The industrial engineering minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to: 1) provide training for engineering students on the design, optimization, and management of complex manufacturing and supply chain systems; 2) prepare engineering students with the tools needed to apply engineering concepts to issues faced by production, service, and supply chain organizations; 3) develop the analytical and managerial skills of engineering students in preparation for careers in industry.
