Industrial Engineering

  • Definition: Industrial engineering (IE) prepares students for careers in an increasingly diverse, dynamic and technological world. Industrial engineers focus on the integration of humans, machines, materials and information to achieve optimum performance of operating systems. This focus on the "big picture" makes industrial engineering one of the most people-oriented and customer-focused of the engineering disciplines. Industrial engineering also involves the study of engineering design, system integration, optimization, quality and reliability, supply chain management, virtual reality, and manufacturing.

    Industrial engineers (IEs) apply science, mathematics, and engineering methods to complex system integration and operations. Because these systems are so large and complex, IEs need to have knowledge and skills in a wide variety of disciplines, the ability to work well with people, and a broad, systems perspective. Industrial engineers use their knowledge and skills to improve systematic processes through the use of statistical analysis, interpersonal communication, design, planning, quality control, operations management, computer simulation, and problem solving.
