Our students are involved in industry projects, whether its a capstone Lean project for Basic Research, or a Quality Systems class project for a local company.
Faculty research topics include dissimilar metal joining, composite manufacturing processes, system modeling, and simulation.
Students have opportunities to work on projects outside of the classroom, such as the electric Streamliner. Supportive industry partners, mentoring faculty, and great facilities allow these experiences to happen.
BYU Manufacturing students learn advanced technical skills such as CNC programming that will allow them to compete in an advanced and computerized world of manufacturing.
