Program Description

Chairperson Hadi Abou Chakra.
Assistant Professors Ramzi Fayad.
Lecturer Zeidoun Zeidan.
The Industrial Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The mission of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management is to prepare graduates with basic management and inter-personal skills, contemporary and relevant engineering education to become competent to design and improve operations in industry, business, and government, and to promote life-long learning.

The Industrial Engineering (IE) program educational objectives is set and approved by the IE program’s constituencies, i.e. Faculty, Alumni, Advisory Board, and Employers. The program has as its objectives that within a few years our graduates must:

1. be competent to identify and implement effective solutions to real problems by applying contemporary industrial engineering tools and cutting-edge technology in production, quality, safety, supply chain, optimization, economic, manufacturing, service and information systems.

2. be competent to formulate problems accurately, generate alternative solutions, evaluate those alternatives, and present the best solutions to clients or decision makers in a fashion that facilitates decision-making processes.

3. assume leadership roles with strong communication skills and will be able to work competently and ethically alone and as team members.

Upon completion of the program graduates must attain:

a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

d. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. an ability to communicate effectively

h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. a knowledge of contemporary issues

k. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work + IC3 + 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.

Industrial engineering differs from other branches of engineering in essentially two ways. First, it applies to all types of industrial, commercial, and government activities. Second, it is a branch of engineering that is explicitly concerned with people, products, as well as processes and operations. Industrial engineers learn to make decisions concerning the best use of people, material, and equipment in achieving organizational aims. They are spread across nearly all kinds of manufacturing. Recent data show that employment offerings are especially plentiful in manufacturing and service sectors, management consulting, chemicals, and food processing. Students develop skills in mathematics, the sciences, communications, and humanities. Therefore, an industrial engineering (IE) degree qualifies professionals for a diverse array of jobs, including: Engineering Project Manager, Supply Chain and Operations Manager, Quality Engineer, Industrial Scheduling Engineer, Maintenance and Safety Engineer, Production Process Engineer, Service Process Engineer, Construction Management Engineer, and Industrial Management Engineer. A growing trend in IE profession, especially consulting, is in the services sector of the economy such as banking, transportation, logistics, and government.

The Student’s Study Plan is provided to every IE student upon his/her enrollment. The IE curriculum consists of the following components:
