Description: This paper outlines the curriculum development effort for improving the interdisciplinary engineering program at the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR). UMR currently offers two BS degree option programs in manufacturing, one in Mechanical Engineering and the other in Engineering Management, and MS degree programs in manufacturing are also offered. As the manufacturing engineering program is relatively expensive to run, especially the manufacturing laboratories, a strategy to integrate various campus resources in materials and processes on campus to improve the curriculum has been implemented. The collaborations with manufacturing companies and other partnering institutions to enhance the program are discussed. Also included in this paper are the major curriculum development and outreach activities, including an interdisciplinary capstone design project to provide opportunities for students to design, manufacture, and actually market a product, which can stimulate students interest in real-world product realization, the summer manufacturing workshop for high-school teachers and students, and research programs to develop laboratory facilities and support graduate programs.
