Introduction

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering was founded in the 1950s. We are a dynamic and multi-disciplinary Department with a very strong background in applied research. Over the years, the profile of the Department has broadened in scope, and now covers both the industrial and service sectors.

We have a critical mass of academic staff members who are world-class researchers in the strategic research areas of the Department, and whose research activities are supported by state-of-the-art research facilities and centres. These include the State Key Laboratory of Ultra-precision Machining Technology, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Research Centre, the Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre, the Micro/Nano Fabrication Laboratory, the Ng Tat Lun Digital Factory and the Integrated Product Design Laboratory.

Please visit our website for more information about our research facilities.

The Department offers MPhil and PhD research degree programmes in various areas, as listed below. You are most welcome to approach the corresponding staff member for academic advice. To discuss the possibility of pursuing a research topic not covered in the list, please contact the Departmental Research Committee Chairman, Prof. Xiaowen Fu at (852) 2766 6329; email: xiaowen.fu@polyu.edu.hk.
