Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering

As one of the longest standing departments in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department has a long tradition of providing excellence in education to its students. The department provides a broad, technical, hands-on education in the design, control, operation, evaluation and implementation of systems and processes for service and manufacturing industries as well as government organizations. Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering education is provided at the baccalaureate, masters and doctoral level.

The Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department is heavily involved with research and service both locally and nationally. Faculty members are often involved in large, federally funded research projects and have relationships with numerous local industries where the faculty members perform research and provide Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering services.

Like all programs in the College of Engineering & Applied Science, the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering curriculum is built upon a standard engineering education of mathematics and physical, natural and engineering sciences. The Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering curriculum uses that standard engineering knowledge and builds a broad education centered on operations research and rounded with background in statistics, quality control, operational methods and standards, manufacturing processes, economics, and ergonomics. The curriculum culminates in an applied team project performed on-site at a local, sponsoring industry. The complete curriculum provides students with a solid foundation of tools necessary for a successful and productive career as an Industrial and Manufacturing Engineer, regardless of the industry they choose for practice.

We expect our graduates to:

  1. Have successful careers as professionals in industrial engineering or a related field.
  2. Contribute to improving efficiency, productivity and/or quality of products manufactured or services provided by their organization.
  3. Demonstrate professionalism and continue their professional development.

For the B.S. degree in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, a minimum of 125 credits are required.
