Undergraduate Degree in Industrial Engineering
The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) defines Industrial Engineering as:
Industrial engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design, to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems.
Industrial Engineering is emerging as one of the vital professions that would be counted on for solving complex problems in a highly technological world. Industrial engineers are confronted with a host of challenging situations ranging from manufacturing and cost estimating to the design of complex systems. They are needed in all kinds of industries and are employed by a variety of organizations including hospitals, banks, engineering firms, petrochemical industries, airline companies, government and military agencies, computer and software firms, and manufacturing.
Industrial Engineering at Texas A&M University-Commerce emphasizes the application of concepts, principles, and managerial skills required in contemporary business and industry. The program of study:
- reflects current and future business and industry practices and competencies
- prepares students for the high-tech engineering world of today and of the future
- develops analytical, critical, and problem-solving skills
