Industrial Engineering Program


Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations. Industrial engineers work to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, person-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value.

According to the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, they create engineering processes and systems that improve quality and productivity.

Program Mission

The mission of the Industrial Engineering Program is to qualify students for successful and outstanding careers in Industrial Engineering fields. This is based upon: a solid foundation in technical & managerial abilities, professional ethical potential contemporary communications skills, mastering of techniques of integrated processes.

The program also aims to cope with the developments in latest technologies and acquiring competitive advantages. so as to prepare graduates for the practice of industrial engineering at the professional level with confidence and skills necessary to meet the technical and social challenges of the future and for continuing their studies at the graduate level.

Program Objectives

In pursuit of this mission, the educational objectives of the Industrial Engineering Program can be summarized as follows:

  • To provide students with the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics and science to mathematical modeling and to problems related to systems that produce products and services.

  • To provide students with understanding of the fundamental knowledge in the different industrial engineering fields such as: feasibility study, Engineering economy, Project management, Production management, Total quality management, Global maintenance management, HSE management, Global performance evaluation, Risk assessment, and Computer applications.

  • To provide students with the ability to identify, formulate, and find optimal solutions to system problems, while considering physical and economic constraints as well as safety and ergonomic issues;

  • To provide students with the broad education, including knowledge of important current issues in industrial engineering, necessary for productive careers in the public or private sectors, or for the pursuit of graduate education.

  • To provide skills for clear communication and responsible teamwork, and to inculcate professional attitudes and ethics, so that graduates are prepared for the complex modern work environment and for lifelong learning.

  • To provide an environment that enables students to pursue their goals in an innovative program that is rigorous and challenging, open and supportive.
