Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering (Hons)

[N/521/6/0145][MQA/PA 8501]

bach-manu-engProgramme Overview

The Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering (Hons) is being offered under the School of Engineering and Technology, and alongside other programmes to be commenced in February 2017 are Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons), Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic, Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Hons), Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Hons) and Bachelor of Food Technology (Hons). 

Manufacturing engineering is a discipline of engineering dealing with various manufacturing sciences and practices including the research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools, and equipment. The manufacturing engineer’s primary focus is to turn raw materials into a new or updated product in the most economic, efficient, and effective way possible.

Manufacturing engineers develop and create physical artifacts, production processes, and technology. It is a very broad area which includes the design and development of products. Manufacturing engineering is considered to be a sub discipline of industrial engineering/systems engineering and has very strong overlaps with mechanical engineering. Manufacturing engineers’ success or failure directly impacts the advancement of technology and the spread of innovation.

Besides offering these degree programmes, the school will also embark on Research and Development (R&D) activities, particularly in the infrastructures engineering, environmental and renewable energy, in line with the Sarawak Corridor for Renewable Energy (SCORE) focusing on development areas.  The R&D activities are also part of staff development plan and University-Industry Linkages.

Demand of Manufacturing Engineers

  • Industries that are in need of Manufacturing engineers span various industries including oil and gas industries, petrochemical industries, manufacturing industries, maintenance industries and marine engineering works industries.
  • In addition to the needs for Manufacturing engineers in the aforementioned industries, the implementation of Sarawak Corridor of Renewal Energy (SCORE) has spurred the demand for Manufacturing engineers. The current supplies of Manufacturing engineers are insufficient, and in some sectors there are high demands for graduates in this field.
  • The companies involved are the private agencies which have the interest and needs for engineers in oil and gas, manufacturing, services and maintenance, marine and others.
  • The programme is capable in producing graduates to meet the job market. The subjects offered are relevant and contributing to the strength of the programme, meeting the basic concepts and theories of related fields and developing in analytical skills.

Accreditation

Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering (Hons) has fulfilled the provisional requirement by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) which allows graduates to be recognised as practising engineers under the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

Duration of Study

4 Years

Careers in Manufacturing Engineering

As manufacturing require materials, these elements can be the supporting part for the manufacturing areas. As the programme would like to cover most of the industries covered in SCORE and the others, the phrase ‘any related industries’ is added so as to capture the industry segment as a whole.  Thus, the followings are the specialization:

  • Marine Engineering
  • Aluminium Industry
  • Glass Industry
  • Oil Based Industry
  • Steel Industry
  • Palm Oil Industry
  • any related industries
