Hands-on Learning at Its Finest


The Experiential Entrepreneurial Education (E3) program was officially launched on August 28, 2017. This program is the first of its kind in the nation, as it combines engineering, manufacturing, industry, and entrepreneurship in an innovative learning space where the latest technology is readily available.

Part of life at CDME is to always learn through applied research and novel approaches. We are trained to be innovative in an environment that extends beyond the classroom and into the power of a high-powered CNC robot or large capacity, 3D printer, to name a few. The training of our students allows them to be as ready as possible for careers in the real world - a mutual benefit to their future employer as well. Hands-on, experiential learning is as common within CDME as is a calculator to the accountant. Our offices are their classroom.

Members of FANUC visited CDME to train our students and employees exactly 24 hours after we officially launched the new E3 program. Industry partnerships, advanced manufacturing and hands-on learning are what it's all about. FANUC is a proud partner in educating Buckeyes at CDME. #industryready fanucamerica.com
