Congratulations: To Daniel Jordan, CMfgT, our chapter’s newest Certified Manufacturing Engineering Technologist. Daniel took the Fundamentals of Manufacturing Exam in place of the final exam in the MANF305 Computer Aided Manufacturing Course. Now he will be able to take the Certified Manufacturing Engineering exam 2 years after beginning work upon graduation.
2011: First Semester in the New
For a look at student projects completed in the CAM class this fall check out the Laboratory Groups links near the bottom of the syllabus for the course. There is some real nice work in there.
Students taking the CAM course are offered the option to take the Fundamentals of Manufacturing exam leading to certification as a manufacturing technologist. We have 3 new CMfgT’s:
1. Ethan Ananny
2. Patrick Butler
3. Kenny Curran

Welcome Back: News from Summer-11
We have 12 new Certified Manufacturing Technologists: CMfgT’s
The next Manufacturing Fundamentals exam date is tentatively set for: Wednesday, November 30. Please consider studying with us to add this prestigious credential (Yourname, CMfgT) while you are still an undergraduate. It will separate you from others when applying for co-op positions now and jobs at graduation. You will also be eligible to take the Certified Manufacturing Engineering Exam (CMfgE) after 2 years of job experience.

Vans will leave Wentworth early Saturday morning, sometime around 6am, and return to Wentworth in the early evening. It is a cost of $35.00 per person including the boat, all necessary fishing equipment, and vans. Checks payable to 'Wentworth' will begin to be collected at 2:00pm, next Tuesday, 2/19, at the SME meeting in the Automated Manufacturing Laboratory, Rubenstein 101. You must fill out waiver a form (linked below) and bring that with you to the meeting with a check to reserve a spot. If you are not able to make the meeting but want to attend the event please contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chris Lochner at email@example.com to setup a time to meet. The boat will fill on a first come first serve basis. There is much interest in this event and the boat will fill, so I encourage everyone that wants to go to attend the meeting this Tuesday with check and waiver form in hand.
I hope to see you all there.
