What will I learn?

The aim of the Master of Science in Engineering in Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management [MSc(Eng) (IELM)] curriculum is to offer advanced postgraduate education in industrial engineering and logistics management to graduates who hold managerial, supervisory or administrative positions in industrial and service sectors. The curriculum is designed to enable students to acquire state-of- the-art knowledge in operations management, logistics and supply chain management, organisational management, financial management, digital enterprises and e-commerce, industrial data analytics and other related topics. In line with economic developments of Hong Kong, China and other parts of the world, the curriculum has been continuously updated and strengthened. Capstone learning experience is now emphasised in many courses; and new courses in logistics and supply chain management, financial engineering and industrial data analytics have been incorporated in the curriculum.

Industrial managers are the designers of operating systems of organisations that provide value to their customers. Also, they are the key professionals responsible for managing the operations of these organisations. Nowadays, the complexity of modern operations has greatly increased due to increased product/service customisation, business globalisation and technology advancement. An industrial manager now needs to be concerned with supply chain issues in a global context. Also, he/she must realise that technology and knowledge are the most critical resources for an organisation in gaining competitive advantage. His/her effective management of these resources is crucial to the growth and profitability of the organisation.

Industrial managers are among the most important people in an organisation as they contribute to the long-term competitiveness of the organisation in a direct, tangible way. While closer economic integration with South China will bring numerous business opportunities, a company can prosper only if it has the right business vision and the necessary competence. The emphasis of the MSc(Eng) curriculum is on the strategic and logistical aspects that will help organisations achieve this vision and competence.

Students are required to complete 48 credits plus a dissertation (equivalent to 24 credits) to graduate.
