California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Industrial Engineering B.S.
Industrial Engineering is one of the six major engineering disciplines yet few people outside of engineering understand what Industrial Engineers do. The professional society for Industrial Engineers, the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), defines Industrial Engineering as:
Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, and equipment. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis, to design, specify, predict, and analyze the results obtained from such systems.
The Industrial Engineering curriculum provides a broad background in humanities and social sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, engineering science, analysis, design and systems. It provides a good balance between the traditional industrial engineering subjects and the most recent developments in the discipline. Industrial engineering students take courses in work analysis and design, process design, human factors, facilities planning and layout, engineering economic analysis, production planning and control, systems engineering, computer utilization and simulation, operations research, quality control, automation, robotics, and productivity engineering. The program is designed to provide the student with a good foundation of basic concepts and principles in addition to applied engineering techniques.
