Industrial engineering is a discipline concerned with the design, improvement and the installation of the systems for organising the basic resources – people, materials, equipment, energy and information – to produce goods and services.

Programme structure

Industrial engineers (IEs) figure out how to do things better, drawing upon specialised knowledge and skills in the mathematical and physical sciences, engineering sciences, humanities and the social sciences to analyse, design, improve, control and evaluate production systems. Some benefits that can be directly linked to the work of industrial engineers include;

• More efficient and more profitable business practices while increasing customer service and quality,
• Good organization,
• Increased ability to do more with less,
• Making work safer, faster, easier, and more rewarding,
• Reducing the costs associated with new technologies,
• Showing ways to improve the working environments.

Career opportunities

The term “industrial” actually applies to “any organization”. Industrial engineering gives the graduates the opportunity to work in all kinds of business; manufacturing firms, service industries, and municipal and government organizations. Some sample projects of IE’s are as follows:

• Preparing the night shift schedule at a hospital
• Performing production planning activities of a manufacturing firm
• Developing layout of a bank
• Simulation modelling
• Designing a product that will prevent worker injury
