Laboratory development for a manufacturing oriented interdisciplinary baccalaureate degree program in electromechanical engineering technology (BSEMET)

a case study

Abstract

The objective of this paper is to describe the development of laboratories for a new manufacturing oriented interdisciplinary baccalaureate degree program in electromechanical engineering technology (BSEMET) implemented at Penn State Altoona in Fall 1995. The BSEMET program has been developed out of a growing demand from small to medium sized U.S. manufacturing organizations for technical workforce with a wide range of skills for solving problems simultaneously involving technologies related to manufacturing, data communications, instrumentation, and computer technologies used in today's industrial settings. New innovative laboratories have been developed to support the courses to be taught in the manufacturing oriented interdisciplinary BSEMET curriculum.
