This paper outlines briefly the history of manufacturing engineering and discusses the problems associated with meeting the technical manpower requirements associated with large scale engineering development. The major thesis presented is that the escalation of technology associated with major engineering projects undertaken in manufacturing has brought about the need for engineering talent from many disciplines and that a major effort in the management of the large number of professional technical personnel in large manufacturing enterprise is required.
It is suggested that recruiting and preparing of professional engineering manpower required in manufacturing should be a joint effort between the manufacturing industry and the university at all organizational levels and at all stages of professional career development.
