ME Manufacturing Engineering

About the Department

Manufacturing engineering is a branch of professional engineering that shares many common concepts and ideas with other fields of engineering such as mechanical, chemical, electrical, and industrial engineering. Manufacturing engineering requires the ability to plan the practices of manufacturing; to research and to develop tools, processes, machines and equipment; and to integrate the facilities and systems for producing quality products with the optimum expenditure of capital. The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing Engineering program equips the students with the capabilities to design and operate traditional and additive manufacturing, experiment with different materials, use robots, and manage production for automotive, aerospace, machinery, household products, and other manufacturing industries. 

The manufacturing engineer’s primary focus is to turn raw material into an updated or new product in the most effective, efficient & economic way possible. PG programme ME Manufacturing Engineering was started in the year of 2013 at KCE in order to provide the skill based education to our engineering aspirants.
