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.
The Bachelor of Engineering: Industrial Engineering prepares industrial experts to conduct comprehensive research, evaluate
findings/discussions in literature, analyse and argue from evidence, engage in rigorous intellectual analysis, and contribute to
the advancement of knowledge in the field. Overall, this programme is believed to produce graduates who are able to make a
contribution to industry, the community and the society as a whole.
The Bachelor of Engineering: Industrial Engineering is designed to enable the graduates to register as Engineer‐in‐Training with
the Engineering Council of Namibia (ECN) pending the fulfilment of post qualification requirements. The programme outcomes
reflect the required levels of competence as defined by the ECN, while the programme has also been designed to meet
accreditation requirements of the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), and the Accreditation Board for Engineering and
Technology (ABET) of the United States of America.
In addition to meeting the University’s General Admission Requirements as spelt out in the General Information and Regulations
Yearbook – Part 1, candidates must have at least 37 points in five subjects on the University’s Engineering Evaluation Scale, with
a) 3 symbol in Mathematics and Physical Science at Grade 12 NSSC Higher level, “D’ symbol in English at NSSC Ordinary level
and any other two subjects using a combination of both NSSCH and NSSCO (out‐phasing school curriculum);
b) “D” symbol in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry at Advanced Subsidiary level, “D” symbol in English at NSSC Ordinary
level and any other one subject at NSSCAS or NSSCO (phasing‐in school curriculum).
Candidates must have successfully completed the Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (InSTEM)
studies programme offered at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) with at least a combined average score
of 60% for the “A” and “B” parts of the courses: Introduction to Mathematics, Introduction to Physics and Introduction to
Chemistry but with a score not lower than 55% in each. However, a combined average score of 60% in the above InSTEM courses
will not guarantee automatic entry into any of the mainstream programmes as the final selection will be based on merit and the
number of places available.
Students with foreign qualifications that are different from the National Qualifications Framework in Namibia or the SADC
Qualifications Framework will be assessed by member(s) of the prospective Department on a case‐by‐case basis in accordance
with the University’s 2020 revised Engineering Evaluation Scale.
Industrial managers in private and public sectors such as manufacturing, mining, consultations, banking, healthcare, transport and agriculture.
