About this course

A baccalaureate degree in Industrial Engineering is offered by the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems. Industrial Engineering focuses on the design, improvement and integration of systems, products and processes. Our program is designed on a foundation in mathematics, science and engineering basics leading to developing knowledge and understanding of systems modeling and optimization, quality, lean operations, supply chain and human applications in industry, business, health systems, services and government.

Industrial Engineers work to continuously improve the design of systems, processes, or products. They design systems that translate a specific product design into a physical reality in the most productive manner and with the highest possible quality. In doing so, the industrial engineer deals with decisions regarding the utilization of people, materials, machines, and automation (including robotics). Industrial engineers are also skilled in Engineering Economic Analysis and Information Management since they are generally considered to be the natural interface between the technical specialist and management.

Industrial Engineers are generally sought in industry, service, and government organizations. In the industrial sector, the industrial engineer is concerned with improving productivity and quality of the manufacturing, distribution, and management system of organizations. In the service sector, the industrial engineer is concerned with determining the most productive manner in which to deliver high-quality service to the customer. In government organizations the industrial engineer is active in assuring that taxpayers receive maximum service for their tax dollars.

The Industrial Engineering approach is characterized by a systematic evaluation of alternatives using quantitative analysis, and computer simulations. As such, quantification and measurement play a key role in the day to day activities of the industrial engineer. Engineering design experiences are incorporated into many of the required industrial engineering core courses. For instance, students learn how to apply the principles of engineering design to production systems and cost estimation in EIN 3351, to work methods and process flows in EIN 3314, and to facilities design and layout in EIN 4364. The design experience concludes with a real-world system design in the capstone course EIN 4891.
