Description of the major
The undergraduate program in Industrial Engineering, being the first established in the world, has a long tradition of providing a strong, technical, hands-on education in design, control, and operation of manufacturing and service processes and systems. The curriculum provides a broad-based education in manufacturing, operations research, and ergonomics through a base of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences, and laboratory and industrial experiences. It builds a strong foundation for the development of a professionally competent and versatile industrial engineer, able to function in a traditional manufacturing environment as well as in a much broader economy, including careers in financial services, communication, information technology,transportation, health care, consulting, or academia.
