Unlike professionals in the field of administration, production engineers receive solid training in the fundamental disciplines of the exact sciences (physics, chemistry and mathematics) and a broad range of specific engineering disciplines, together with disciplines in the fields of administration and economics. This broad training puts production engineers in a unique position compared with other graduates in professions and allows them to appreciate problems in industrial and other business environments from a global rather than a piecemeal perspective. Although they are not specialists in specific fields of engineering, production engineers are able to understand the root causes of industrial problems and identify the technologies needed to solve them. They therefore play an important role in the creation, implementation and dissemination of technological innovations. The specific areas of knowledge they work with include 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. In view of these characteristics, it is hardly surprising that production engineers are some of the most sought after professionals for management positions in today’s job market. Students who graduate as production engineers at the Limeira campus will have received training with various features that distinguish it from 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 and self-confidence. Graduates will be fully qualified to plan and control production and to design work organization. The program aims to develop students’ entrepreneurial spirit and their ability to manage resources.
