BS in Industrial Engineering – Manufacturing Concentration

Objective

The Department of Industrial Engineering offers program leading to BS degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) with a Manufacturing Concentration. The program is designed for engineering undergraduates to obtain both a foundational degree in engineering and acquire fundamental knowledge of the manufacturing discipline. The multi-disciplinary concentration courses cover the main aspects of computer-based design, the conversion of research ideas into product development, cost control and optimization, company startups, cost proposal preparation, operating plan development and supply chain management. The BSIE – Manufacturing Concentration program is accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

The objectives of the BSIE – Manufacturing Concentration program is to prepare graduates who, within the first four to six years after graduation are, either:

  • Working as a professional or as an entrepreneur in an area closely related to service, government, consulting, logistics, retail, manufacturing, or
  • Exhibit lifelong learning by pursuing or having completed a graduate or professional degree and/or demonstrated professional development

Curriculum

Students enrolled in BSIE – Manufacturing Concentration program are required to complete 128 course credits.
