Industrial Engineers (IEs) optimally design, build, and maintain production/operational systems for maximum possible effectiveness, efficiency, productivity, and competitiveness. That's why today's highly globalized enterprises are hiring industrial engineers in both Industrial/Manufacturing settings, and Service-related settings such as Airlines, Transportation/ Logistics, Power Utilities, Healthcare Systems, Publishing, Amusement Parks, Space Systems, etc. If you wanted always to be an engineer, and also you are a people-oriented person, then you would want to consider being an Industrial Engineer, because industrial engineers are systems-integrators, interacting with all other types of engineers and non-engineers in diverse enterprises.

The Industrial Engineering (IE) Department at the University of Miami emphasizes excellence in education and research, while keeping in par with the growing technology. Due to favorable relative numbers of faculty and students, individual students receive personal attention.


Our Mission

The mission of the Industrial Engineering program is to prepare students to become knowledgeable and skilled engineers with an understanding of the ethical and other professional aspects of biomedical engineering. Design skills and an ability to work both independently and as part of a team are emphasized.
