The Manufacturing Systems Engineering (MSE) programme focuses on system-approach to manufacturing and designing/planning for future requirements. It emphasizes the relationships between product design requirements, manufacturing processes and systems, taking into account human, economics and environmental factors. At the end of the programme, students of MSE are expected to:
- Apply basic knowledge and skills in mathematics, science and engineering to solve problems in manufacturing processes and systems
- Design, plan and control, implement, analyze and improve manufacturing processes and systems with appropriate considerations to human, economics and environmental factors
- Apply computer and automation technologies to manufacturing processes and systems
- Acquire skills in technopreneurship, problem-solving, communication, leadership and teamwork
