Manufacturing Engineering Technology
What Can I Do With A Major In Manufacturing Engineering Technology?
Manufacturing Engineering Technologists work in teams with others to develop tools, processes, machines and equipment to make quality products at a reasonable cost. Manufacturing engineering technologists get involved in the production of a variety of industrial and consumer goods and develop the expertise to see production through to completion. Depending on their area of focus, students may work with engineering graphics, engineering materials and mechanics, hydraulics, or electronics and electric power. They may use computer aided design or computer aided manufacturing equipment, robotics, and other planning tools to evaluate manufacturing processes with an eye to increasing productivity, reducing costs, and maintaining or improving the quality of a manufactured product.
Manufacturing Engineering Technologists are usually employed in the functional areas of quality assurance, plant management, materials handling, industrial safety, systems planning, process planning, computer integrated manufacturing. They may provide technical customer service, or work in technical sales and marketing because of their strong knowledge of equipment and processes.
