Mechanical Engineering (Production)

Production engineering is the science of creating safe and efficient processes for transforming raw materials into finished items. Production engineers work in a variety of fields and hold different titles, such as industrial engineer, production manager and production engineering assistant.

This Mechanical Engineering (Production) program is a 3 year KNEC course that aims to impact learners with technical hands-on knowledge in mechanical engineering with more emphasis on production engineering.

Mechanical production engineers are professionals trained in designing and manufacturing of industrial products as well as maintaining the plant and machine components.

The production engineering component emphasizes on operations and process management and industrial organization.

This course of Mechanical Production Engineering involves creating new designs, analyzing the quality of products, planning a product along with its management, i.e. deals with the sales of the product.

The main focus of the Mechanical Production Engineering course is to meet the requirements of the people and design the product accordingly. Mechanical Production Engineers work in all those industries that involve manufacturing activities. They are accountable for monitoring the product in the industry.

Career opportunities in diploma in mechanical engineering production is being employed as a mechanical engineer in a production.
