Program overview 

Industrial engineering is ideal for those who enjoy both technology and working with people. Industrial engineers frequently spend as much time interacting with other engineers and product users as they do at their desks and computers. A degree in industrial engineering off¬ers students a significant opportunity for a flexible long-term career.

Because of the flexible nature of the major, an industrial engineering student can gain breadth of knowledge in many di¬fferent areas of industrial engineering, including, but not limited to, advanced manufacturing, distribution/logistics, ergonomics/human factors, modeling/simulation, and sustainable design and development. Students may choose free and professional electives for this purpose.

Our BS in Industrial engineering curriculum covers the principal concepts of engineering economics and project management, facilities planning, human performance, mathematical and simulation modeling, production control, applied statistics and quality, and contemporary manufacturing production processes that are applied to solve the challenges presented by the global environment and economy of today.

Starting in their third year, the students have the choice of a general degree in industrial engineering or a specialization in an option. The general degree and program options encourage a team approach. Students may work with students in other engineering disciplines to solve problems for clients outside of RIT Dubai.

The curriculum stresses the application of contemporary tools and techniques in solving engineering problems.

ACCREDITATION

The Industrial Engineering program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The main program at Rochester NY is also accredited by ABET and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

POSSIBLE CAREER OPTIONS

Industrial Engineering, one of the fastest growing professions in the world, integrates people, capital, material, equipment and information in an efficient way to manufacture and distribute goods and services with high quality at an optimum cost. The Industrial Engineering program designed by RIT covers the principal concepts of engineering economics and project management, facilities planning, human performance, mathematical and simulation modeling, production control, applied statistics and quality, and contemporary manufacturing production processes that are applied to solve the challenges presented by the global environment and economy of today.
 
As companies adopt management philosophies of continuous productivity and quality improvement to survive in the increasingly competitive world market, the need for industrial engineers is growing. Why? Industrial engineers are the only engineering professionals trained as productivity and quality improvement specialists.
 
It is important to mention here that given that UAE is becoming an international logistics hub and that most of the countries in the region are diversifying their non-oil industrial bases, the need for logistics engineer, supply chain analyst, production planner, quality engineer, and maintenance engineer will necessarily continue to grow to support and sustain the industrial development observed in the Gulf region. Industrial Engineering graduates from RIT Dubai will use their technical base as a springboard to careers in management, consulting, manufacturing, sales, healthcare, law, and education

OPTIONS 

GENERAL DEGREE OPTION 

The General Degree option would have a course from each of the program options available. Three (3) courses would be needed to be completed for the general degree options: 
  • ISEE-760 - Design of Experiments 
  • MGIS-755 - Information Technology Strategy and Management 
  • ISEE-704 - Logistics Management 
  • MECE-404 - Robotics 
Any one course from the supply chain management option
 

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT OPTION 

The Supply Chain Management Program Option provides further study in the design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of distribution and logistics activities with the objective of ensuring the cost-effective delivery of products and services globally. The following courses need to be completed: 
  • MGIS-755 - Information Technology Strategy and Management 
  • ISEE-703 - Supply Chain Management 
  • ISEE-704 - Logistics Management
