COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING & SCIENCE

Industrial Engineering

Program Highlights

The Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers defines industrial engineering as a branch of engineering that deals with the optimization of complex processes, systems or organizations.

While some engineers design “things,” industrial engineers are often responsible for designing processes, or for analyzing and improving existing processes. Industrial engineers make things better in any industry—from automobile manufacturing and aerospace, to healthcare, forestry, finance, leisure, and education. An industrial engineer works to identify and eliminate waste and unnecessary costs, as well as to improve the safety of the worker. Many of our students are awarded a Six Sigma Green Belt certification (an industry-recognized quality control program that utilizes process-improvement techniques) by achieving a minimum grade of B in our statistics courses.

Industrial engineers work across a number of specialties, including operations research, systems, manufacturing, production, management science, safety or ergonomics.

The Louisiana Tech Industrial Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. To find out more information about the program mission, educational objectives, student outcomes and enrollment and graduation data, go to our Accreditation & Enrollment page.
