Overview

When someone needs to plan or develop tools, machines and equipment which can produce a quality product, he/she requires a proper understanding of the manufacturing process. The ability to plan or practice of manufacturing anything of value is Manufacturing Engineering. It is a branch of Engineering which deals with Engineering procedures of manufacturing and production methods. Manufacturing Engineers prime concern is to convert raw material into an upgraded product or new product which can be used to satisfy human needs.

 Manufacturing Engineering is based on Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering skills along with the touch of Commerce, Economics and Business Management. This field deals with the integration of different systems for producing the quality product at a minimum expenditure of capital. These products are produced at a reasonable price by applying the principle of Physics and the knowledge of the manufacturing system. The manufacturing system is based on the following studies:-

  • Crafting
  • Putting Out system
  • British Factory System
  • Mass customization and Production
  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing
  • Computer-aided Technology in Manufacturing
  • Just In Time Manufacturing
  • Lean Manufacturing
  • Flexible Manufacturing
  • Prefabrication
  • Ownership
  • Fabrication

 The engineers from this field develop and create physical artefacts, production processes, technology, industrial systems et cetera.  It has abroad scope which includes designing and developing products. Manufacturing Engineering is considered as a sub-discipline of Industrial Engineering/ System Engineering and has similarity to Mechanical Engineering. The advancement of technology and the spread of innovation effects the failure or success of a project.  Manufacturing Engineering focuses on the design development and operational process of production to obtain high quality and economically competitive products. This may include material handling, machines, tools, robots or even computers. 

The job of Manufacturing Engineers is to ensure smooth and cost-effective production of the high-performance product in the industry, they prepare plans and instructions for the manufacturing processes. The Manufacturing Engineers set the functions on the machines so that the production process could go on with ease. They supervise Fabricators, give directions for efficient completion of the production process, they solve problems of the production and manage repair and maintenance work, test new equipment and types of machinery to authenticate them. Whenever an industry requires to purchase or install new machinery it is the duty of Manufacturing Engineers to guide them to purchase the best machines available in the market.

Area of Studies in Manufacturing Engineering

Manufacturing Engineering is an extremely important domain which is available in universities all over the world. The area of studies relevant to Manufacturing Engineering is categorized into various sub-disciplines which are:-

The students should have mathematical expertise and knowledge of Mechanical Engineering to understand product design process of complex products. That is why Manufacturing Engineering has a very few specialized classes this course is often considered as one of the most difficult and complex branches of engineering.

Eligibility for Manufacturing Engineering

The eligibility criteria for manufacturing engineering is same as other engineering courses. The students should have more expert knowledge of mathematics and applied physics to study. The course for Associate's or bachelor’s degree the students should have 12th completed with percentage expected by the University from the science major  in mathematics for Master’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering the student should have degree in Engineering from a recognized University with minimum of 50% but apart from this basic requirement the student should have proficiency in English too.  The student should have a certification for passing TOEFL, IELTS, GRE, GMAT with points or grade required by the University.

 Following are the important points while applying for university abroad:-

  • Certificates of passing diploma degree
  • Certificate of passing  English proficiency test  TOEFL, IELTS, GRE, GMAT
  • Updated Resume
  • Academic Essay
  • Letter of Recommendation from the university or head of the department
  • Statement of Purpose
  • Documents related to loan and visa

The student should research the ratings of University, the fee structure, the curriculum taught at the University, the accommodation around the campus or less expensive tenancies.  The student should have all the required documents along with the mark sheets before enrolling for any college or institution. The student must apply for loans if required and should complete all the formalities related to visa. There are cheaper tenants near the college where the students can reside while studying. The student should have known about the university they want to apply for and apply for it before last calls. A college plays an important role in shaping the future of students and they should apply only to the best institutions in the field the Universities at UK, USA, Australia, China, and European countries which are considered to have better facilities for students and they can have a better future prospect and more job opportunities.

Top Colleges Level Wise

Among the branches of Engineering the manufacturing engineering at a very few University. The major universities which have manufacturing engineering as a specialized branch of engineering are as follows:-

  • Georgia Institute of Technology
