Introduction

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering was founded in the 1950s. We are a dynamic and multi-disciplinary Department with a very strong background in applied research. Over the years, the profile of the Department has broadened in scope, and now covers both the industrial and service sectors.

 

We have a critical mass of academic staff members who are world-class researchers in the strategic research areas of the Department, and whose research activities are supported by state-of-the-art research facilities and centres. These include the State Key Laboratory of Ultra-precision Machining Technology, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Research Centre, the Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre, the Micro/Nano Fabrication Laboratory, the Ng Tat Lun Digital Factory and the Integrated Product Design Laboratory.

(Please visit our laboratories website: https://www.polyu.edu.hk/ise/)

 

The Department offers MPhil and PhD research degree programmes in various areas, as listed below. You are most welcome to approach the corresponding staff member for academic advice.
