Industrial Engineering

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (Pending NCFHE Approval)

Engineers make things; Industrial Engineers make things better. Whether manufacturing smart phones or superior automobiles, streamlining operations in a business, distributing products worldwide, or even shortening a rollercoaster line at an amusement park, the idea is to save money and increase efficiency.

 

Indeed, Industrial Engineers forge careers that, though admittedly varied, are often concerned with how to drastically reduce or even eliminate our waste of time, money, materials, energy, and other valuable commodities. Industrial Engineers assume positions of consequence in industries such as high tech, manufacturing, entertainment, shipping and logistics, healthcare, project management, transportation, systems modeling, telecommunications, customer service, and even in government.

Degree Requirements

The BS in Industrial Engineering degree is a four-year degree program.

The B.S. in Industrial Engineering is a four-year program. If you are majoring in Industrial Engineering at AUM, you will take courses in production and process design, production planning, optimization, modeling and simulation, information management, facility layout, job/workplace design, engineering management, material flow, and distribution. As part of the AUM program, you’ll rely on what you glean from your engineering studies as well as the fields of business and social sciences to design, evaluate, monitor, and improve system performance in various experiments.
