Welcome Message to Potential Students

I am very pleased that you have taken the time to visit our website; a warm welcome to you. Please spend a few minutes because here you may well find what you are looking for. We are not one of the more traditional engineering disciplines that you may be aware of, such as Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Civil and the like. We are more modern, although our history goes back quite some time. We are much broader in our scope and are a multi-disciplinary engineering department (which, if you are a school leaver and thinking about a career, can have very distinct advantages). In fact, Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) is well established in overseas universities, such as the Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Washington, the University of Florida, and the National University of Singapore. The main thrust of ISE is to help companies or organisations (industrial companies, banks, insurance companies, logistics companies, government departments, etc.) to provide their goods and services more efficiently. This will then mean that they provide better value for money which in itself improves our living standards. This may be by using modern technology, state of the art computer systems for planning, organising, and managing, or simply by thinking of new and better ideas. Whatever it is, you will find our academic programmes interesting, informative and valuable, and on completion you will be able to pursue a worthwhile and rewarding career in a very wide range of companies or organisations.

Come join us and when you graduate you can have a rewarding career and make a strong contribution to society.
