About this program

BS in Industrial Engineering

Streamlining the manufacturing process of an automotive plant or ensuring that workflows in hospitals and surgical centers remain safe and cost-effective are just a few ways industrial engineers combine systems thinking, practical problem-solving and advanced technical skills.

As an industrial engineer, you will draw upon a unique skill set that combines the technical field of engineering with the world of business management. An organizations budget and bottom line will rest on your ability to examine the big picture. Automotive and aeronautic manufacturing firms, health care organizations and distribution centers alike will rely on you for the timely creation and delivery of their parts, products and services, as well as for managing their greatest resource: people.

Our curriculum is hands-on and career-focused, with a particularly strong emphasis on the fields of manufacturing, healthcare, and supply chain. You will learn how to design and implement systems and processes that effectively coordinate people, machines, materials, energy and other resources to eliminate waste, increase output and ensure quality. A range of state-of-the-art facilities such as our performance optimization lab will give you hands-on education in the many human and technological factors at play each day in any number of complex systems.
