Program Description

Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Technology provides an excellent broad based  education with multidisciplinary specializations to cater for the global UAE industry. Industrial engineers focus on the safety, efficiency and productivity at a manufacturing plant or business. They come up with ways to improve procedures and help establish standards for production and procedure. The HCT Industrial Engineering Technology program aims to produce high-quality engineers with qualities of productivity, timeliness, dedication, and competence in the workplace. Graduates are expected to have the ability to work logically, accurately and efÞciently; to gather and use information effectively; and to continue enhancing their careers through lifelong learning. Moreover, the program is designed to prepare interested students for graduate studies in Industrial Engineering Technology and other areas of professional practice. To this end, Industrial Engineering Technology students are trained to support the analysis, design, development and improvement of manufacturing and service systems from quality, productivity, Þnancial and safety perspectives.

The Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Technology curriculum stresses the effective use of technology, information resources and engineering tools; students are trained to use state of the art software packages necessary to facilitate their efforts to optimize, statistically analyze and simulate existing systems, and to test and validate potential gains attainable from improving the system. In addition, the program instills leadership qualities based on moral and ethical principles coupled with sound and rational judgment.

Students are eligible for a one year Work Experiential Learning experience during their study.
