Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes
Enterprises are organisations, industrial and commercial, that shape the modern economy. This programme aims at providing a body of knowledge, principles and disciplines that are related to the analysis, design, implementation and operation of the critical elements associated with the effective operation of modern enterprises. To be successful in today's highly competitive global business environment, an enterprise should be willing to undertake new ventures and be able to continuously optimise its operations.
This programme aims at turning out a new generation of professionals with the entrepreneurship skills and the capability of integrating and applying engineering, business management and information technology expertise to optimise the operations of modern information based enterprises and the workflows along the business value chains in which they operate.
Graduates from this course are capable of formulating problems, recognising the areas in an enterprise in which improvements are necessary, and devising and implementing strategies that are aimed at producing solutions for the enhancement of its business efficiencies and effectiveness. They will enable enterprises to deliver quality goods and services that meet or exceed customer demands in today’s modern business environment.
The programme curriculum is designed to suit students from Arts, Commerce and Science backgrounds. It provides a unique and integrative discipline of studies that aims at preparing graduates who are competent in Enterprise Engineering, Information Technology and Management. The curriculum also contains subjects such as "Entrepreneurship and Innovation" and "Integrative Studies in Enterprise Systems and Management", which are aimed at equipping students with the principles and hands-on experience needed to develop business plans in starting up new businesses. A competition is held each year in the ISE Department for the best business plan, with industrialists invited to join academic staff members on the judging panel.

Work-Integrated Education (WIE) has been incorporated into the course of studies to ensure that students gain real-life work experience that is relevant to their study disciplines, and to enhance their all-round development. Each student must attain a minimum of one WIE training credit, i.e. the completion of at least 2 weeks/80 hours of full-time training, or the equivalent, before graduation.
Summer placement opportunities may be provided to students to enable them to gain practical work experience.
Student Exchange Programme
Students also have the opportunity to participate in a student exchange programme with universities in countries such as the United States, Canada, Sweden and Finland for one semester.
The programme is dual accredited by the Chartered Management Institute. Students will automatically receive a second professional qualification upon successful completion of the programme.
Like business and management studies, Enterprise Engineering with Management provides graduates with generic principles and know-how that can be applied to enterprises and organisations in various sectors. A wide range of job opportunities suitable for our graduates are available in industry, business, services and the government sector. Most graduates rise up to managerial positions after some years of work experience.
