Where will this take me?



As an industrial engineering student, you will have access to a vast range of opportunities to network with industry, develop your professional skills and connect with a dynamic cohort of students from around the world.

As an industrial engineer, you could work in a wide range of industries from manufacturing and processing to healthcare systems, banking and consulting.

Transferable skillset

You’ll gain a transferable skillset that will be highly valued in management consulting, finance, business analysis, project management and many other areas.


The Master of Industrial Engineering is a new course in 2021. Accreditation with EUR-ACE® (accrediting agency: ASIIN) and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia) will be sought in early 2023 or 2024 after at least five students have graduated from the course. Accreditation will be backdated to cover all students who entered the program from 2021. These dual accreditations give you the option to work as an engineer in Australia, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, US, and more.
