BS in Industrial Engineering

Objective

The Department of Industrial Engineering offers program leading to BS degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE). The program is distinctive in its emphasis on quantitative, economic, computer-aided approaches to production and service management problems. It is focused on providing an experimental and mathematical problem-formulating and problem-solving framework for industrial engineering work. The curriculum provides a broad foundation in the current ideas, models and methods of industrial engineering. The BSIE program is accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

The objectives of the BSIE 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, 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 program are required to complete 128 course credits.
