Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes

Enterprises are industrial and commercial organisations that shape the modern economy. This programme aims to provide students with a body of knowledge, principles, and skills that are related to the analysis, design, implementation, and operation of the critical elements associated with the effective operation of modern enterprises. To be successful in today’s highly competitive global business environment, an enterprise must be willing to undertake new activities and able to continuously optimise its operations.

This programme aims to generate a new tranche of professionals with the entrepreneurship skills and ability to integrate and apply engineering, business management, and information technology expertise to optimise the operations of modern information-based enterprises and workflows along the business value chains in which they operate.

Graduates of this programme are capable of formulating problems, recognising the areas in an enterprise that require improvement, and devising and implementing strategies to produce solutions that enhance business efficiency and effectiveness. They enable enterprises to deliver quality goods and services that meet or exceed customer demands in today’s modern business environment.

Programme Characteristics

The Curriculum

The programme curriculum is designed to suit students from arts, commerce, and science backgrounds. It comprises a unique and integrated combination of subjects that nurtures graduates who are competent in enterprise engineering, information technology and management. The curriculum includes subjects such as Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Integrative Studies in Enterprise Systems and Management, which equip students with the principles and hands-on experience needed to develop plans for starting up new businesses. A competition is held each year in the ISE Department for the best business plan, with industry practitioners invited to join academic staff members on the judging panel.

Teaching Approach and Support Facilities

Our teaching follows a student-centred and problem-based learning approach and is conducted with the support of the most advanced facilities in the region, including the PolyU Microsoft Enterprise Systems Centre. The Centre has laboratories focusing on business automation, logistics and simulation, and knowledge solutions.

Work-Integrated Education

In addition to the normal curriculum, Work-Integrated Education (WIE) has been incorporated into the programme. The Department also makes every effort to secure industrial summer-training placements for students during their studies. These placements enable students to gain practical work experience.

Student Exchange to Overseas Universities

Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Student Exchange Programme, travelling to universities in North America, Europe and Asia, including the Chinese mainland. The typical duration of an exchange is one semester.
