About Study Program
Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the optimization of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes.
An industrial engineer works to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, man-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity.
To be a leading Industrial Engineering study program in generating superior human resources and to become part of the international community developing the system technology of products and services in 2020.
- To deliver education and learning activities to generate human resources in industrial engineering with international benchmarks;
- To conduct research and technology development in industrial engineering partnering with industry and other academic institutions;
- To perform community service activities in the field of industrial engineering; and
- To produce human resources that have ethical values that are noble and have the ability to implement science and knowledge for the benefit of societies.

Why in SGU
SWISS GERMAN UNIVERSITY (SGU) was established in 2000. Dedicated to delivering quality education in line with international standards, SGU is established as an international institution with a long-term commitment in Indonesia. SGU aims to develop skilled professionals to fulfil the need for qualified graduates in order to strengthen links between different cultures. SGU offers courses which combine both theoretical and practical training through the internship.
The Industrial Engineering program at Swiss German University has been offered since August 2006. It offers a full degree program in Industrial Engineering. The design (course structure and content) of the Industrial Engineering program incorporates several approaches from existing departments, such as mechatronics engineering, business administration, information technology and communications at Swiss German University. By learning at SGU, the graduates have the capability to handle production/factory automation and deal with industrial management activities, such as optimization, job design, production control, cost analyst and use information technology tools and methodology to analyse and solve related industrial management problems.
To get a bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering of SGU, the students must complete 144 SKS in at least 8 semesters of undergraduate-level coursework. The students will have to complete internship program in Indonesia in the third semester and internship program in Germany in the sixth semester (terms and conditions are applied).
Thesis project has to be completed in at least one semester. The thesis must be satisfactorily defended at an oral examination that will be held by involving Professor from the sister University as one of the examiners. A portion of the research required may be performed in off-campus facilities including by involving companies or industries, local or overseas.
Available laboratories in Industrial Engineering of SGU are:
- Science (Physics) Lab.
- Electronics Lab.
- Automation & PLC Lab.
- Human Factor and Work System Engineering Lab.
- Industrial Ergonomic
- Lean Operations
- Industrial System Engineering Lab.
- Industrial Engineering System Design
- Enterprise Information System
- System Modeling and Simulation
- Operational Research
Fields of Interest of Industrial Engineering – SGU
Coordinating and controlling the processes to ensure the required level. Courses in production management are production planning, project management, inventory control, facilities planning and design, and quality control.
Nowadays, Lean manufacturing methodology has become a key component of successful production systems. Applying principles of lean production in manufacturing and services could increase the performance of the production and service systems.
Manufacturing Systems deal with structure and operation of machines, individuals, tools, materials and information to produce value-added of physical products. Material processing and fabrication, material handling, robotics, automated measurement, and computer-aided manufacturing are counted in.
System Analysis/ Operations
Mathematical and statistical modelling of systems and processes is very useful to plan, design, improve, optimize, and control systems.
Human Factors (Ergonomics)
Ergonomics analyze the human performance, work measurement, workplace design, and human-machine systems.
The network of all the persons, organizations, resources, activities and technology required to deliver products or services. Tools for the effective design and management of supply chain systems, also logistics strategies, network design, and supply chain integration are included.
Graduates of Industrial Engineering are able to pursue careers as production engineers, plant managers, supply chain managers and planners, operation analysts, product developers, quality engineers, director of purchasing, process improvement consultants, information system analysts, etc. Industrial engineers are highly qualified to work as employees and as entrepreneurs. Industrial engineers are employed in a broad variety of organizations, including manufacturing industries, utilities, transportation, healthcare systems, financial institutions, and all levels of government agencies.
