Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Learning Factory is a facility that supports product realization within a new practice based engineering curriculum developed and adopted by the participating universities of the Manufacturing Engineering Education Partnership (MEEP) bringing together Pennsylvania State University, University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, and the University of Washington with Sandia National Laboratories and its corporate partners. The learning factory is an activity based facility designed to tightly link activities in the classroom with hands-on experience. The design and implementation is intended to allow students to hone their skills and practice engineering in an environment emulating an industrial setting.
