Prorgamme Aims and Learning Outcomes
Industrial and systems engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, physical science, and social science. This programme teaches students fundamental engineering concepts, information technology, design, management, communication skills, and the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design. It provides an understanding of the complex problems of modern industrial and business operations.
This programme is a subset of the 4-year BEng(Hons) in Industrial and Systems Engineering programme, and shares the characteristics and subjects relating to information systems, human factors and integrated product and process design. Graduates can apply for the department’s degree programmes with credit transfers.
In Hong Kong and around the world, a new generation of engineers is needed to meet the new era of digital technology. Graduates can typically find work as industrial engineers, systems engineers, project engineers, product development engineers, manufacturing engineers, logistics engineers, marketing engineers, and costing engineers.
Industrial and systems engineers are needed not only for production of goods and services, but also in transportation, hospitals, banks, IT companies and government departments.
