Student Life

Built for Student Success

The college experience at the Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence doesn’t happen just in the classroom. Students in the CME can take advantage of numerous opportunities to pursue new interests, favorite activities and build student and professional relationships.

Within the CME, we have a devoted student body, 24-hour access to CME study spaces, and an open-door policy with faculty and staff. The CME is built for student success.
