Advanced and Biomedical Manufacturing

Program Goals Statement

This concentration prepares students to enter highly-automated manufacturing industries as automation specialists and manufacturing technicians or for technical positions in biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries. In the advanced manufacturing option: Students learn to solve complex manufacturing problems using computer-aided design, evaluation and simulation techniques, and engineering principles. The curriculum covers such aspects of manufacturing engineering as materials processing (traditional and CNC), industrial automation, material science, hydraulics, computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM).

Program Information

• This program is especially valuable to the person who wants technical diversity. Summer courses will reduce fall and spring semester course loads.

Suggested Technical Electives

• Manufacturing: EGR-112, EGR-211, CAD-211, and choose one EGR-190, EGR-299, CAD-101,  CAD-112, or any CED

• Bio-Manufacturing: BIO-121 and choose one BIO-115 or BIO-233, choose one BIO-126, BIO-240, or CHM-113

• Automation & Robotics: EGR-113, EGR-171, and EGR-211

After Bristol

• Graduates of the biomedical option can enter the workforce as biomedical, bioprocess or pharmaceutical manufacturing technicians.

• Graduates work as automation specialists, manufacturing technicians, design technicians, CAD designers, engineering aides, field service technicians, technical representatives, and maintenance technicians. It will open employment doors to many jobs that require multidisciplinary competencies.
