What is Manufacturing Engineering?

Visit to the Stryker Innovation Center, Cork: November 2017

Manufacturing Engineering is the branch of engineering that oversees the complex process of making things on a large scale.  Manufacturing Engineers design the processes, the systems and the tools used in the manufacturing of a product. They ensure that the plant works efficiently and effectively to produce high quality products, often incorporating automated and robotics systems. Manufacturing Engineering develops systems used to plan and control the manufacture of products, conduct risk analysis and strive to improve environmental impact in a modern manufacturing company.

Manufacturing Engineering course Aims

The Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering is a three year level 7 programme. Graduates are trained in the core areas of mechatronics, robotics, production plant, power systems, engineering design, manufacturing technology, operations and quality management.

Special feature – Project

The main project contributes to both the students learning and development. It is one of the most enjoyable features of the course as they deal with real world problems. Each project has a client and the students work in pairs to design, build and test a solution that meets the client’s needs. The project objectives are agreed early on in the process and they work with their supervisor in a collaborative environment supported by the project team.

Examples have been design of machine components for local industry, Six Sigma, energy reduction and machine optimisation for a local company, design of a drinking system for a person with special needs.
