Department of Systems Engineering

The Department of Systems Engineering (SYE) offers a single major, the BEng in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering. This major aims to develop the abilities of our students in integrating intelligent manufacturing systems with:

  1. Industrial Internet of Things,
  2. Automation and Robotics,
  3. Management Analytics,
  4. Artificial Intelligence, and
  5. Industrial Big Data

As an outcome, our graduates will possess the practical skills in engineering sciences, design innovations, automation and data analytics, so that:

  1. Our graduates can apply these skills to improve and innovate various operations of modern manufacturing enterprises in the Industry 4.0 setting;
  2. Our graduates can also apply these skills to service industries and commercial enterprises, in automating their various business operations, to push for ever higher efficiency.

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.
