Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BS IE)
Industrial and manufacturing systems engineering is a blending of natural sciences, engineering science, mathematics, computers, social science and management. This fusion of diverse skills allows industrial engineers to design and implement socio-technical systems – complex combinations of people and technology brought together to solve problems. With its diversity, industrial engineering is used in a wide variety of areas in both manufacturing and service industries.
