About the Program

Modern product manufacturing is increasingly supported by data-driven design, production and support throughout a product’s lifecycle. With a major in virtual product integration (VPI), you will use the latest tools to effectively communicate and support each step in the product’s lifecycle. In your classes, you will define, build, and visualize 3D models to demonstrate how products are built, how they are made, and how they are serviced and supported. Your work will be done primarily with product lifecycle management (PLM) software tools for simulation, computer-aided design (CAD), and product data management (PDM).
