Department of Advanced Design and Systems Engineering

The Department of Advanced Design and Systems Engineering (ADSE) offers a single major, the BEng in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering. This major emphasizes the integration of artificial intelligence, computer modeling and optimization, industrial big data, Internet of Things, industrial engineering, automation and robotics in smart manufacturing and smart organisations, with particular emphasis on electronics and semiconductor manufacturing. This multi-disciplinary programme aims to produce graduates who are capable of using cutting-edge engineering knowledge, computational, experimental and analytical techniques to plan, design, implement and improve technology-based manufacturing and operations systems.

Our Target

The major aims to nurture students' cutting-edge engineering knowledge, computational, experimental and analytical techniques to plan, design, implement and improve technology-based manufacturing and operations systems. It emphasizes the technological, analytical and managerial skills of integrating different technologies in intelligent manufacturing systems.

BEng in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering students are trained to become analytical and versatile engineering graduates with the right skill-sets to adapt to the rapid technological advancements in the world of modern enterprises, intelligent production, and boundary-less information flow and integration.

BEng in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering graduates

  • have a good understanding of today’s science, engineering and technology;
  • are knowledgeable about the high-end technology and managerial skills of manufacturing system fitting the Industry 4.0;
  • use systems concepts and tools to analyse processes and operational problems in enterprises, and to improve processes, operations and qualities in enterprises; and
  • are equipped with analytic and quantitative skill sets to grapple with real-world problems that are associated with massive amounts of data and information in enterprises.

Entrance Requirements for Direct/Non-JUPAS Applicants

To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied a science- or mathematics-based subject at a high school or post-secondary institution.

Curriculum Structure

For details of the programme’s curriculum structure, please visit the ‘Undergraduate Catalogue(Note: The catalogue for the 2022 cohort is for reference only. The 2023 catalogue will be published around July 2023.)

What You Will Be Studying

The curriculum provides the students with systematic training in systems engineering, with a focus on advanced manufacturing and semiconductor manufacturing. Specifically, the GE and College required courses equip students with the necessary background in English, basic science and computer programming. The major core courses are divided into three blocks, namely, the Core Technology block, Integration Block and Application Block. The Core Technology Block includes the scientific principles, knowledge and application in disciplines of industrial system engineering, electronics and semiconductor, and advanced manufacturing technologies. The Integration Block emphasizes the integration of cutting-edge knowledge and up-to-date applications, particularly in intelligent manufacturing systems and Industry 4.0.  The Application Block provides practice opportunities and industrial experience to the students with the Engineering Workshop, Final-year project, Industrial attachment and Internship. The major electives offer an opportunity for students to broaden or deepen their knowledge in different disciplines of electronics, manufacturing technology, and industrial systems engineering.

Student Exchange/Internship

International Academic Exchange Programmes

For students to broaden their educational horizons, gain language experience and enhance their awareness of different cultures, the Department, College and University offer over 110 credit-bearing exchange programmes with various partner institutions around the world including universities in Australia, Canada, Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region.

Please visit the University's website and the Department's website for details of our outbound exchange programmes.


Industrial Placements
