What sets us apart from other engineering disciplines is the broad scope we cover. A degree in Industrial Engineering is as likely to lead you to the world of data science, finance, health care, or public service as it is to the manufacturing floor. You’ll use your engineering skills for data-driven decision making, applying the tools you master in our program towards the improvement of goods and services in any field you choose. And this breadth of training and experience positions many of our graduates to become tomorrow’s managers, directors, and CEOs.
Consistently ranked in the top-10 nationwide, the department offers the highest quality educational experience, world-class research opportunities, and cutting-edge facilities for work and study.
