It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy and materials. It uses mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes. Its underlying concepts overlap considerably with certain business-oriented disciplines such as operations management, but the engineering side tends to emphasize extensive mathematical proficiency and usage of quantitative methods. Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering combines fields of Mathematics, Computing, Engineering and Social Sciences.

The programme seeks to provide broad skills and knowledge set necessary to provide practical solutions to industrial and technological problems across manufacturing, defence, logistics and services industries. You will study courses in statistics, operations research, human factors and ergonomics, production planning, manufacturing, engineering economics, quality control and simulation. The skillsets you will acquire will enhance the use of mathematical models and methods to identify and come up with solutions for a range of technical and scientific problems across a range of industries including manufacturing. Modules you will Study Include, Applied Thermodynamics, Building Services, Control Engineering, Design and Manufacturing systems, Electrical Power Systems Energy, Fluid Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, Heat Transfer, Maintenance Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanics, Strength of Materials. The programme prepares students to specialize and find careers in areas such as in power plants, maintenance of heavy duty equipment (e.g. in the mines, chemical, cement, pharmaceutical, food and allied industries), automotive industries, energy management and conservation, transportation, advanced materials design, alternative energy, oil and gas manufacturing, project management, consultancy, academia, public service, biotechnology and logistics and operations.
