  • Bachelors of Engineering in Industrial Systems

    Caribbean Maritime University

    September 2014 - September 2018

    Industrial Systems Engineering deals with the optimization of complex processes. It focuses on
    design, development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems in a
    global industrial context.
    This four year bachelors degree programme was developed to satisfy the needs of local and global
    industries. The first two years of this programme provides the requirements for the Associate of
    Applied Sciences Degree in Industrial Systems Operations and Maintenance (ADISOM) and the
    latter two years culminate into the Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Systems Degree.The intent
    of the programme is to develop in the individual candidate the knowledge, skills and attitudes
    necessary to function at the supervisory and management level within complex and rapidly
    changing engineering environment. This programme is designed to take advantage of computeraided engineering tools to educate a multi-disciplinary engineer. Candidates are prepared as critical
    thinkers who are able to analyse and propose novel solutions to problems.
