Rochester Institute of Technology
Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering
Industrial engineering is ideal for those who enjoy both technology and working with people. Industrial engineers frequently spend as much time interacting with other engineers and product users as they do at their desks and computers. A degree in industrial engineering offers students a significant opportunity for a flexible long-term career. Because of the flexible nature of the major, an industrial engineering student can gain breadth of knowledge in many different areas of industrial engineering, including, but not limited to, advanced manufacturing, distribution/logistics, ergonomics/human factors, modeling/simulation, and sustainable design and development. Students may choose free and professional electives for this purpose. Our BS in Industrial engineering curriculum covers the principal concepts of engineering economics and project management, facilities planning, human performance, mathematical and simulation modeling, production control, applied statistics and quality, and contemporary manufacturing production processes that are applied to solve the challenges presented by the global environment and economy of today. Starting in their third year, the students have the choice of a general degree in industrial engineering or a specialization in an option. The general degree and program options encourage a team approach. Students may work with students in other engineering disciplines to solve problems for clients outside of RIT Dubai. The curriculum stresses the application of contemporary tools and techniques in solving engineering problems.
