Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Production Savvy

It’s a maker’s world

Manufacturing is more than a product. It’s a complex system of processes that need to move like one well-oiled machine, ensuring the quality of each box of cereal or vehicle produced.

As a manufacturing engineering technician, you’ll be responsible for keeping each wheel of production moving smoothly, swiftly and efficiently.

It’s a job with great advancement potential, especially if you decide to earn a bachelor’s degree. And you have no worries about the credits you earn transferring to a four-year college or university.

Ferris State University offers a Bachelor of Applied Science in Industrial Technology & Management at our South Campus in Warren if you’re thinking about becoming a production or engineering supervisor.
