About Engineering (Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management) at The University of Hong Kong

The aim of the Master of Science in Engineering in Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management [MSc(Eng)(IELM)] curriculum is to offer advanced postgraduate education in industrial engineering and logistics management to graduates who hold managerial, supervisory or administrative positions in industrial and service sectors. The curriculum is designed to enable students to acquire state-of- the-art knowledge in operations management, logistics and supply-chain management, organisational theory and behaviour, financial management and engineering economics, quality management, digital enterprises and e-commerce, and other related topics. In line with economic transformation in Hong Kong and globally, the syllabus of the curriculum has been revised over the years to include a significant number of new courses related to new and exciting fields of logistics & supply-chain management and financial engineering & technology.

Industrial and business managers are the architects for the design of operating systems in organisations, both private and public, that are concerned with providing value to customers. Industrial managers are also responsible for effectively managing the operations of these organisations. The complexities of modern operations have increased greatly in both breadth and depth. An industrial / business manager now needs to be concerned with supply-chain issues in a global context. The management of technology and knowledge has also taken on a more significant role in the growth and profitability of an organisation and has become the most critical resources in gaining a competitive advantage.

Industrial / business managers are among the most important people in an organisation as they contribute to the long-term competitiveness of the organization in a direct, tangible way. While closer economic partnership with South China brings numerous business opportunities to Hong Kong, a company can prosper only if it has the right business vision and the necessary competence. The emphasis of the MSc(Eng) curriculum is on the strategic and logistical aspects that will help organisations achieve this vision and competence.
