  • Program objectives

 The MISE program objectives define the ability of the program graduates in long term as below

  1. Be practicing engineers in the field of production and services, who are able to

(i) Design or redesign industrial systems

Create new design for industrial systems in production and service from small to medium size. For some especial cases, new design for large systems will also be considered

Analyze and research existing systems of production and service to see whether it needs redesigning or not for increasing productive and efficiency.

(ii) Operate and manage industrial systems

Operate effectively industrial systems in production and services by efficiency combination all system’s resources (people, finance, machines, ect.)

(iii) Improve the existing industrial systems

Detect, simulate, and get result to determine optimization index for new productive and services. Propose necessary change to improve existing systems.

(iv) Support for wise decision making

Analyze, evaluate, and simulate managing models to give alterative solution as single-criteria and multi-criteria for supporting managers in making decision

  1. Engage in lifelong learning such as higher level of graduate study and research
  2. Demonstrate professional success as evidenced by, among others, increased job responsibilities and leadership role at the place of employment and in greater society
  3. Fulfill the needs of community and industrial sector of Vietnam in solving technical and management problems using industrial and systems engineering principles, tools and techniques.
