Industrial Engineering at UTC
Industrial Engineering 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.
The industrial engineering program at UTC is an option within the ENGR Program. As such it has as its mission those objectives and outcomes of the ENGR Program.
The mission of UTC’s ENGR program is to provide accessible education in the theory and application of engineering in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment that
- Prepares students for successful careers in industry, government, and academia
- Emphasizes project-based design
- Promotes life-long learning
- Serves the engineering profession
UTC’s ENGR program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:
- Function as successful professionals in a variety of engineering disciplines
- Function effectively in multidisciplinary environments
- Adapt to various environments
- Participate in further knowledge building opportunities
- Are progressing toward Professional Registration
Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s ENGR program will demonstrate:
- The ability to apply fundamental knowledge in engineering sciences, mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer applications with programming.
- The ability to use engineering principles and modern engineering tools to identify, analyze, and solve engineering problems.
- The ability to design and conduct experiments, collect, analyze and interpret data, and use modern computer-based tools to evaluate problems
- The ability to design systems, components, or processes using a structured design process.
- The ability to work in interdisciplinary teams and to communicate effectively.
- An understanding of professional ethics, the process of registration, and the need for and ability to engage in continuing professional education.
- The knowledge of contemporary issues and the recognition of the impact of engineering decisions within the global and societal context.
