A state of the art flexible manufacturing system is being installed in June 2018. The system consists of a machining center, laser engraving, in-situ CMM comparator, Bosch Conveyor, industrial and collaborative robotics.
Georgia Southern University made history on Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014, when the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia granted the University with the first undergraduate Manufacturing Engineering degree program in the state of Georgia.
“Manufacturing is returning to the U.S., and the state of Georgia can now prepare its citizens for careers in this fast-growing field,” said Mohammad Davoud, dean of the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Information Technology. “Employees trained in manufacturing will enable Georgia to attract corporations and industries to invest in the state and region. These corporations need manufacturing engineers who are trained to think innovatively and use state-of-the-art techniques and technologies. The new Manufacturing Engineering program at Georgia Southern will do just that.”
