Engineering Division

Manufacturing engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection and maintenance.

Their work is more practically oriented than that of scientists and engineers. Many engineering technicians assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control – inspecting products and processes, conducting tests or collecting data. In manufacturing, they may assist in product design and development, process design or production.

Manufacturing engineering technicians study the efficient use of personnel, materials and machines in factories, stores, repair shops and offices. They prepare layouts of machinery and equipment, plan the flow of work, make statistical studies and analyze production costs. They may work with computer numerically controlled systems in industries like plastics and metalworking.

Manufacturing engineering technicians help engineers design, develop, test and manufacture industrial machinery, mechanical parts and other equipment. They make sketches and rough layouts, record data, make computations, analyze results and write reports. When planning production, mechanical engineering technicians prepare layouts and drawings of the assembly process and of parts to be manufactured. They estimate labor costs, equipment life and plant space. Some test and inspect machines and equipment in manufacturing departments or work with engineers to eliminate production problems.
