Abstract
NOTE: The first page of text has been automatically extracted and included below in lieu of an abstract

-- Be aggressive and imaginative in curricular innovation. Decide from your own personal growth what new technologies to introduce into your courses and curriculum. Create new program titles and course names to convey the sense of excitement ion your corner of the campus. Invent your own ways to invigorate your courses and your program. -- Communicate. To all of your constituencies -- prospective students and their parents, secondary schools, individual companies and industry groups, community leaders, and peers.

Perhaps, just perhaps, a combination of these actions will revitalize university-level manufacturing education -- and with it the influx of bright and able new manufacturing engineers into the economy. The absolutely vital core to any such transformation is the concerned individual. Do not wait for someone to point the way and tell you how. As the commercial slogan goes, “just do it”.
