Why Study This Program?

The Advanced Manufacturing concentration at Millersville University prepares students for an ever-changing workplace that is increasingly driven by advanced technology. Manufacturing is a matter of fundamental importance to the economic strength and national security of the United States. The new era of manufacturing is cleaner, more precise and more effective than ever before; and it requires highly skilled workers.

MU offers three courses of study for students interested in Advanced Manufacturing: an Advanced Manufacturing concentration within the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Applied Engineering and Technology Management, an Associate of Technology (A.T.) degree in Applied Engineering and Technology or a minor in Advanced Manufacturing to complement one of the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees within the Applied Engineering and Technology department. 

The Applied Engineering & Technology Management degrees are accredited by The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).

What Will You Learn?

Coursework includes theoretical principles and hands-on experiences with processing all categories of materials including computer-aided design and machining technologies. Students will learn the principles of efficient process design and management, and acquire business skills necessary to compete in the 21st century industry.

Advanced Manufacturing internships combine the student's academic, technical and management preparation with actual on-the-job experiences in production facilities ranging from custom piecework to high-volume operations. Internships involve a significant management component and students are required to engage in management-related activities such as planning, organizing, directing and supervision at the workplace. The student, the employer and the Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology faculty work cooperatively to assure the internship experience achieves the best possible learning value.
