The study aims to design course description of the industrial work study subject to be consistent with the industrial 4.0. The questionnaire was used to collect data from the 3 sample groups, i.e. (1) 108 senior industrial engineering students who studied and trained in industrial work study subject, (2) 59 persons who worked in industrial engineering area, and (3) 22 lecturers who taught in industrial work study subject at the university. After that, the data were analyzed to find significance weight value of each sample by analytical hierarchy process (AHP), and applied quality function deployment (QFD) to design a new course description. The results was found that course description required to add content about study of motion and standard time of machines and robotics, automated production system analysis, analyzation of motion of machines and robotics, analyzation of man and machine balancing, use of computer for design and production problem solving, use of psychology in industrial work, simulation of industrial problems, and a case study of industry developed by industrial 4.0. The level of satisfaction of the new course description is higher than that in present. Institutions need to adjust their course descriptions to be up-to-date and consistent with the changes in the industrial 4.0 to enhance students' potential and skills. It is prepared to meet the needs of the labor market and industrial 4.0.
