What will I learn?

Manufacturing Systems Engineers turn ideas into reality. They play key roles in the creation of almost every single product that you see or use, from clothing to computers, from automobiles to space shuttles, from frozen foods to toys. The challenges of creating and using new materials to meet future needs, relieving human drudgery by automating dangerous and onerous production processes, and forming and leading teams of engineering experts are all examples of a few of the numerous opportunities for which the Manufacturing Systems Engineering Program prepares its students.

Manufacturing Systems Engineering majors at CSUN receive a solid, broad-based education. The program is designed to ensure student intellectual growth in four primary proficiency areas: The design and manufacture of products; The design of manufacturing systems; Materials and manufacturing processes; The management of production processes and resources.

Individual and team assignments on projects and in laboratories provide students with numerous opportunities to develop their technical, design, leadership, communication, management and team skills. Students in the Manufacturing Systems Engineering Program have the opportunity to work on projects in nine laboratories: Advanced Corrosion Lab; W. M. Keck Advanced Materials Lab; Boeing Automation Engineering Lab; CAE Design Lab; Fracture Mechanics Lab; MacDonald CAD Graphics Lab; Manufacturing Processes Lab; MSEM Design Projects Lab; Pickett Engineering Materials Lab.

In senior design, Manufacturing Systems Engineering students also use the real world as their basic lab by executing real projects in local industry. Projects have included design and production of a competition robot, and design and fabrication of such products as a folding pickup truck bed extender; a tool chest; a grape seed oil extractor; an automated storage unit; design and development of a CD-ROM counter; design of an improved packaging process for industrial adhesives and polymers; planning and design of a facility for electronics manufacturing; plant layout design for the production of a medical patient monitor; and development of an ISO-9000 quality assurance system.
