The orientation of industry is "productivity through quality."
Significant productivity improvements demand that the industrial

Department of Industrial Engineering meets the challenge of the growing
complexity of industry through an intensive educational program.
Building upon a solid foundation in the basic sciences, engineering, and
computers, the curriculum provides the student with (1) a capability
