    Abstract

    Abstract: A comprehensive study was conducted investigating the manufacturingengineering education across several European countries, with the main objective togather information about the syllabi of both mechanical as well as industrial engineeringcourses at the undergraduate level (first degree courses) offered by the institutesconcerned, and to determine the manufacturing-related content of these courses.The research revealed that on a Subject Group basis both the maximum (taking intoaccount all optional modules the students can take) and the minimum amount ofmanufacturing education provision (only considering the compulsory modules) for aparticular course varies quite considerably between the institutes concerned. This mightpose as a stumbling block to students’ mobility/interchangeability. The research alsorevealed a correlation between the extents of teaching and the research interests.In addition, it was observed that design- and management-related subject areas areconsidered ‘key’ subject areas by many of the institutions involved.
