Industrial Engineering & Management

Industrial Engineering is a rapidly developing and broad professional discipline. It deals with design, installation, operations and management of integrated systems of men, materials and machines drawing upon specialized knowledge of physical and social sciences and technology. It especially deals with managerial problems requiring knowledge of fundamental science and engineering practice for their solutions.

While manufacturing industry has a wide scope and demand for Industrial Engineering, increasing numbers are finding satisfying employment in other kinds of business, hospitals, Hotels, Banks, Air Lines engage using Industrial Engineers. The increasing role of MNCS and expert oriented industries; with added emphasis on quality management has significantly enhanced the demand of industrial engineers. 

Industrial Engineers serve as a bridge between management goals and operational performance. They are more concerned with increasing productivity through the management of people, methods of business organization, and technology than are engineers in other specializations, who generally work more with problems or processes.

Industrial Engineering and Management offers:

Department of Industrial Engineering and Management offers the degree courses, taking into consideration the technical and professional requirements of the discipline and prospective employer organizations. The department is equipped with adequate number of laboratories in the fields of Quality Control, Computer laboratory with sophisticated software’s and Time and Motion Studies. The department has also launched a postgraduate degree program since 2004.

What Do Industrial Engineers Do?

Industrial engineers (IEs) apply science, mathematics, and engineering methods to complex system integration and operations. Because these systems are so large and complex,to have knowledge and skills in a wide variety of disciplines, the ability to work well with people, and a broad, systems perspective. Industrial engineers use their knowledge and skills to improve systematic processes through the use of statistical analysis, interpersonal communication, design, planning, quality control, operations management, computer simulation, and problem solving . In other words the Industrial engineers find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes. They devise efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product.

Career opportunities

Industrial Engineering is a dynamic rapidly growing profession that provides a wide range of career opportunities. Today’s increasing complexity and scarcity of resources in industry, services and organizations have led to ever broadening employment opportunities for industrial engineers. Industrial engineering graduates achieve a unique background that combines science, mathematics, engineering fundamentals of design and management principles to provide a sound basis for life long career development in professional practice, research, and management.
