Bachelor of Science In Industrial Engineering
 
Introduction
The undergraduate program in Industrial engineering has been designed to offer high quality, up-to-date and internationally recognized education program. It is prepared to contain scientific and technological foundations, integrated knowledge, and skills of the applied sciences, engineering sciences, and industrial engineering sciences. It is, also, prepared to contain the necessary decision-making techniques and tools. This equips the students with the capability to perform their work effectively. Also, it gives the student the flexibility to pursue careers in variety of manufacturing and service organizations and work in related job functions in consulting, industry (manufacturing and services), government and academia.
The undergraduate program in Industrial engineering is based on the knowledge and skills of four main areas of specialization (manufacturing systems engineering, industrial operations systems engineering, logistics and human factors engineering and quality, safety and maintenance systems engineering). All the areas are integrated in a program that provides the students with the necessary principles, tools and skills of Industrial Engineering profession that in turns gives the flexibility to pursue careers in variety of manufacturing and service organizations.
 
Industrial Engineering Program Mission:
The mission of the Industrial Engineering program is to offer a high-quality program to educate and graduate industrial engineers who are equipped with the scientific and technical capabilities and tools that allow them to effectively practice and lead the profession in various industrial and service organizations for better community service.
 
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):
  1. Graduates will be able to identify, define and implement effective solutions to real cases in the manufacturing and service systems by applying industrial engineering sciences and tools, contemporary knowledge and cutting-edge technologies
  2. Graduates will be able to update their professional skills continuously to design integrated production systems of people, machines, information, energy, materials and financial resources
  3. Graduates will be able to communicate and work effectively and ethically as individuals and as team members
  4. Graduates will be able to assume leadership roles in their profession and communities
