About the Program
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
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 are a consideration in determining how long it will take you to complete the program.
Any Boeing employee can elect to take any classes offered through the program as non-admitted students without entering a specific program (if a course has pre-requisites, an official transcript must be provided to show completion of the coursework).
