Program Contact: Emre Tokgoz 203-582-7909
Industrial engineers are employed throughout various industries, including manufacturing, health care and service, to determine the most effective and efficient ways to utilize resources. Industrial engineers are concerned with increasing productivity through the effective management of people, processes and technology. Through exposure to the University Curriculum, foundational course work in science, mathematics, major field courses and extracurricular activities, students graduating with a BS in Industrial Engineering achieve intellectual proficiencies in critical thinking and reasoning, scientific literacy, quantitative reasoning, information fluency and creative thinking and visual literacy. They also achieve interpersonal proficiencies in written and oral communication, responsible citizenship, diversity awareness and sensitivity and social intelligence.
