Industrial Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

The goals of the program in Industrial Engineering are to educate our students for leadership positions in a broad spectrum of employment including manufacturing, supply chain management, and logistics, health care, banking, information management, and related disciplines. 

The program of Industrial Engineering offers the B.S. in Industrial Engineering to prepare students for a broad range of employment opportunities that include operations management, manufacturing, and healthcare, and to produce graduates who will lead their organizations to competitive advantage by applying the tools and techniques of industrial engineering. We believe that exposing students to diverse industries in our educational program will enhance their professional skills.

Program Educational Objectives

To support the vision of the program we have defined three high-level objectives we expect students to achieve three to five years following graduation:

Building on skills developed in the academic program, and extended by experience and personal self-improvement, the graduates of our program have the ability to:

  1. Apply the tools and techniques of industrial engineering to make decisions which add value to their organization,
  2. Identify opportunities and formulate solutions which integrate technological and human systems,
  3. Provide leadership as a member of high-performance teams.
