The industrial and manufacturing engineering (IME) associate degree provides you with the skills required to positively impact a company’s bottom line. This is accomplished through a study of those topics which directly contribute to the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization’s manufacturing operations, such as simulation, lean manufacturing, quality management, automation, safety, and environmental issues.

Not only will students get the tools they need to solve manufacturing problems, but they’ll also learn to be well-rounded, versatile business people.
