This major sits within the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree.

Industrial and systems engineers design, install and improve systems that integrate people, materials, equipment, energy, information and finance – all while ensuring that quality, safety, environment and human needs are met. They utilise engineering management techniques with the principles and methods of engineering design and analysis to evaluate and predict the results of change.

Industrial and systems engineers are also key members of teams responsible for timing, costing, layouts, process flows, equipment requirements, plant operations and whole systems – including manufacturing facilities, supply chains, transportation networks and warehouses.

This engineering major incorporates units from engineering, sustainability, management and industrial mathematics.

You will gain specialised theoretical knowledge and practical foundations in engineering design, manufacturing, quality, systems engineering, control, operations research, practice and management, modelling, simulation and optimisation of industrial processes.

Graduates are frontline engineers for the rapid expansion from basic time and motion analysis to digitised automation of operations, maintenance, production monitoring, driverless trucks and unmanned aerial vehicles.
