About Industrial Engineering

Industrial Engineers are concerned with designing and improving business operations. They apply math, science, and technology to improve the efficiency, quality and productivity of creating and delivering goods and services and to act as the interface between technology and humans. Engineering methods and practical knowledge are used in formulating decision models for the optimum application of engineering and management principles. As a student, you can find more information below that pertains directly to your major.
