Computer Integrated Manufacturing

Mission Statement
The mission of the Vincennes University Computer Integrated Manufacturing program is to provide students the knowledge and skills to analyze equipment and processes used in automated manufacturing.  Through course work and completion of extensive laboratory experiences, the student will develop a thorough knowledge of technology integration used in automation.  Students will use teamwork, collaboration, and information gathering to complete their laboratory exercises.  The study of a broad range of technologies used in automated manufacturing prepares the student for placement in a variety of careers within the scope of manufacturing.  A combination of technical and general education courses will prepare the student for immediate career placement or, if they choose, academic transfer to a baccalaureate degree program.

Program Learning Outcomes
Students who complete course work in the Computer Integrated Manufacturing program will be able to:

  • create solutions to manufacturing problems by combining technologies used in industrial manufacturing.
  • troubleshoot automation system faults by analyzing the function of system components.
  • apply the operational theories of industrial manufacturing technologies to create new or modify existing manufacturing processes.
  • apply the knowledge of equipment functionality used in industrial manufacturing to properly install, maintain, modify, and repair the equipment.
  • create specific operation programs for automation controllers.
