Industrial Engineering

Program Content

Industrial engineering concerns the planning, design, analysis, evaluation and implementation of systems of human resources, infrastructures and materials for the production of goods or the delivery of services. Industrial engineers seek to improve the productivity and quality of a business, and thus, unlike other engineers who apply their knowledge to specific areas, industrial engineers are active in a broad spectrum of businesses. Industrial engineers have the technical skills to make improvements in the manufacturing sector as well as to streamline operations in a service industry.

Industrial Engineering education seeks to develop the broad kind of systems engineering thinking that is necessary for the optimization and design of new manufacturing and service processes. The IIHEM Industrial Engineering curriculum consists of in-depth studies in the area of industrial engineering coupled with an intensive program in information systems and software development. Its courses cover the theoretical and practical areas of modern industrial engineering: manufacturing systems, operations research, statistics, engineering economics, reliability, industrial simulation, systems modeling, quality control, safety and industrial hygiene, engineering management, production, logistics and supply chain management. Information systems and software development courses cover the development and use of modern computer and automatic control methods to optimize enterprise production and service systems, software application design, systems analysis, database management and systems design.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates of the Industrial Engineering program will be professionals involved in engineering processes that improve the quality and productivity of a firm. They may be involved in a multitude of activities, such as the management and operations of firms, the layout of facilities for optimizing operations, infrastructure design and location, industrial production planning and services management. During their career they may hold a number of positions including those of industrial engineer, computer system analyst, database administrator, industrial production manager, supply chain manager and computer and information systems manager.

Graduate Education In Finance

Holders of industrial engineering diplomas may wish to pursue advanced studies in specialized fields related to their fields of study. Graduate university programs permit engineers to hone their skills and acquire professional profiles that are in great demand in the industrial and service sectors. Many industrial engineering university departments offer such graduate programs, leading to Master's and Doctoral degrees. Among the degree programs that can be pursued are the following:

  • Master of Science in Industrial Engineering
  • Master of Science in Manufacturing Engineering
  • Master of Science in Production Systems Engineering
  • Master of Science in Operations Engineering
  • Master of Science in Quality Engineering
  • Master of Science in Operations Research
