Course Overview

Industrial Engineering is a flexible engineering area that helps company to save money and enhance efficiency. It is a multidisciplinary field related to the manufacturing, design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy.  

The programme concentrates on the practical application of technical knowledge (i.e. in mathematics, physics, engineering and social sciences) together with principles and methods of engineering analysis and design. It aims to produce graduates who can demonstrate capabilities to acquire and apply knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals, possess in-depth technical competence in the industrial engineering discipline to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution and possess the ability to utilise a systems approach to design an optimise system's performance.

Industrial engineers can involve themselves in designing, developing, testing and evaluating integrated systems for managing industrial production processes including human work factors, quality control, inventory control, logistics and material flows, cost analysis, and production coordination.
