B.Sc. in IE

Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (IE)

Objective: B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering (IE) is a four years course designed to provide the students with a sound foundation in the technology and Industrial Engineering. To acquire B. Sc degree a student has to earn 150 credits from a combination of courses offered by BUFT. Industrial Engineering is an engineering fraternity that is greatly valued internationally. It has been contributing enormously to the improvement of productivity and operations as well as operating conditions of numerous organizations all over the world. Education in IE incorporates not only basic engineering and technical subjects, but also other relevant fields of study such as humanities, accounting, presentation skills, creativity, team work and business and management skills. In present day industries, these skills are deemed really essential to make an engineer apt to face the challenges of practical scenarios. In most of the cases, an engineering job is not merely an engineering job; it is interlinked with multifaceted variables. An engineer working in a practical situation needs to be well alerting, pro-active and fully aware of the surrounding contingencies.  That is why, education in IPE can be considered as an embodiment of balanced education.
