A new two-semester undergraduate course, IME Inc., was developed for integrating design, manufacturing and production into the engineering curriculum. The course objective is to improve manufacturing engineering education by providing students with manufacturing and production experiences analogous to those obtained by journalism students working on a student-run newspaper. Assessment strategies for evaluating team performance and the impact of the course on students' learning readiness were also discussed. It is recognize that the course requires a significant investment of faculty time as it is currently structured.
