Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management is an integrated professional education made up of three components. The Operations Management component develops knowledge on process design and analysis, materials planning and control systems, quality improvement, and strategic decisions.
The Business component provides an understanding of business fundamentals as well as current business trends and practices. The Engineering Technology component provides a solid framework in engineering and manufacturing fundamentals, including computer-aided design with materials sciences. Finally, the work experience requirement puts all three segments into practice.
Western’s Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management program is a product of a cooperative effort between faculty and industry which has resulted in a curriculum that combines leadership, technology, and operations management.
The program is designed to prepare students to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. Industry scholarships and internships coupled with a curriculum taught by dedicated and accomplished faculty is combination resulting in student success. The size of the program is relatively small (100-130 students), which means each student is given individual attention from a faculty advisor, senior level student mentor, and business mentor, and is eligible for scholarships.
