Manufacturing Engineers

Work Environment

Manufacturing engineers generally work indoors at manufacturing facilities, factories, industrial plants, laboratories, or offices. They usually work full-time hours, which are 40 hours per week. They work longer hours, however, when project deadlines must be met. They travel at times to observe manufacturing processes, such as the parts assembly process at factories, so they can take notes and come up with engineering solutions to improve the processes. They spend a good part of their workday using computers to review data, create engineering designs, write reports, and other tasks.
