An advanced manufacturing program and laboratories can help the third world countries to standardize their products and use mass production for being able to compete in the highly competitive international market. It will be a great help to the industrial companies of these countries if the educational institutions educate and train their graduates for being employed by these companies. The state-of-the-art Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and Robotics laboratories should be considered for this educational goal. These labs will significantly improve the quality and capacity of educational programs6 by providing excellent teaching aids and hands-on experience to educate students in the theory and application of computer integrated manufacturing technology. A new advanced manufacturing curriculum can be designed that includes robotics and advanced manufacturing related courses and labs to provide meaningful hands-on activities. All students in this program will receive enhanced training and experience utilizing multimedia software and workbooks specifically tailored for this program. Also local industry expertise can use these labs to demonstrate the potential industrial use of CIM and related labs to increase productivity, accuracy and safety. As a result, the Industrial Robotics & Advanced Manufacturing program graduates can satisfy the growing need for robotics and real-time programming expertise in industries and government agencies and will significantly improve the future of undergraduate education 1, 2, 3. In this paper, we describe a new state-of-the-art Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) lab which plays the key role and has been established in our school to support our future Industrial Robotics & Advanced Manufacturing program.
