Visit the official programme website for more information


Industrial engineers develop, design and refine systems and processes focused on improving quality and productivity. This includes systems and processes relating to people, money, information, equipment and energy.

Due to the nature of the work, industrial engineers have expertise in engineering and mathematics principles and methods, and in business fundamentals such as logistics and operations management.

They are also regarded for their strong interpersonal skills and their ability to work well with people to achieve optimised work processes and systems.

This Industrial Engineering program from Curtin University provides you with a combination of technical depth and business fundamentals.
