In an effort to better prepare the future workforce for sought after engineering skills, the mechanical engineering program at the University of North Florida (UNF) has updated its undergraduate curriculum to reflect these needs and is also providing its students with opportunities outside of the academic curriculum. This paper addresses how objectives of increasing the design and manufacturing preparedness of undergraduate students, increasing students' skills in applying theory to practice, and at the same time improving the students' communication skills can be achieved. In meeting these objectives the program has developed a course, Integrated Design and Manufacturing, The course also helps to provide the students with research opportunities with the local industry, and organizes opportunities for the undergraduate students to attend conferences to present their research findings.
