At its simplest, manufacturing involves turning raw materials into finished products. It involves a wide range of industries and career opportunities – most obviously in engineering and technology. Production involves the technical and supervisory planning and control of scientific manufacturing plants, along with the design, development and implementation of systems and procedures of ensuring products are of specified quality. Manufacturing and production is an industry open to students from all academic levels. For most factory floor staff roles and lower-level technical roles, no minimum qualifications are required. However, those wishing to break into managerial careers might find a degree or HND of use, particularly in management studies or business.
