B.S. Manufacturing Engineering
A bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering prepares you to be an industrial problem-solver. As a manufacturing engineer, you will find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes. You’ll work closely with mechanical, electrical and other engineers as a member of the design team to ensure your product can be manufactured, recycled or disposed.
You’ll also create workflows that integrate facilities, equipment, personnel and methods necessary for the efficient and safe manufacture of products sold all over the world. You’ll be responsible for directing and coordinating the processes that transform materials into goods — an exciting field and a great career.
At Georgia Southern, the Manufacturing Engineering (MfgE) curriculum is hands-on and career- oriented. Students gain broad, practical knowledge in the major areas of Manufacturing Engineering. Manufacturing engineers work closely with mechanical, electrical and other engineers as a member of the design team to ensure manufacturability of the product while considering recycling and other aspects of the product life cycle. They also concentrate on the facilities, equipment, processes and methods necessary for the efficient and safe production of products in a globally competitive environment. Manufacturing engineers direct and coordinate the processes for transforming materials into products and guide the design, and conduct analysis and modification of product design to ensure the viability of the design for manufacturability.
As a student in the manufacturing engineering program, you will learn:
- Materials and Materials Processing
- Engineering Design for Manufacturability
- Lean and Quality Manufacturing
- Manufacturing Automation and Robotics
- Additive and Reverse Engineering
Students may choose on of five tracks in which to specialize:
- Materials Processing
- Occupational Health & Safety
- Lean and Six Sigma
Georgia Southern University is accepting students to the B.S. in Manufacturing Engineering Program. Transfer students from other Georgia Southern engineering programs should consult the department for details.
