The Industrial Engineering programme at Stellenbosch University is a research based programme, generally requiring full-time study and research over a period of typically 18-24 months (minimum residence period is 1 year). A research thesis is produced together with the successful completion of a series of four or five supplementary modules, depending on the students' undergraduate background and the study domain that they plan to pursue.
The objective of the compulsory modules is to secure a common foundation, to calibrate different backgrounds amongst students, and to facilitate the research project in general:
- 1. Advanced operations analysis and synthesis, delivered through Analytics and Synthesis, for both study domains irrespective of undergraduate background;
- 2. The ability to perform independent research taught through Research Methodology for both the M.Eng study domains irrespective of undergraduate background;
- 3. Commercial and/or financial reasoning capability delivered through Project Finances for Engineers for both M.Eng study domains if a student has a background in BEng other than Industrial Engineering;
- 4. Strategic technology and operations management and awareness of externalities delivered through Advanced Topics in Engineering Management for the Engineering Management M.Eng course; and
- 5. Professional Communication for everyone, which also includes to make students aware of the risks associated with plagiarism.
