Minor in Manufacturing Technologies


The Minor in Manufacturing Technologies is mainly for non-manufacturing engineering students especially in business, science, law, and humanities. This minor focuses on the learning of knowledge-based manufacturing technologies in manufacturing/engineering services enterprises.

Aims of Minor

The aim of this minor is to develop adequate academic knowledge and skills in a number of knowledge-based manufacturing technologies that are necessary for graduates to be able to effectively work as a co-worker in the manufacturing/engineering services enterprises.

Intended Learning Outcomes of Minor (MINILOs)

Based on the actual combination of the courses taken, graduates will have attained these objectives:

  • Gain sufficient knowledge and skills in manufacturing technologies involved in a discrete products manufacturing/engineering services enterprises;
  • Effectively implement and utilize software towards the automation and computerization of "process engineering" and "design for manufacture" activities in engineering and servicing industries.

Minor Requirement (15 credit units)

  1. At least 15 credit units must be taken from the courses shown in the following table.
  2. Students should take three required courses MNE2016, MNE2110 and MNE3119 in addition to the course requirement mentioned in (1)*.
  3. A grade point of 1.7 or above for each of the courses is required for the award.
  4. A student who intends to take the minor should seek approval from his / her home academic unit and the minor-offering academic unit.
