Industrial Engineering & Management Program

As a graduate of industrial engineering, you will have the opportunity to design systems and processes that improve the quality and productivity of an organization's business activities.  You will employ a strong base of fundamental engineering and management skills to effectively integrate people and resources to create positive change.  Quite simply, you will design and implement the best way to get work done.

Manufacturing Engineering Program

As a graduate of manufacturing engineering, you will have the opportunity to design systems and processes that improve the quality and productivity of an organization's business activities.  You will employ a strong base of fundamental engineering and management skills to effectively integrate people, technology, machines and money to create positive change.  Quite simply, you will design and implement the best to make things.

Minor in Reliability Engineering

Reliability engineering focuses on assessment of product/system design for the dependability of a system or component to function under varying operating conditions for specified time periods. Fundamentally it deals with the elimination or reduction of uncertainty and risks resulting in an improved reliability and reduction of failures.  Cost elements of failed systems include costs of downtime, repair costs, idle personnel, warranty costs and the cost of maintaining spares and replacement inventory. Engineers must identify the cause of failures, correct the causes, and determine ways to deal with failures that have occurred, and ultimately change the design or design process to reduce the frequency of failures in new systems or components. Student completing minor in Reliability Engineering will develop better understanding of statistical analysis, reliability and risk modeling, failure analysis, and design testing and optimization tools. Major manufacturing employers are looking to hire design and manufacturing engineers having better understanding of these tools and sets.
