Advanced Manufacturing Major, B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Advanced Manufacturing is a practical degree program designed to prepare graduates for challenging careers in the high-tech arena of manufacturing. The program requires a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and liberal studies as well as the technical core. A total of 120 semester hours are required in this degree program. Eleven hours of mathematics including manufacturing statistics and survey of calculus, and twelve hours of chemistry and physics are required. All Advanced Manufacturing students must also complete the Core 39 requirements.

An Advanced Manufacturing student can complete the program complete the program in four years provided they enter USI prepared to successfully complete MATH 118 (Comprehensive Pre-Calculus) in their first semester. Those students who do not enter the program ready for MATH 118 will take an additional four to ten hours of mathematics courses necessary to raise their mathematical abilities to a required level.

In accordance with the University’s transfer policy (found in the undergraduate admission requirements and regulations section), the faculty of the engineering department examine on a case-by-case basis the transcripts of students transferring from other institutions. A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required for all TECH and engineering courses that a student takes as part of their program of study.

Petition for permission to waive any program requirements must be approved by the chair of the engineering department. After admission into the program, required technical courses may be taken at another institution for transfer of credit only when approved in advance by both the student’s advisor and the department chair.

Core 39

The core curriculum at USI, Core 39, offers students at our institution an outstanding opportunity to have a well-rounded education.  Some of the choices within Core 39 are limited for engineering majors in order to fulfill program needs.  Courses within Core 39 that are required for Advanced Manufacturing majors:
