Future Intelligent Engineering Entrepreneur 明日智能工程企業家

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.

What You Will Be Studying

Our curriculum provides the students with systematic training in engineering sciences, design innovations, automation and data analytics, with a focus on intelligent manufacturing. Specifically:

  1. The General Education and College required courses equip students with the necessary background in English, basic sciences and computer programming.
  2. The major core courses are divided into three blocks, namely, the Core Technology Block, Integration Block and Application Block
    1. The Core Technology Block includes the scientific principles and applications in industrial engineering and management science, electronics and semiconductor, and advanced manufacturing technologies.
    2. The Integration Block emphasizes the integration of cutting-edge knowledge and applications, particularly in data analytics, intelligent manufacturing systems, automation and robotics, Internet-of-Things, and Industry 4.0.
    3. The Application Block provides practical opportunities and industrial experience to the students with the Engineering Workshop, Final-Year Project, Industrial Attachment and Internship.
  3. Our curriculum also offers elective courses for students with choices to broaden/deepen their knowledge in areas such as electronics, manufacturing technology, and industrial systems engineering.
