About CME

The Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence (CME) is located on the University of Mississippi’s Oxford campus right on the historic University Circle. CME was established in June 2008 to provide unique opportunities for students interested in manufacturing. The opportunities developed are considered distinctive to the CME and are not available to undergraduate students at other universities in the United States. The CME is developing interdisciplinary educational opportunities within an innovative academic learning model that provides our students with the practical experiences, fundamental knowledge, and creative skill sets needed to lead the world of modern manufacturing. The CME is working with companies who express a strong desire to become industry leaders and who wish to work with CME staff and students. Together, the CME and these business partners are striving to serve their employees, improve business conditions, and promote economic growth.

About Our ‘swish’ Logo

Minimal CME Logo
This is the minimal logo for the Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence.

The manufacturing process begins and ends with the human mind and spirit. This simple belief is the foundation of the CME program. Our logo is our interpretation of this belief. The symbol begins with the human with arms open and extended upward and moves on to the manufacturing process; yet, always returns to the human element.

If you don’t see that… don’t worry. Let us spend some time with you and open your mind to the amazing opportunities available to you in manufacturing.
