INDUSTRIAL AND MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING (IME)

Since its inception in the early 1970’s, the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering program at AIT has committed to prepare qualified engineers with high-tech knowledge for supporting sustainable industrial development of the region. Starting as Systems Engineering in the early days and becoming Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering today, our focus has always been on responding to current needs and future trends for industry to be competitive, and we have achieved it through

  • A high quality graduate education program,
  • Teaching excellent through research activities,
  • Strong relationship with private and public sectors, and
  • Partnership with various manufacturing and service industries.

Programs

  • Doctoral degree program
  • Master’s degree program
  • Professional master’s degree program*
  • Diploma and certificate

* Three years experience is required.

The credit requirements of the regular and non-thesis professional master’s programs are 49 credits and 33 credits, respectively. The credit requirement of the doctoral degree is 84 credits of which 66 credits are for research dissertation. IME also offers diploma and certificate programs toward master’s degrees.

Preferred Background

For Master Program
Strong quantitative background; undergraduate degree in mechanical, production, industrial, electrical, electronics, or chemical engineering; other engineering fields; other applied sciences.

For Doctoral Program
One should have a good master’s degree in one of the above disciplines.
