Industrial Engineering Technology

Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) is the applied science which seeks higher productivity and more effective use of resources. The curriculum provides students with a comprehensive understanding of IET principles which will enable them to determine the most effective ways for an organization to use the three basic factors of production— people, machines, and materials to design, construct, operate, maintain and manage technical engineering projects. Industrial Engineering Technologists solve problems dealing with the location and layout of plant facilities, materials handling, workstation design, work measurements, wage and salary payment plans, production planning and control, quality control, occupational safety and health, and economic cost studies. To enable the graduate to solve such a wide variety of management problems, the curriculum of study will be broad and interesting. The field of Industrial Engineering Technology offers the student a challenging career in industry, business, construction, education, or government. Internship and co-op experiences are encouraged as vehicles for enhancing students’ communication and interpersonal skills, in addition to establishing awareness of industry practice and technical development. The overall program provides an integrated educational experience and training to maintain professional competency through life-long learning.

During the first two years, emphasis is placed upon establishing competence in mathematics, basic sciences, and fundamental industrial engineering technology topics while the Junior and Senior years they are devoted primarily to a balanced offering of courses in the technical specialty that gives breadth to their professional knowledge.

The Industrial Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
