Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BS IE)
Industrial Engineering integrates technical engineering education with technology-related and management disciplines. It is only engineering discipline with close links to management.
It provides students a strong foundation in engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, information technology, quality engineering, systems engineering, logistics and supply chain, production systems, ergonomics, optimization, organization and decision making, allowing its graduates to work in both technical and managerial positions.
Industrial Engineering focuses on design, installation and improvement and optimization of integrated systems of people, materials, equipment, information and energy.
*Selected students with exceptional standing during their SHS can take our honor program of straight BS IE and MS IE (BMIE) program subject to grade requirements.

What Do Industrial Engineers Do?
Industrial engineers find ways to optimize production processes. They develop efficient systems that integrate workers, materials machines, information and energy to make a product or deliver a service.
Develop and design process flows and production schedules
Determine manufacture processes with maximum efficiency
Develop control systems and production plans to ensure products meet quality standards
Manage logistics and supply chain
Career opportunities can be in the areas of production operations, quality control, logistics and supply chain, information systems, financial management in the following industries
Manufacturing (Transportation, Machinery, Computer and Electronics, Consumer Goods)
Distribution / Logistics
