Industrial Engineering


The Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering (M.Eng.) was designed specifically for working professionals who want a high-quality, advanced degree in supply chain logistics and want to remain employed full-time. With the knowledge gained in pursuing this degree, students are able to improve and optimize the supply chain wherever they work – manufacturing, distribution, banking, healthcare, and tourism, as well as in capital projects and construction. Since the program’s inception in 2008, it has quickly gained acclaim across a wide range of businesses and industries.

The curriculum provides a diversified knowledge base of information and techniques for improving current supply chain processes, as well as durable tools and concepts that graduates will use to face the challenges of tomorrow.
