Provide multi-disciplinary graduate education and practical training opportunities in the theory and practice of integrated manufacturing systems engineering at the master's degree level.
Bring university and industry expertise and interests together to conduct basic and applied research leading to the development of advanced modern manufacturing systems technology.
Advance the application of modern manufacturing technology through interactive technology transfer between university research and industrial applications.
The Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering Institute (IMSEI) was established in 1984. IMSEI offers a master's degree program that provides multidisciplinary graduate education and practical training opportunities in the theory and practice of integrated manufacturing systems engineering. IMSEI provides a manufacturing presence and program environment in the NCSU College of Engineering in which faculty, graduate students and industry can engage cooperatively in multidisciplinary graduate education, basic and applied research, and technology transfer in areas of common interest related to modern manufacturing systems technology. The objective of the IMSE Institute is to offer students with traditional backgrounds in engineering and the physical sciences an opportunity to broaden their understanding of the multidisciplinary area of manufacturing systems. Core areas of concentration are offered in manufacturing systems, logistics, mechatronics, and biomanufacturing. Learn more about IMSEI.
