Industrial Engineering at UTCIndustrial Engineering (IE) is the branch of engineering concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, material, information, equipment, and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems.
UTC IE Mission:
The UTC Industrial Engineering program promotes life-long learning by providing accessible undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education in the theory and practical application of industrial engineering while creating a supportive environment that enables students and faculty to excel.
In support of this mission, UTC’s Industrial Engineering program produces industrial engineers
- who effectively evaluate, design, and implement integrated systems of people, materials, information, machines, and energy as required by business and industries.
- who adapt to changing technologies and participate in further knowledge building opportunities such as professional and graduate education.
- who think creatively and holistically, communicate effectively, and function professionally and effectively in independent and team environments.
To produce such engineers, UTC’s Industrial Engineering program prepares students to
- use fundamental engineering principles, mathematics, engineering science, and computational methods to solve general engineering problems.
- use experimentation and data analysis, engineering and scientific knowledge, and modern-day tools embodied in the discipline of industrial engineering to evaluate and solve industrial, service, and commercial problems, develop improvements, and conduct economic and feasibility analyses.
- design (describe, analyze, synthesize, decide, create, modify, implement, and control) integrated systems involving people, materials, information, equipment, and energy.
- approach unstructured problems in the broader context of the organization or society and considering component interrelationships and dependence.
- participate in multi-disciplinary teams and environments as contributing individuals, leaders, and/or technical experts.
- effectively present and explain their solutions in the context of written, oral, and electronic media.
- conduct independent learning.
and instills in students the
- importance of life-long learning and the need for knowledge of contemporary issues in industrial engineering and engineering in general.
- advantages of exercising professional practices and ethics.
Graduates of the UTC Industrial Engineering program receive a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degree. This program is accredited by ABET, Inc., the primary accreditation body for engineering programs.
