Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme are essentially Mechanical Engineers but with specialisation in Manufacturing Engineering who can easily find job opportunities in various sectors. Alternatively, they can also be known as Manufacturing Engineers depending on their job placements in industries they are in.

The programme is designed to fulfil the needs of the manufacturing sector in Malaysia which has grown continuously since 20 years ago. The country then was experiencing a transition from an economy based on agriculture to that based on manufacturing and thus required many Manufacturing Engineers. The Faculty of Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering has contributed immensely towards producing and the development of Manufacturing Engineers capable of satisfying the need of the manufacturing industry.

Generally, the career of a Manufacturing Engineer is focused towards improving the efficiency of manufacturing processes used and management of production system, equipment and human resources in manufacturing a particular product. Nowadays, the career opportunity for manufacturing engineers has increased rapidly in facing the challenges of globalisation, the national vision 2020 and various trade agreements such as AFTA. These challenges have further placed the manufacturing sector under pressure to ensure that product produced can compete internationally, are inexpensive and of good quality.

Hence, the role of Manufacturing Engineers is always relevant, and the faculty will always ensure that the Manufacturing Engineering graduates are equipped with up-to-date knowledge and tools to keep in phase with current development.

A wealth of career opportunity awaits the Manufacturing Engineering graduate can also find a career in the consulting, research and development sectors. The academic field is another opportunity for the Manufacturing Engineer to serve in universities and colleges throughout the nation in order to produce more highly qualified graduates especially in the area of advanced manufacturing.

The faculty will always ensure that the manufacturing engineering graduate is equipped with interdisciplinary knowledge in order to allow them to participate in various sectors of the industry.
