About the program

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) degree is a robust program that prepares students to work on integrated systems. Students take a systems approach in the design, development, testing, and evaluation of processes, services, and products. They understand and can account for the organizational and societal impacts of technical decisions. BSIE students sharpen their oral and written communication skills via various team projects throughout their studies.


The undergraduate curriculum focuses on system integration and methods to analyze, design, and improve manufacturing and service systems. Students take courses in operations research, production systems, applied statistics and design of experiments, quality control, and human factors. The BSIE degree culminates in an industry sponsored senior design experience. Learn more about degree requirements.
