Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Engineering
This Program is accredited by the MFHEA
Degree Overview for Industrial Engineering
Engineers make things; industrial engineers make things better. Industrial engineering is essential to ensuring efficiency in any setting. Whether it is manufacturing smart phones or superior automobiles, streamlining an operating room in a hospital, shortening a rollercoaster line at an amusement park, or distributing products worldwide, these challenges share the common goal of saving a company money and increasing efficiency. Our students combine technical knowledge and skills from engineering, business, and social sciences to design, evaluate, monitor and improve system performance. They work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, energy and other commodities. Industrial engineers take courses in a variety of subjects such as production and process design, production planning, optimization, modeling and simulation, information management, facility layout, job/workplace design, engineering management, material flow, and distribution.
