About this Bachelor's Degree

The Industrial Engineering Technology-Logistics (IET-Logistics) program is focused primarily on the planning and management of logistics and supply chain operations, in addition to typical industrial engineering technology functions, including facility planning, process improvement, cost and quality control, and project management. Typical entry level positions of our graduates include logistics analyst, supply chain manager, transportation coordinator, warehouse operator, distribution analyst, and project manager.

 

Program Educational Objective

Graduates possess the necessary skills, critical thinking, discipline and work ethics consistent with the expectations of employers to enter entry level planning and management positions in manufacturing and service logistics and supply chain industries. Specific program education objectives are as follows;

  • Apply systems approach to industrial engineering technology and logistics management.
  • Assess, analyze, benchmark, and improve processes related to the movement of products and services.
  • Relate the multidimensional impact of industrial engineering and logistics on the growth of company and the overall economy.
  • Understand and evaluate the impact of political, regulatory, and legal issues on different aspects and modes of transportation.
  • Use current tools and technology to perform discipline-specific functions effectively.
