Manufacturing and Engineering Technology

(Accredited by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development)

The manufacturing engineering technology program prepares graduates for pro-
fessional employment in industry's technical and managerial positions. The cur-
riculum is designed to meet individual student needs through common core
courses, technical concentrations, and general education electives. Employment
projections indicate increasing demands for graduates who are technically com-
petent in the manufacturing discipline, with many moving into increasingly
responsible managerial positions. Manufacturing has long been the basis of the
American economy, and manufacturing engineering technology graduates are
uniquely educated and trained for assuming positions that will increase the pro-
ductivity and efficiency of the manufacturing enterprise.

The BYU manufacturing engineering curriculum is nationally recognized as
a leader in its field. Excellent equipment and facilities are available for basic
and advanced manufacturing processes, destructive and nondestructive testing,
compositional and X-ray analysis of materials, computer process control, and
instrumentation for process evaluation and applied research.

Graduate Study. Opportunity for education beyond the bachelor's degree is of-
fered through a manufacturing option administered under the graduate industrial
education program, or through the MBA program.

Physical Plant Administration

This program prepares men to serve in administrative and supervisory positions
in industry and in physical plant departments of universities and colleges. During
the next few years, billions of dollars will be spent for new college construction
and campus improvements at nearly two thousand campuses across the nation.
This does not include equal or larger sums which will be spent in plant develop-
ment, maintenance, and operation by private enterprise. The physical plant
administration curriculum is designed and offered to train young men for these
important positions. Graduates will be well prepared to supervise the program-
ming, planning, and construction of major physical facilities as well as to ad-
minister maintenance and operation programs at college and university levels,
and in private industry.

Students completing this four-year program receive the Bachelor of Science
degree in physical plant administration.

The Department of Youth Leadership provides a four-year program leading to the
Bachelor of Science degree. A curriculum is offered that is designed to prepare
men and women for careers as administrators and directors of agencies and
organizations that work with and for youth.

The youth leadership major may select a program of emphasis that will provide
preparation in one of three areas of youth service. Each emphasis requires a
completion of approximately 40 semester hours. Emphasis preparation includes
a concentration of courses designed to prepare men for executive leadership with
the Boy Scouts of America; multiple agencies for men and women who desire
executive leadership with the Boys' Clubs of America, YMCA, Boys' Ranches,
YWCA, Campfire Girls, Girl Scouts of America, etc., and governmental agencies
related to youth; and men and women for youth acculturation and educational
programs which use the outdoors as a laboratory for building interpersonal
values and enriching learning experiences.

In addition to career preparation, the department has a second objective:
to provide college men and women with knowledge and experience in a variety
of youth leadership positions so that they may better serve church and com-
munity as volunteer leaders and participating members.
