Manufacturing engineers oversee the production process from beginning to end – they design, operate and optimize advanced manufacturing environments, develop digital models for manufacturing processes, design and control manufacturing machinery, and manage the manufacturing environment.
What do manufacturing engineers do?
Manufacturing engineers work to design manufacturing processes and optimize production costs and product quality, acting in a supervisory capacity to provide strong technical guidance and oversee production schedules. They are specialists in “making” products that customers want. They design factories, production schedules and quality systems to ensure that the products they make are economical, sustainable and safe.
