Bachelor of Science

Program Information:

Students specializing in Industrial Engineering will complete the program as outlined here. Click on the picture at right to see the layout of courses in the curriculum. The first two semesters are spent in the Department of Engineering Fundamentals.  Students then apply for admission into the Department of Industrial Engineering  and once accepted, spend ten semesters in Departmental Studies (for the Bachelor of Science degree) and a fifth year in Graduate Studies (for the Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering degree).  This curriculum is designed as an integrated five-year program, with a cooperative education component, culminating in the Master of Engineering degree.

This degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Appropriate design experiences are presented to students throughout the industrial engineering curriculum, starting with IE 240 Fundamentals in IE courseat the sophomore level, continuing through the IE 499 capstone design course at the senior level, and culminating with the IE 697 Master of Engineering Thesis or IE 699, IE Masters Thesis Project.  At the senior level, design projects are required in most courses like IE 421 - Facility Location and Layout, IE 430 Quality Control, IE 541  Simulation, and IE 480 Ergnomics and Work Physiology. Students are also exposed to various levels of design experience in their three required co-ops.
