Regardless of specialty, the engineering field provides individuals with job options at the associate, undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. levels. Although degree choices do influence base pay rates, they do not limit individuals in their career choices.
Graduates from any level can choose a career in any number of the general or specialized areas of manufacturing engineering. SUNY Jefferson is advancing women in Engineering. To learn more, check out the following video’.
Basic Degree Categories of Study
The field of manufacturing engineering and the categories of study within this field are broken down into three basic categories. These categories include product innovation and management, manufacturing operations management, and manufacturing systems and operations research.
Choosing which path of study to complete determines the level of engineering that a student will later pursue in his or her graduate work. It also breaks down engineering class options into more focused, specified areas of study that branch off from the more generalized course selections.
