Overview of Manufacturing Engineering at UBC

This program looks at the entire manufacturing process from the concept and fabrication of individual mechanical parts through to product delivery. For example, when compared to UBC’s Mechanical Engineering program (MECH), the fundamental difference is that it focuses on the manufacturing of machine parts, as opposed to general machine design. The Manufacturing Program includes elements from a variety of programs/disciplines including mechanical, electrical, computer and material and links them together within the context of manufacturing. The program is also highly unique in that there is no other program in BC training students for work in this area.

Beyond the factory, manufacturing engineering provides a different way of evaluating, conceptualizing and creating new things.
