What is Industrial Engineering?
Industrial Engineering focuses on improving processes or designing more efficient things and wastes less money, time, raw resources, workforce, and energy while following safety standards and regulations. Industrial engineers may use Math, Physics, and Social Sciences to analyze, design, predict and evaluate the results and roadblocks of processes and devices.They make sure your mobile phone fits in your pocket while still having a lot of processing power and not overheating, or they can make sure it won't burst into flames while you're flying on a plane. As you can see, there's a great need for capable industrial engineers in the world.
So, if a company's product isn't working as well as they had hoped, who're you going to call? Industrial engineers!
So why study Industrial Engineering?
There’s no such thing as a bad idea in Industrial Engineering . In your Bachelor’s studies, you’ll always be encouraged to come with solutions and different approach angles. Look around, and you’ll only see industrial engineers – your cup, your laptop, your scarf: everything needs someone to plan their life cycle. Yes, that's the Industrial Engineer.
By studying this program at GU, You’ll be part of a dynamic field. Technology always evolves and you will have to keep up with it all, always learning how to bring about innovation. Studying Industrial Engineering is flexible . As a result, you can pursue a more technical or a more management-oriented path, customizing your approach to Industrial Engineering.
In order to graduate, you need to study the following:
University Requirement: (14+6) = 20 Credit Hours.
General Field Requirement: (33 + 0) = 33 Credit Hours.
General Specialty Requirement: (64+3) = 67 Credit Hours.
Minor Specialty Requirements: (30+15) = 45 Credit Hours.
Total: (141+24) = 165 Credit Hours.
Graduates of this program will possess the following learning outcomes:
- Implement basics of industrial engineering to analyze, plan and design production systems.
- Identify the tools used in the management of industrial and service systems operations and analysis of components of the production system.
- Develop quality concepts and quality. management systems to ensure quality control.
- Formulate production planning problems using different mathematical methods and operational research tools.
- Analyze, design, integrate, automate, and implement methods and techniques to manage industrial systems.
It’s not difficult to figure out why Industrial Engineering is so popular. With such a wide range of skills, industrial engineers can work in technical and managerial positions. It prepares you to work in a limitless variety of industries, including technology, health care, communications, manufacturing, and academia. This means your job opportunities will double. Some prospective careers that await you are:
- Service Industries.
- Logistics Providers.
- Manufacturing Industries.
- Consulting and Engineering Services.

- Wholesale Trade.
You will also have the following career options:
- Industrial Engineer
Industrial engineers make processes and operations more efficient, something every business can benefit from. That’s why industrial engineers can be employed in virtually any company in any sector that needs to improve their operations.
- Quality Assurance (QA) Engineer
QA engineers are responsible for tracking the development process of a product, monitoring problems, and solving those problems to make sure that the product meets company standards. Their work mainly involves testing the product or parts of it and overseeing the production process. They make sure that products are not only functional but are also safe. Your smartphone, for instance, does not overheat despite having a lot of processing power, thanks to the work of an industrial engineer.
- Process Engineer
Process engineers work in continuous manufacturing and are responsible for designing, installing, and monitoring equipment and processes involved in turning raw materials into a specific finished product. For example, they can be employed in agriculture or food manufacturing, turning milk into products like baby formula, butter, or cheese. They can also work in the pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical, mining, nuclear, chemical, or biotechnological industry.
- Production or Manufacturing Engineer
In contrast with process engineers, manufacturing engineers work in discrete manufacturing, assembling parts or pieces to produce a distinct item. Manufacturing engineers can oversee smartphones, toys, furniture, medical equipment, computers, etc. They are also needed in automobile production, shipbuilding, aerospace and commercial jetliner manufacturing.
- Business Analyst
Big data analytics helps businesses and organizations harness and understand their data and use it for a wide range of purposes, from reducing costs to making well-informed decisions, creating new products and services, and improving customer experience.
