Abstract

An Advanced Manufacturing Workshop for educators and students to provide current procedures of innovative technology within modern manufacturing practices. The agenda was organized to have presentations from collaborators within industry and academia to address project results on advanced manufacturing, state-of- the-art technologies, and current best practices in industry and education. Attendees conducted focused technical discussions and evaluations on emerging technologies and student needs. The following were the main topics of discussion and events from the workshop: Green Energy Manufacturing, Additive Manufacturing, Digital Manufacturing, Sensor Manufacturing, Robotics-Integrated Manufacturing, Electronics Manufacturing, Surface Engineering, Micro Fabrication, Nano-Manufacturing and Manufacturing Quality Control. Project results on research and education issues in learning for course, curriculum, and laboratory development program were also discussed. The event was organized by faculty and perspective students interested in pursuing a career within engineering. Further collaboration between students and presenters from industry allowed for future communication and interaction of various manufacturing facilities. Such collaboration between presenters from industry, faculty, and students enhances the mobility for engineering education as modern industrial manufacturing facilities and technological procedures/methodologies gain exposure to academia. Student exposure to current techniques and understanding motives for their implementation within the manufacturing industry is important for understanding outcomes of technological aspects as industry seeks to improve manufacturing.
