Session 3247 National Center of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing Education

Abstract This paper reports on the NSF-sponsored National Center of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing Education. The center’s objectives are to develop and disseminate novel manufacturing education approaches that address competency gaps and prepare BS and associate degree graduates to contribute to the long-term improvement of U.S. manufacturing capability. National Center Of Excellence For Advanced Manufacturing Education The National Center Of Excellence For Advanced Manufacturing Education (NCE/AME) was established in Dayton, Ohio in January, 1995 with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF).* The center is based in the Advanced Integrated Manufacturing Center (AIM Center) that is jointly operated by Sinclair Community College and the University of Dayton. The NCE/AME was one of the first three centers funded by the NSF under the Advanced Technological Education Program (ATE). The center’s objectives are to develop and disseminate novel manufacturing education approaches that prepare BS and associate degree graduates to contribute to the long-term improvement of manufacturing capability in the United States. Innovations in curriculum design, content, and pedagogy are being developed. Additional objectives are aimed at improving mathematics and science education in grades 11 and 12 of secondary schools by providing educational materials that emphasize the application of fundamental concepts to authentic applications, typically relevant to manufacturing careers. Faculty development for high school, community college, and university faculty members is another important objective. Initial funding for the center was for three years from January 1, 1995 through December 31, 1997. The work of the center will continue through the end of the year 2000 with three years of additional NSF funding. Continuation is planned beyond 2000 with revenues derived from a variety of sources. While based in Dayton, Ohio, the work of the center is being carried out by a very large, geographically dispersed team of professionals from academia and industry. This has been done for several reasons. The planned wide implementation of the results of the Center's efforts should be facilitated by having contributors from several areas of the country. The wider variety of industry types and specific industries recruited as contributors to the module development process should provide significant additional validation of the competencies contained in the program and a more useful curriculum design.
