Curriculum & Requirements

Manufacturing Technology, DFM Option, Bachelor of Science (BS)

The design for manufacturability option prepares the graduate for placement in the world of manufacturing. A student graduating with this option should have mastered the basic skills appropriate for the design, development, manufacturing and sale of consumer products. Students should enter the labor force at the middle-management level. The breadth of preparation in the design option provides a broad foundation from which to build and progress.

Notes: Including university requirements, the above program requires a minimum of 180 credits, an average of 15 credits per quarter for a 12 quarter, four-year program. The 180 credits are based upon the following assumptions:

  • Students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take METC 102;
  • Students will have satisfied university competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See university competencies.)

Grade Requirements: in order to graduate, students majoring in the department must earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
