Manufacturing engineering concerns the planning, design and management of organizational systems involving people, materials, technologies, financial resources and the environment. Unlike production engineers, manufacturing engineers are more concerned with manufacturing techniques, processes for calculating and evaluating materials, products, tools and the best manufacturing methodologies. They are specialists in specific fields of manufacturing engineering who are responsible for identifying problems and prescribing the most appropriate solutions. They therefore play an important role in the creation, implementation and dissemination of technological innovations. The specific areas of knowledge they work with include manufacturing techniques and processes; the ability to evaluate the processes and techniques required as a function of the development and quality of the final product; and a knowledge of management systems overall, covering the planning and implementation of management information systems, industrial process control systems, technology management, quality systems and systems for improving efficiency. Manufacturing engineers can find work in practically every branch of manufacturing industry, from companies producing non-durable consumer goods to sectors geared towards the production of leading-edge technologies and are sought after by companies providing services in very different areas, such as transport and logistics services, telecommunications services, engineering design, hospital services and insurance. Students on this program will receive training with various features that distinguish it from the training offered on other programs. In addition to training in basic mechanical engineering and solid specific, modern, up-to-date professional training, the program seeks to stimulate creativity, self-confidence and an entrepreneurial spirit in students.
