Programme: Industrial Engineering Technology
Industrial Engineers are involved in planning for the processes of storage, movement of materials, and layout of factories. To ensure a co-ordinated work flow and optimal productivity, they organize and manage the relationship between other planners, plan operators and the plant.
Industrial Engineers design and implement systems within organisations to maximize production. They work in conjunction with other engineers to put the theory of mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering into practice.
The Department of Industrial Engineering Technology industry relationships provides a platform for work integrated learning opportunities and stakeholder engagement to ensure the production of skilled graduates who are able to think creatively in a range of environments. The Department is continuously engaged with industry to develop new interventions to address the shortage of process engineering skills, particularly within the service sector.
