Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Industrial Engineering. Since its inception in Fall 2012, the Department of Industrial Engineering has remained committed to excellence in teaching and research through its application-oriented and industry-driven academic programs. Our faculty members are highly qualified, experienced, and 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 multidisciplinary graduate programs leading to master’s and doctoral degrees in engineering systems management to meet the interests of students from all engineering majors. The department has over 250 students – with 53 percent of them being women – working towards their bachelor’s degree, and more than 50 and 30 students registered in the master’s and PhD programs, respectively.
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 Master of Science in Engineering Systems Management (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.
Our PhD in Engineering—Engineering Systems Management (PhD-ESM) program helps prepare the next generation of leading academics and industry experts in engineering management, supply chain management, sustainable construction project management and smart cities management.
