Graduates from the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program are prepared for a wide variety of manufacturing positions. These include production engineer, process engineer, process development engineer, tooling design engineer, quality control engineer, and other vital manufacturing tasks.
In today's concurrent engineering environment, manufacturing engineers are called upon to perform a wide range of tasks, from designing and purchasing manufacturing equipment to improving and troubleshooting the manufacturing process. Manufacturing engineers are involved in the design and continuous improvement of product design, manufacturing equipment, and production tooling. The manufacturing engineering curriculum provides education in a variety of areas including:
- Manufacturing processes
- Robotics and automation
- Industrial controls
- Manufacturing tool design
- Computer-aided design and manufacturing
- Engineering materials
- Manufacturing planning
- Quality control
Classes required to complete the BS Degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology can be found in the left column of the Dual Degree AE&GA Form.
The length of time required to complete program requirements depends upon the number of classes transferred into program requirements, the number of classes taken per term, and the number of terms the student completes in a year. The student's work schedule, overtime schedule, family life, and outside commitments must be taken into consideration when deciding upon admittance to the program.
Any Boeing employee can elect to take any classes offered through the program as non-admitted students without entering a specific program.
