The Manufacturing Engineering (MFGE) program has two distinct options: Manufacturing Systems and Product Development. Both options within MFGE lay the foundation for being a successful engineer.
The upper division courses of the Oregon State University MFGE education focuses on strengthening and extending discipline-specific knowledge and experience. Core coursework in MFGE includes manufacturing materials and processes, production engineering, production planning and control, computer aided design and manufacturing, design of mechanical devises and work systems, lean manufacturing systems engineering, thermal–fluid sciences, design on experiments, simulation, and statistical quality control.
MfgE - Manufacturing Systems Option
The MfgE - Manufacturing Systems Option is closely aligned with our Industrial Engineering (IE) program. This option provides a foundation in manufacturing principles with a focus on systematic manufacturing processes. Topics in this option include facility layout design, work systems engineering and statistical quality control. Students in this option can opt to take more courses to earn a dual major in MfgE and IE.
MfgE - Product Development Option
The MfgE - Product Development Option is closely aligned with our Mechanical Engineering (ME) program. This option provides a foundation in manufacturing principles with a focus on the development of new products and equipment. Topics in this option include thermodynamics, mechanical component design and mechanics of materials. Students in this option can opt to take more courses to earn a dual major in MfgE and ME.
