Mode of Study
This major aims to produce graduates who will
- be engineers and managers in globalized manufacturing and engineering enterprises, or other relevant career paths, including industry, academe, government, and non-governmental organizations.
- be able to undertake and manage challenging projects that require knowledge of the fundamentals, manufacturing technologies and systems, information technologies and management in manufacturing.
- be able to meet the needs of analysis, design, and development in industry in the context of manufacturing systems engineering and other closely related engineering disciplines.
- be able to effectively identify new problems and develop innovative solutions, including new manufacturing and fabrication technologies.
- be innovators and leaders who have a positive economic and social impact on their communities, the nation, and society as a whole.
- be adaptive learners who actively pursue life-long learning and continue to grow professionally by obtaining professional registration or certification, or by earning post-graduate degrees.
Upon successful completion of this Major, students should be able to:
Organize and utilize information for the interactions between diverse manufacturing resources to meet specified manufacturing objectives;
Conceptualize, analyze, select and apply mechanical entities and manufacturing processes in the manufacture of discrete products;
Plan the implementation and utilization of electrical/electronic devices, computer hardware and software and communication and control systems for the automation of manufacturing and engineering enterprises;
Identify and solve system-level issues concerning manufacturing productivity, quality and competitiveness with emphasis on Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems;
Develop and implement effective procedures to manage manufacturing activities in industries;
Develop and implement efficient “process engineering” and innovative “design for manufacture” solutions in discrete products manufacturing;
Demonstrate the creativity, analytical and problem solving skills in the context of manufacturing engineering; and
Meet the core competency required for corporate membership of professional bodies, such as the Hong Kong Institute of Engineers (HKIE).
