B.S. in Industrial Engineering

Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering students at St. Mary's University are trained as productivity and quality enhancement specialists. The industrial engineering program combines science, mathematics, and engineering coursework with laboratories and classes in communications, English, and other humanities and social sciences.

The same techniques used by industrial engineers in the production and manufacturing arenas can be used to improve quality in service industries. Industrial engineers are concerned with improving the interaction between humans and our equipment. They are experts when it comes to saving money and improving the workplace for fellow workers.

They may be found shortening production times, streamlining a hospital operating room, designing a comfortable workstation, distributing products worldwide, or manufacturing superior cars.

The B.S. in Industrial Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
