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 coursework 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.

Student Learning Outcomes
Attainment of the following outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering:
- Ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
- Ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
- Ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- Ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
- Ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
- Ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Program Educational Objectives:
Within four to seven years after graduation, industrial engineering alumni are expected to:
- Attain sustained employment in professional positions of increasing responsibility and impact;
- Successfully pursue professional training, engineering certification, advanced professional degrees or graduate studies;
- Demonstrate professional and intellectual growth as managers and leaders in their profession, society and communities.
Admission Requirements: School of Engineering
The requirements for admission into the undergraduate School of Engineering programs are the same as those for admission to Quinnipiac University.
Admission to the university is competitive, and applicants are expected to present a strong college prep program in high school. Prospective freshmen are strongly encouraged to file an application as early in the senior year as possible, and arrange to have first quarter grades sent from their high school counselor as soon as they are available.
