Bachelor of science degree

Industrial Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

The goal of the Industrial Engineering program is 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. Our graduates 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.

Industrial Engineering 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 professional development, the graduates of our program have the ability to:

  • Apply the tools and techniques of industrial engineering related to contributing and adding value to their organization.
  • Identify opportunities and formulate solutions that integrate technological and human systems.
  • Demonstrate leadership skills as a member of the industrial engineering profession and community.
