BEng in Manufacturing Engineering
International economic competition is fierce today. Manufacturers rely on trained, dedicated professionals to develop and implement the equipment and production methods required to keep ahead of their competitors.
Manufacturing Engineering integrates highly diverse and exciting technologies and disciplines, such as design, robotics, micro-electrochemical systems (MEMS), manufacturing systems and control, and green manufacturing, into a comprehensive educational programme. Manufacturing engineers are also involved with the production process, from product design through post-sale service. If a new product or system is needed, it is the manufacturing engineer who will work on the team to design and produce it efficiently, economically, safely, and in an environmentally benign manner. Consequently, there is high demand for manufacturing engineers in the Malawi industries and throughout the world.
Through the programme, the MIT aims at providing a training programme that provides opportunities for a graduate to become an expert on selecting the right materials, and know how to process them into usable products, understand how to control automated production systems with computers and utilize advanced technologies when appropriate.
The programme also aims to produce high calibre manufacturing engineers capable of playing leading roles in manufacturing industry, business, the professions and public service.
Graduates in manufacturing engineering will have a wide range of choice of careers in the manufacturing industry. They can be involved in process design, equipment design, management of manufacturing processes and any other related fields. There is no country without a manufacturing industry and as economies look to value addition, the demand for manufacturing engineers will be huge.
