    Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that integrates exciting and diverse disciplines such as design, robotics, systems engineering, automation, mechatronics, sustainable engineering, manufacturing, operations management etc.

    The Department of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering was first established in 1976 as the Department of Production Engineering. Up to now, over 1000 graduates have graduated with specialization in Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering. The department aims to develop the profile of the graduate in two major complementary areas:

    (1) Technological mastery highlighting the skills of harnessing technological resources at all levels, with greater emphasis on activities at the shop floor level with a clear awareness of the strategic management implications;

    (2) Mastery of the management of technological resources with a greater emphasis on design and operation of manufacturing systems, working in close liaison with strategic management and enterprise management with a good knowledge of manufacturing technology.

    The student is free to make his/her choice by selecting the optional courses appropriately. The core subjects are designed to suit both categories.
