Manufacturing Engineering Program

What is Manufacturing Engineering?

Manufacturing Engineering involves the research, design, development, use and improvement of the machines, tools, materials and processes used in manufacturing. Manufacturing Engineers must be creative and analytical, capable of using technology to develop new and better production processes and troubleshooting when equipment or processes are not producing desirable results. Responsible for workflow and a facilities layout, Manufacturing Engineers collaborate with product designers to ensure quality and cost efficient production.
