The Learning Factory

RMU believes that students learn by doing and that they benefit from practice with the processes and equipment used in industry. The heart of RMU's engineering programs is The Learning Factory, where students gain hands-on experience with design, testing and manufacturing processes and equipment, in much the same way that medical students learn from clinical training in a hospital.

The industrial-grade facility allows students to take a product from concept to reality using cutting-edge technology. It includes equipment for automatic identification, CNC machining and turning, controls, injection molding, machine tool monitoring, machine vision, materials testing, metallography, metrology, packaging, powder metallurgy, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering and robotics. Hardware is supported by a suite of software packages for design, analysis, manufacturing, simulation, offline programming, controls, monitoring, integration, software development, enterprise resource management and other engineering activities.
