The manufacturing engineer is responsible for helping design manufacturing processes as well as deciding how to build the product after the design specifications are determined. Students will learn about engineering materials and their transformations through manufacturing processes into products.
To practice this profession, students must have a special knowledge of manufacturing processes and a working knowledge of many other related disciplines. Manufacturing engineering graduates are in demand by all types and sizes of manufacturing companies because of their diversified training in traditional as well as new areas of manufacturing. The rapid growth of new technologies in computer-integrated manufacturing has opened an entirely new world of opportunities for manufacturing engineers. The trend in industry is toward utilizing design engineers and manufacturing engineers as a team in order to produce more economical and functional products.
