Research Institute for Manufacturing and Engineering Systems, RIMES


Welcome to the Research Institute for Manufacturing and Engineering Systems (RIMES). RIMES was created in 1995 as the Institute for Manufacturing and Materials Management (IM3). We have recently renamed the Institute while maintaining its focus on Manufacturing and Materials Management. The institute has also evolved and taken the lead in focusing on the research of new knowledge of systems and its applications to Manufacturing and Engineering Systems.

As part of UTEP, the Institute is committed to education. Members of the staff teach classes, sponsor research at the University, and are encouraged to participate in seminars, conferences and lectures. The institute has a long history of collaboration with private industry. We are committed to continue and expand this synergy.

If you are an engineer who wants to help solve today's business problems and meet your future career goals, our Graduate Certificate Program is perfect for you. The program employs an interdisciplinary approach based on an "entire view" of missions and operational environments. It combines the capabilities of platforms, systems, operators, and support to fashion solutions that meet customer needs.

- Dr. Bill Tseng, Director
