The Master of Industrial Engineering is designed to have 240 credits at NQF Level 9. The programme is designed to produce graduates who can evaluate processes in complex systems (organisations) by competitive variables using the tools and techniques of Industrial Engineering, Business and Economics so as to design new or improved processes. They will demonstrate capacity for self-directed study, working independently to assemble knowledge in the forefront of fields in Industrial Engineering and research them, using the scientific method, in an industrial situation. The programme targets engineers working across the whole spectrum of industry. The programme will be a combination of coursework and a thesis.
Graduates of this programme will be able to find employment in industry (e.g. mining, manufacturing, service, transpor, and construction) in positions such as Operations Managers/Consultants/Researchers, Project Managers, Quality Assurance Managers, Supply Chain Managers, Productivity Analysts, etc. and be in a position to start or expand their own businesses.
Exit Programme Outcomes (Qualification Outcomes)
Upon completing the Master of Industrial Engineering, students will be able to:
• evaluate processes in complex systems (comprising labour, material and capital) by competitive variables (including productivity, quality, reliability, speed, flexibility, cost and profit) using the tools and techniques of Industrial Engineering;
• design new or improved processes for complex systems by one or more of the competitive variables; i.e. they will creatively solve complex problems in the field of Industrial Engineering to improve organisational performance;
• evaluate information (literature) critically in new and emerging fields impacting the development, improvement and/or operation of processes in complex systems;
• design models to fit particular industries by evaluating information and appraising the degree to which the models fit the industry;
• work in goal-oriented self-directed ways;
• plan and carry out a substantial piece of original research.
