Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Industrial Engineering. The department was established at AUS in 2012 with the mission to promote and maintain excellence in teaching and research through its application-oriented and industry-driven academic programs delivered by highly qualified, experienced and motivated faculty members who are strongly committed to providing effective advising and mentoring for our students.
In addition to a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) degree, the department offers a multidisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering Systems Management (MSESM) to meet the interests of students from all engineering majors seeking to continue their education.
The curriculum of our BSIE program is designed with the aim of graduating engineers with the knowledge and skills necessary to function as professional engineers in working environments where cost effectiveness, high productivity, continuous quality and reliability improvements, waste reduction, and efficient resource utilization are critical success factors for organizations. Our students are well prepared to pursue successful careers and future studies in several industrial engineering areas such as supply chain and logistics engineering, maintenance engineering; quality engineering; facility design and planning; production planning, scheduling and control; warehousing and inventory control; and manufacturing engineering.
Our MSESM program has become the premier choice for engineers in the region whose goal is to work in areas that integrate technical engineering skills with managerial and economic skills. It also aims at advancing research and development efforts in the region.
Through our two programs, we are committed to providing our students with practical learning experiences that help them develop professional knowhow and build problem solving and critical thinking skills, creativity and innovation abilities, and entrepreneurship capabilities.
I hope that you will find interesting and relevant information about our curriculum, faculty, facility, and research opportunities. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
