Industrial Engineering Major

Industrial Engineering students will be prepared for engineering practice through a curriculum culminating in a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills in earlier course work and incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints. The curriculum will prepare graduates to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The curriculum includes in-depth instruction to accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and experimental practices.

Program Educational Objectives

Industrial engineers analyze, design, and transform complex systems of people, processes, and technology to accomplish organizational goals. To this end, the program educational objectives of the Industrial Engineering program are what we expect our students to attain within three to five years of graduation. 
The graduates of the UTA industrial engineering program:

  • enter industrial engineering or other professions and make contributions that benefit society, their employers, and themselves.
  • broadly apply knowledge of: (a) the mathematical, physical and social sciences; (b) economic, operational, and engineering analysis, and (c) the principles and practices of engineering design.
  • analyze, design, and transform the complex systems of people, processes and technology that enable the extended enterprise.
  • continue to expand their capabilities through professional development and advanced education.

The following student outcomes prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
