The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering has a core engineering curriculum during the first two years. The objective of this curriculum is to give the student a rigorous foundation in mathematics, natural sciences, basic engineering sciences, applied probability, and computer science, as well as a complementary and meaningful exposure to the humanities and social sciences.
Building on the core courses, students gain knowledge of optimization methodologies, human factors, data analytics and systems modeling. They also learn to model and evaluate integrated systems of people, technology and information in the areas of production and service system design, supply chain design and management, control systems, quality systems, sustainability, data engineering, product and process design. Students have the opportunity to obtain Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification and/or an interdisciplinary Global Supply Chain Management certificate while completing the program requirements.
