    Abstract

    With global competitiveness as the motivation, industry and academia must join forces to eliminate competency gaps in the capabilities of engineering technology graduates. Manufacturing automation and its specialized machinery are often the realm of manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology graduates. This paper discusses the approach developed by the mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology programs at Arizona State University to address a critical competency gap, one dealing with manufacturing automation (as identified by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers). The six courses composing the automation concentration of ASU's Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology degree are briefly described. A more detailed description of the MET 451, Introduction to Automation, course is also provided. The course's content and the accompanying laboratory equipment are described. Due to the industrial partners' donations, the laboratory is based on full-scale, standard industry components.
