More about BENGSEM

培育工程專才 迎大數據挑戰

The Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (SEEM) offers a single major, the BEng in Systems Engineering and Management (BENG SEM). The BENG SEM major aims to nurture students' analytic skills in understanding, analysing, managing and improving modern enterprises and systems, grounded in engineering principles and scientific methods. The targets of management and improvement include the operations and processes of an enterprise, or its projects, products and services. An enterprise under consideration can be an engineering, business, government, or service-oriented organisation.

A BENG SEM student is trained to become an analytic and versatile engineering graduate with the right skill-sets to effect these changes in the world of modern enterprises, globalised production and boundary-less information flow.

A BENG SEM graduate

  • has good understanding of today’s science, engineering and technology;
  • is knowledgeable about a modern enterprise’s organisation and management;
  • uses systems concepts and tools to analyse process and operational problems in enterprises, and to improve processes and operations in enterprises; and
  • is equipped with analytic and quantitative skill sets to grapple with real world problems that are associated with massive amount of data and information in enterprises.

What You Will Be Studying

In addition to general education studies, language proficiency, university level mathematics, essential computer studies and fundamental engineering sciences, which are required for all engineering students, this major offers a common SEM curriculum and two optional streams.

Common Systems Engineering and Management curriculum (General Stream)
A common set of required and elective courses that equip students with the knowledge and skills to analyse and improve operations, processes, products and services in enterprises.

Optional Total Quality Engineering Stream (TQE)
A set of required and elective courses that equip students with analytical, technical and managerial knowledge in quality engineering and assurance systems and Total Quality Management.

Optional Data Analytics Stream (DA)
A set of required and elective courses that equip students with statistical and computing knowledge in Data Analytics and Data Science.
