Manufacturing Engineering - Employment

Employment

Manufacturing engineering is just one facet of the engineering industry. Manufacturing engineers enjoy improving the production process from start to finish. They have the ability to keep the whole production process in mind as they focus on a particular portion of the process. Successful students in manufacturing engineering degree programs are inspired by the notion of starting with a natural resource, such as a block of wood, and ending with a usable, valuable product, such as a desk, produced efficiently and economically.

Manufacturing engineers are closely connected with engineering and industrial design efforts. Examples of major companies that employ manufacturing engineers in the United States include General Motors Corporation, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, Boeing, Gates Corporation and Pfizer. Examples in Europe include Airbus, Daimler, BMW, Fiat, Navistar International, and Michelin Tyre.

Industries where manufacturing engineers are generally employed include:

  • Aerospace industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Chemical industry
  • Computer industry
  • Electronics industry
  • Food processing industry
  • Garment industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Pulp and paper industry

Famous quotes containing the word employment:

    As long as learning is connected with earning, as long as certain jobs can only be reached through exams, so long must we take this examination system seriously. If another ladder to employment was contrived, much so-called education would disappear, and no one would be a penny the stupider.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    It is the business of the wealthy man
    To give employment to the artisan.
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    What most clearly characterizes true freedom and its true employment is its misemployment.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
