The BSIE curriculum provides training on diverse engineering and management topics, including but not limited to manufacturing, production planning and control, supply chain and optimization, and ergonomics. There is a strong emphasis on the internship experience. Almost all BSIE senior design projects are based on internship projects that deal with real industrial problems.

Industrial engineers work to find the most efficient processes for manufacturing and services. They analyze how humans, natural resources, machines, equipment, information, and energy interact with each other in daily operations. Industrial engineers use both observation and data analytics to optimize productivity, quality, safety, and customer service. They need a wide range of knowledge and skills to be able to work with both people and systems.

These skills can be seen in the experience of our recent graduates, who have found an array of career opportunities. Industrial engineers have flexibility and breadth in the types of jobs they perform across many business sectors and service organizations. It is one of the fastest growing engineering fields.

Mentoring is an integral part of the undergraduate industrial engineering program. New students in the program are paired with senior mentors to help guide and support them. In addition, there is a faculty career mentor to help all undergraduates as they prepare for internships and full-time jobs. Students also receive mentorship by engaging with our extensive alumni network through LinkedIn discussions, panels, training, and one-on-one sessions.
