Dynamics, machines and processes.
Manufacturing engineering is all about optimizing large scale manufacturing processes. The production of goods by hand or using machinery is manufacturing in a nutshell. Manufacturing engineering focuses on the development, optimisation and maintenance of large-scale manufacturing using machines and robotics. A common role for a manufacturing engineer is in management, supervision and quality control of a production process.
Areas of focus include production line accuracy, quality control and the creation of instruction manuals for operation. Graduates learn computer programming skills and have a good understanding of machine processes, tools and maintenance. The goods produced by the manufacturing industry include all consumer items and industrial components. This industry is constantly expanding, providing many career paths for manufacturing engineers.
