Designed to develop the technical skills and intellectual discipline needed to become leaders in industrial engineering and related professions, the Industrial Engineering undergraduate program is distinctive in its emphasis on quantitative, economic, and computer-aided approaches to production and service management problems. We focus on providing an experimental and mathematical problem-formulating and problem-solving framework for industrial engineering work, with a broad foundation in the current ideas, models, and methods of industrial engineering.
