Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme are essentially Mechanical Engineers but with specialisation in Industrial Engineering who can easily find job opportunities in various mechanical engineering sectors. Alternatively, they can also be known as Industrial Engineers depending on their job placements in industries they are in.

Technology and all other resources need to be managed in an integrated and efficient manner either to produce a product or a service. Industrial Engineering concentrates on assembly activities and those of improving the performance of an integrated system involving man, engineering and machine. This activity requires specific knowledge and expertise in physical, engineering and social sciences together with principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict and evaluate results that can be obtained from such system.

An Industrial Engineer focuses on work design, planning, management and control in industry. He/she is expected to possess sufficient background in mathematics and engineering principles complemented with knowledge in human factors related to psychology, sociology, physiology and others.

In order to complete the education in industrial engineering, the above aspects are further complemented with understanding of the organisational operations of industries, cost, quality and productivity which constitute the basis of any industrial activity. Industrial Engineering is wider than the conventional engineering and is interdisciplinary in nature and can be applied

Thus, the career in the field of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering is wide open covering all sectors in both the industrial sector (small, medium and large) and service sector (government, education, financial, etc.).
