If you want to be a researcher in Manufacturing engineering, there are two options but both will start ideally with a phd degree. you should consider doing a phd in manufacturing engineering and only then you can be a research scholar in this field. This field involves manufacturing of any machines that the world requires. So it gives you a variety of options for you to choose the career of your choice. You can choose to work in
1. Automotive: that involves manufacturing auto mobiles like cars, vehicles and trucks. You can find employment with Ford, Hyundai, Suzuki, Chrysler and many more.
2. Mechanical engineering: where you can understand the mechanism of the body that is functioning . You can find employment with any company that involves in manufacturing machines, like washing machines, or any other electrical appliances.

As a researcher in manufacturing engineering, you have two work options.
