Advanced Manufacturing and Manufacturing Design
I am currently a Manufacturing Engineer with a mechanical engineering heavy background.
I have been approached by different recruiters from Apple, at slightly different times, for "Advanced Manufacturing Engineer" and "Manufacturing Design Engineer". I believe former is for Mac while the latter is for soft goods.
Without getting too much into the context of the product, can someone from Apple explain to me the difference between the roles/teams?
On a side note, I am also really interested in Product Design Engineering. Is it significantly harder to get into PD than the teams mentioned above? Have you ever heard of anyone make the shift from manufacturing to PD?
