Manufacturing Management Minor

For companies to grow and prosper, skilled workers are needed to design, develop and manage manufacturing systems and technologies. They must also understand and embrace traditional technologies in manufacturing, construction, and design, in order to build upon and improve those technologies. In the manufacturing management minor, you’ll explore topics such as robotics, electronics, and computer-operated machinery through hands-on activities. You’ll learn to apply this knowledge to help solve manufacturing problems and improve system methods and processes. You’ll also learn business concepts and workplace safety requirements, which will make you well-suited for leadership or management roles within business, manufacturing, production, and engineering environments.
