Curriculum of Industrial Engineering Undergraduate Program consists of 144 credit hours, with 65 course subjects, to be completed in 8 semesters. It consistent to ABET curricular criteria and consists of the following components:
- College-level mathematics and basic science course, which comprises a total of 35 credit hours (24.3%)
- Engineering topics, consisting of engineering science course which comprises of a total 63 credit hours (43.8%) and engineering design course which comprises a total of 31 credit hours (21.5%)
- General education course, which comprises of 15 credit hours (10.4%)
In order to complete the program, students should take all the required courses, consisting of 15 credit hours (10.4%) of general education, 115 credit hours (79.8%) of required courses, and 5 credit hours (3.5%) of final projects. Moreover, students should also take 9 additional credit hours (6.3%) from Selected Elective Course to complete all the graduation requirements.
In Industrial Engineering Undergraduate Program, the engineering and basic science courses are classified into four main body of knowledges as follows:
- Production Engineering (37 credit hours, 25.7%); contains courses which cover design and development of an integrated production system.
- Ergonomics Engineering (14 credit hours, 9.7%); contains courses which cover design of an integrated system with focus on human factors and its interaction in the system.
- Operations Research (27 credit hours, 18.8%); contains courses which focus on mathematical formulation and quantitative analysis of an integrated system.
- Manufacturing System (24 credit hours, 18.6%); contains courses which cover design and development of product and manufacturing system.
These body of knowledge covers all Industrial Engineering knowledge areas as defined by Institute of Industrial and System Engineering (IISE) in 2016:
“Industrial engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill 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” (Institute of Industrial Engineering).
