Industrial Engineering is a diverse discipline concerned with the planning, design, implementation, improvement, and management of complex production systems of people, materials, and equipment for all kinds of manufacturing and service operations as well as the integration of computers, information, and technology to operate and control these complex systems. The graduate curriculum in Industrial Engineering is designed to provide the students with computing, quantitative, analytical and applications skills and to prepare them as entrepreneurs, problem solvers, effective decision-makers, and change agents in a competitive business environment or as prospective scientists in the academics. The program focuses on production and service systems, integrated manufacturing, supply chain management, product development process, modeling and analysis of manufacturing processes and equipment, operations research approaches to telecommunication and energy systems. Students are encouraged to interact with other disciplines to improve their communication skills and to be able to function in complex scientific and technical environments throughout their careers. Emphasis is given to close collaboration with the industry. Prospective students are expected to have a solid foundation in mathematics, and natural and engineering sciences. Students who do not have sufficient background in the core areas are required to take courses at the undergraduate level.
