Industrial Engineering
Graduate Proram

Industrial engineers design, install, and improve the complex systems that provide goods and services vital to our society and economy. These systems place unique demands for breadth of preparation on industrial engineers. Baccalaureate degree graduates demonstrate the ability to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. Graduates will demonstrate the ability to apply the principles and techniques of industrial engineering analysis and design supported by a foundation in mathematical, physical and social sciences, and economic, operational, and engineering analyses. Graduates will possess a breadth of knowledge that allows them to practice industrial engineering with an appropriate awareness of information issues in systems improvement. In addition, graduates are able to work and communicate effectively with colleagues at every level in the organization.

One traditional arena for the implementation of industrial engineering is within manufacturing facilities; however, many practicing industrial engineers are employed in non-manufacturing institutions. The list of such possibilities is quite broad, including hospitals, banks, railroads, airlines, management consulting firms and government agencies. In addition to numerous employment opportunities in professional practice, industrial engineering graduates may further their formal education. The Department of Industrial Engineering offers the follow graduate degree programs: Master of Engineering, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy.
