Industrial & Systems Engineering draws concepts from engineering, mathematics, economics, statistics and social sciences to derive efficiency and productivity improvement that is required in today’s increasingly competitive global market.
In meeting the demand for better quality products and services, and an increased pressure to reduce the cost of their delivery, decision-makers need highly rigorous skills to identify, analyse and design complex production systems. The Bachelor of Engineering (Industrial & Systems Engineering) programme equips students with a comprehensive and rigorous set of analytical and management skills required to meet these challenges.
Industrial & Systems Engineering professionals engineer processes and systems, and develop innovative solutions to improve quality and productivity, eliminating waste of time, money, materials and energy, as well as create new services. Industrial & Systems Engineering is unique among the engineering disciplines in that its techniques can be applied across a diverse range of industries, not only in manufacturing, but also in logistics and supply chain management, banking and finance, consultancy services, IT, transportation, utilities, entertainment, and health care.
