Mission of B.S. Industrial Engineering Technology (IET)
The mission of the Industrial Engineering Technology program is to produce graduates who can easily make the transition from the university to planning and supervisory positions in the workforce, particularly that of the industrial sector, including manufacturing and service industries. In light of this, courses are infused with industrial applications and students are required to study problems identified in local industries. In their senior project course, students frequently interface with local industry and, under the guidance of faculty, analyze and solve problems that have real-world applications.
Graduates possess the necessary skills, critical thinking, discipline and work ethics consistent with the expectations of employers to enter planning and supervisory positions in manufacturing and service industries.
