Admission Requirements & Program Highlights

Co-op Available

Industrial Engineering – Industrial engineers help organizations operate efficiently and cost effectively using intelligent processes to streamline production systems, and design flexible manufacturing approaches. They use a wide range of knowledge to do so, including operations research, manufacturing sciences and enterprise resources planning and integration. After a general first year, you will learn how to engineer systems that interact with one another.
