Study Program

Industrial Engineering

Students of the degree course will graduate as industrial engineers. The approach of industrial engineers goes beyond the purely business, technical and engineering aspects: Technical expertise and economic judgment are combined to provide comprehensive solutions. The objective of the programme is to qualify the graduates for an application-oriented employment or for entrepreneurship in the field of Industrial Engineering, and for life-long learning.

Degree:

Bachelor of Science (BSc)

Duration:

8 semesters

Start:

Fall semester

The course qualifies students to work as industrial engineers, deployed in various areas of engineering and also in the wider business sector. The graduates understand the technical aspects of engineering as well as the effects of the technology on the environment; they are able to work together with engineers and scientists from various disciplines and, moreover, they ensure that such collaborations are successful. Furthermore, due to the special learning conditions at GMIT they are prepared to work in an international, professional environment.

  • The degree meets the standards of internationally recognised universities.
  • All courses are taught by Mongolian and international teaching staff in English.
  • Courses are strongly practise-oriented, with on-the-job learning phases spent in Mongolian and international companies (the B.Sc. curriculum includes a minimum of 120 days of practical learning).
  • Lectures are given by practicing experts.
  • GMIT cooperates with leading German universities. This offers the possibility to study in Germany during studying at GMIT, e.g. in the framework of summer schools. Furthermore, study exchanges for one or two semesters are possible.
  • Key competences are taught in special workshops, for example project management, and presentation and communication skills.
  • Students are introduced to sociological questions related to the resources and business sectors, either as part of the degree courses as through extra-curricular activities.
  • For employers, the profile of graduates is particularly attractive, due to their practical and international experiences.

The B.Sc. Industriall Engineering degree course is intended to impart essential knowledge of natural sciences, engineering and business subjects. An interest in science, technology and busines administration is therefore a prerequisite for the course.

The bachelor course is oriented towards basic knowledge and methods, but it also gives students their first introduction to more advanced technical subject matter. The programme offers graduates a solid grounding for a successful professional career, since it imparts principles, concepts and methods that are well founded in theory. These will endure for the long term, beyond current sector trends, and provide students with the expertise to assimilate new knowledge at any time.

The studies encompass a wide variety of different disciplines, e.g. biology, geography, engineering and management. Using such collaborations, solutions are developed for today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges. Furthermore, these collaborations largely require interdisciplinary cooperation.

In addition to this, graduates are able to handle tasks in differing technical, economic and social conditions. They possess the language skills with which they need to communicate their technical subject matter in an international, professional environment. The new forms of teaching and experiential learning, together with the modules for instilling key competences parallel to the technical studies, all combine to provide a targeted preparation for a professional working-life.

The graduates of the first cycle degree course “Industrial Engineering” will be able to:

  • Apply mathematical, scientific, engineering and economic principles for solving industrial engineering problems.
  • Recognize and analyse complex problems and develop integrated engineering and economic solutions to problems.
  • Use their industrial engineering knowledge to assess and to apply in the design, development, production, distribution and in business; and also consult scientific methods in order to foster the progress of both society and industrial engineering.
  • Apply information science for solving industrial engineering problems.
  • Work in international teams in order to solve extensive and interdisciplinary problems.
  • Recognize the consequences of engineering activities in order to act responsibly within and for society, the economy, and the environment.
