Program Mission

Prepare graduates to be successful as technicians and engineers embracing innovation and discovery and striving for life-long learning and professional development in the field of Industrial Engineering Technology.

Program Description

Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Technology provides an excellent broad based  education with multidisciplinary specializations to cater for the global UAE industry. Industrial engineers focus on the safety, efficiency and productivity at a manufacturing plant or business. They come up with ways to improve procedures and help establish standards for production and procedure. The HCT Industrial Engineering Technology program aims to produce high-quality engineers with qualities of productivity, timeliness, dedication, and competence in the workplace. Graduates are expected to have the ability to work logically, accurately and efficiently; to gather and use information effectively; and to continue enhancing their careers through lifelong learning. Moreover, the program is designed to prepare interested students for graduate studies in Industrial Engineering Technology and other areas of professional practice. To this end, Industrial Engineering Technology students are trained to support the analysis, design, development and improvement of manufacturing and service systems from quality, productivity, financial and safety perspectives.

The Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Technology curriculum stresses the effective use of technology, information resources and engineering tools; students are trained to use state of the art software packages necessary to facilitate their efforts to optimize, statistically analyze and simulate existing systems, and to test and validate potential gains attainable from improving the system. In addition, the program instills leadership qualities based on moral and ethical principles coupled with sound and rational judgment.

Students are eligible for a one year Work Experiential Learning experience during their study.

Program Goals

  1. Integrate their attained knowledge and skills with their job expertise to identify and solve problems, and to optimize the interactions among elements of the systems within their area of practice to enhance safety, quality and productivity.
  2. Practice their roles in serving their organizations and community with firm commitment to social values and professional ethics.
  3. Continue improve their personal and professional abilities through self and administrated learning and training related to their job functions for continual professional growth.
  4. Serve as future team leaders with effective professional communication and technical skills and contribute actively to achieving Abu Dhabi Vision 2030.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon graduation, a HCT graduate in Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Technology should demonstrate:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to Industrial Engineering Technology;

  2. An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the Industrial Engineering Technology;

  3. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

  4. An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes;

  5. An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.

  6. An ability to develop and evaluate a business plan to transform an engineering design (systems, products ,services and solutions) into a business opportunity utilizing entrepreneurial skills and knowledge
