About the Program

This is one of three majors offered for students who seek to contribute at the interface between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments.

When you major in automation and systems integration engineering technology, you will address what is needed to move product concepts into efficient, automated production. The curriculum focuses on the entire design and manufacturing process; you’ll understand how each team member benefits the system.

Special Features

  • Learn in a hands-on environment with a 1,400-square-foot, fully functional, automated manufacturing laboratory
  • Focus on applying and implementing technology, in a hands-on approach, to solve real-world problems.
  • Explore a wide range of career options in product improvement, industrial processes, or plant operations
  • Utilize the Polytechnic learning environment to become a career-ready graduate

ATTN: MFET students enrolled before Fall 2014

Current manufacturing engineering technology (MFET) students can use the same resources listed on this page. MFET plans of study remain active for those students already enrolled at Purdue.
