EXPERIENCE FROM AIT

The master program in ISE of AIT trained and provided me all initial knowledge on Industrial Engineering that has been my expertise in research career. Before attending the ISE’s master program, I had no background on IE, but within only 2 years studying in AIT, I obtained all foundation for this field to work as an IE engineer or to follow academia career. Moreover, the research orientation of AIT’s master program also gave me the valued opportunity for research practice. These experiences have helped me a lot for PhD studying process in QUT later.

MESSAGE TO ISE STUDENTS

If you want to learn and dedicate your future career to industrial real world, ISE program is an excellent choice to achieve your goal.
