During my course of work, I am also actively involved in new prototype development. By having a deeper understanding on how the integrated systems of processes, systems, resources and information works, I will be able to deal with new product development efficiently as well as be able to make timely and informed decisions. This is important towards building a lean manufacturing environment.
Industrial and System Engineering also gives me to opportunity to practise in a variety of businesses. The knowledge and exposure that I will gain in industrial and system engineering not only enable me to contribute tremendously in my current semiconductor working environment but also enable me to embark on a different working field such as health system management or supply chain management. Besides being able to upgrade my skills, I am also able to increase my marketability in the competitive job market. Industrial engineering is more related to management than most other engineering disciplines. I hope that I will be able to design solutions to improve the performance of complex systems make up of resources, technology and information and contribute to making a productive nation.
