As a result of a strategic effort by UK to move to the forefront of new technologies and workforce development for the future of manufacturing, the Center for Manufacturing will be integrated into a new proposed entity – the Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing (ISM).
The newly proposed ISM, under the direction of I.S. Jawahir, the James F. Hardymon Chair in Manufacturing Systems Professor of Mechanical Engineering will advance progress toward sustainability for Kentucky, the United States and the world.
Specifically, once approved the ISM will conduct basic and applied academic research, invest in and commercialize innovative products, processes and technologies, transfer knowledge to industry through extension and outreach, and develop and deliver credit and non-credit education. You can visit their new website at www.ism.uky.edu.
Also, you may visit the new Lean Systems website at www.lean.uky.edu
Rapid Prototyping, the MFS degree program and other center components are moving to other departments within the College of Engineering and their web pages will be updated to reflect these changes as soon as possible.Please continue to use the website to access Center for Manufacturing programs until new pages/sites are established.
