The Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (SEEM) offers a single major, the BEng in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering. This major emphasizes the integration of intelligent manufacturing systems, modeling and optimization, artificial intelligence, industrial big data, industrial Internet of Things, automation and robotics, management analytics and advanced manufacturing technologies. 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.

What You Will Be Studying

The curriculum provides the students with systematic training in systems engineering, with a focus on intelligent 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 systems 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 data analytics, 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.
