Managing industrial, business, or service activities in the modern world is a complex task as engineering, the sciences, and the humanities have become much more interdependent. All organizations need individuals capable of designing, installing and operating systems that will function in a society made more complicated by the technological explosion. The Department of Industrial Engineering meets this challenge through an intensive educational program. Building upon a solid foundation in the basic sciences, engineering, and computers, the curriculum provides the student with a capability for systems analysis & design that crosses traditional disciplinary lines, and an awareness of and concern for the demands of today's dynamic social systems.
