B.Sc. Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design, to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. Industrial engineers determine how to optimize the system for maximum efficiency, effectiveness, throughput, safety, or some other objective of interest to the stakeholders of the system. Industrial engineering enables students to perform technical, managerial, and consultant functions that require scientific and engineering backgrounds. Courses cover areas of human factors, manufacturing, facilities design, work analysis and design, operations research, process control, production and service systems management, as well as systems simulation. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for direct entry into the engineering profession as well as for graduate studies.

Program Educational Objectives

The objective of the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree program is to prepare graduates who will be successful in their chosen career paths. Specifically, graduates of this program will be capable of achieving the following within a few years of graduation :

  • Graduates are recognized as significant contributors in their organizations or post-undergraduate institutions, as indicated by promotions, raises, awards, publications, inventions, and/or leadership positions;
  • Graduates continue to expand their education, as indicated by post-undergraduate degrees, certificates, and/or other educational experiences;
  • Graduates are engaged in their profession, as indicated by professional licensing and/or participation in professional organizations and conferences.
Student Learning Goals

The Program of Study follows the accreditation agency “the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology” (ABET) in learning outcome criteria implemented with AUM’s vision and educational philosophy. Graduates of Industrial Engineering must have demonstrated :

  • Apply knowledge of math, science, and engineering
  • Design systems involving people, materials, equipment, information, and energy
  • Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
  • Design and conduct experiments
  • Collect, analyze, and interpret data
  • Model engineering issues quantitatively and draw appropriate inferences
  • Evaluate the impact of an engineering system on workers, users and organizations
  • Select appropriate combinations of manufacturing processes and materials to meet product requirements
  • Design, plan and control integrated production and service systems
  • Use modern computer tools to analyze and improve engineering systems
  • Function in cross-functional project teams
  • Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing
  • Understand professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers
  • Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and local context
  • Possess a knowledge of contemporary economic, social and political issues
  • Possess a knowledge of contemporary and emerging issues in industrial engineering practices
  • Possess the basic science and engineering background to support lifelong learning
Career Opportunities

Industrial engineers determine the most effective ways to use the basic factors of production—people, machines, materials, information, and energy—to make a product or provide a service. The most distinct aspect of industrial engineering is the flexibility it offers. Because of its broad perspective, industrial engineering is used in a wide variety of industries, including: manufacturing, health care, banking, insurance, transportation, construction, utilities, and government agencies. Roles include:

  • Project Management
  • Manufacturing, Production and Distribution
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Productivity, Methods and Process Engineering
  • Quality Measurement and Improvement
  • Program Management
  • Ergonomics/Human Factors
  • Technology Development and Transfer
  • Strategic Planning
  • Management of Change
  • Financial Engineering
