Course Aims

The course aims to introduce the evolution of industrial engineering (IE) and modern management concepts and practices; and the enabling role they have played in the world’s industrial and economic development since the turn of the last century. Students will learn about the major gurus and milestones in the evolution of IE and management practices and how their creative and innovative thinking shaped the management of modern enterprises. In addition, students will be acquainted with the work and contributions of IE and management professionals in today’s organizations.

Many university students today, regardless of whether they come from social work, media studies, applied sciences, mathematics or engineering colleges, let alone those from business schools, aspire to a career in modern enterprises and eventually a position in management echelon. Yet, many youngsters are quite ignorant of how a modern enterprise functions and the role industrial engineering (IE) has played in the shaping of modern enterprise management. This GE course is suitable for students who want to find out how and why modern enterprises are managed the way they are.
