IE Curriculum


Program Criteria

Our Industrial Engineering programs satisfy the following ABET's EAC criteria for Industrial Engineering Programs.

  1. Curriculum: The curriculum must prepare graduates to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The curriculum must include indepth instruction to accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and experimental practices. 
  2. Faculty: Evidence must be provided that the program faculty understand professional practice and maintain currency in their respective professional areas. Program faculty must have responsibility and sufficient authority to define, revise, implement, and achieve program objectives.
