Departmental overview

About the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Pretoria is the oldest and biggest Industrial Engineering department in South Africa. The first Industrial Engineers graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1963. Up to 1974 Industrial Engineering was offered as a program in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In 1975 the Department of Industrial Engineering was established as an independent academic department.

Over the past thirty plus years the Department

  • Produced university educated Industrial Engineers capable of serving a diverse range of manufacturing and service organisations in the pursuit of optimum productivity in the widest sense of the word.
  • Reliably continued to serve the University of Pretoria in an economically viable fashion.
  • Supported the School of Engineering by training other branches of Engineering in the probabilistic approach to problem solving.
  • Underwrote the mission of the Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering in supporting and regulating the profession of Industrial Engineering.
  • Created and supported Industrial Engineering research at undergraduate and postgraduate level in developing the field of study.
  • Served as the driving force of the South African Journal of Industrial Engineering.

Through the Washington Accord, the equivalence of accredited degree programmes in signatory countries is acknowledged as having met the academic requirements for entry into the practice of engineering and subsequent registration as a professional engineer. At present the signatory countries are Australia, Canada, Ireland, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States.

Industrial Engineering at Stellenbosch University

Posted by Lynette Pieterse on Tuesday, 10 March 2015 15:47

 

Departmental overview

The industrial engineer essentially creates better manufacturing and service systems. Industrial engineering is therefore an interdisciplinary field of study in which training in several applied sciences such as mechanical and mechatronic, electrical and electronic engineering, together with economic management, natural sciences, information technology and information science are combined as a unit for the design of various operational systems.

The industrial engineer’s daily task involves a great variety of creative activities, especially in modern manufacturing and service industries. The work covers a wide spectrum. It starts 6 at the design stage, and moves on to the manufacturing or delivering stages where attention is given to planning, efficiency and productivity and concludes with marketing.

The main options of industrial engineering are manufacturing technology and operational systems design. Among them, however, are important facets such as quality assurance, robotics, engineering economics, operations research, industrial ergonomics and information technology that are extremely important in the modern industrial and service environments.

Industrial Engineering Department Overview       

The Industrial Engineering degree programme at the University of the Witwatersrand falls in the School that offersMechanical,Industrial andAeronauticalEngineering.

First- and second-year curricula in the School are common for the three degree programmes offered (Mechanical, Industrial, and Aeronautical Engineering); students may therefore transfer between these programmes at any time up to the beginning of the third year of study.

Students from all other Engineering Schools in the Faculty (Chemical and Metallurgical, Civil and Environmental, Electrical and Information, Mining) having completed the second year of study, also satisfy the criteria for entry into the Industrial Engineering degree programme, and may hence transfer at third year level.

Entrance criteria to academic programmes

Entry to the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering is determined by a points system based on performance in the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination. The likely acceptance level is 36 points and above. This is the minimum rating for an application to be considered.  Also, only those candidates that have passed English as the Language of Learning and Teaching (LOLT), Home Language or 1st Additional language with an NSC level 4 scale of achievement (50 - 59%) or higher will be considered. Similarly, only those candidates that have passed both Mathematics and Physical Science with an NSC level 5 scale of achievement (60 - 69%) or higher will be considered. Maths Literacy candidates are not eligible to study in the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering.

Please refer to the School website for further information http://www.wits.ac.za/academic/ebe/mecheng/undergraduate/5180/general_information.html
