The Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering aims to produce graduates that are flexibly equipped to work effectively within industrial teams or research and development groups, contributing knowledge and specialist skills, demonstrating an awareness of the context of work, and taking responsibility for personal and professional development. The programme further aims to enable students to demonstrate comprehensive understanding of subject matter in engineering and business and develop productive solutions for processes found in organisations and thereby enhancing the competitiveness of such organisations. This would enable graduates to apply knowledge of industrial management in planning and optimising business operations in various industries in the private and public sectors, such as manufacturing, mining, management consultancies, banking, healthcare, transport, and agriculture.
In addition to meeting the University’s General Admission Requirements as spelt out in the general rules, candidates must have at least 16 points on the Engineering Evaluation Scale in Mathematics and Physical Science, with a minimum 3 symbol in Mathematics and Physics or Physical Science. Only symbols on NSSC Higher level will be considered for Mathematics, Physics or Physical Science. A minimum of 21 points on the Engineering evaluation scale for any three other subjects using a combination of NSSCH and NSSCO. A minimum NSSC Ordinary level D symbol in English is required.
Candidates must have successfully completed the Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics programme offered at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) with at least 60 % in Introduction to Mathematics B (ITM402S), an average of 60 % in Introduction to Physics B (IPH402S), 60 % in Introduction to Chemistry B (ICH402S) and 60 % in English in Practice (EPR511S). However a score of 60 % in the above courses will not guarantee automatic entry into the programmes as selection will be based on merit. Holders of a National Diploma (ND) and/or B. Tech. degree in Mechanical Engineering obtained from the Polytechnic of Namibia/ Namibia University of Science and Technology is eligible for admission. Depending on the results of an evaluation of equivalence of their qualifications, holders of similar qualifications obtained elsewhere will be considered.
