Industrial Engineering

Maximizing Efficiency

Industrial engineers encourage people to collaborate and help businesses, service industries, and even non-profit organization run more efficiently. Industrial engineers are often called "big picture" engineers, because they look at systems as a whole and come up with ways to improve them. They help people accomplish tasks safely, quickly and cost effectively.

Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering is all about choices - it is the engineering discipline that offers the most wide-ranging array of opportunities in terms of employment, and it is distinguished by its flexibility. While other engineering disciplines tend to apply skills to very specific areas, industrial engineers may be found working everywhere: from traditional manufacturing companies to airlines, from distribution companies to financial institutions, from major medical establishments to consulting companies, from high-tech corporations to companies in the food industry.

Industrial engineering has very close links to management - many industrial engineers move on to successful careers in management. If you think that one day you might want to start and run your own company, an industrial engineering program will provide you with the best training for this - regardless of what your company will make or what service you will offer!


Our graduates are recruited by large corporations, small businesses, government, and service industries. These include manufacturers, health care providers, transportation companies, engineering consulting firms and defense manufacturers and agencies.

Our graduates begin their careers in a variety of technical positions, including quality engineering, manufacturing engineering, technical sales, logistical planning and management engineering. Most then move into supervisory and management roles and many become executive leaders in their chosen industries.
