Why Major in Manufacturing Engineering Technology?

Did you used to drive your parents up the wall by taking things apart 'just to see how they were put together'? (Or do you still do this?) If so, Manufacturing Engineering Technology may be the program for you! Simply put, manufacturing engineers figure out how to make products - anything from tools to toys, cars to consumer goods, electronics to earthmovers.

Good manufacturing engineers can determine how to make their company's products better, faster, safer and less expensive than competitors can. These abilities are always in demand, and the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program at Ferris State University gives you the skills to command an excellent starting salary. You'll also get to work with state-of-the-art computers and equipment while you're here, plus get more valuable team and project experience than almost anywhere else.
