Industrial Engineering (IE)
The curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (IE) is a fusion of Industrial Engineering and Production Engineering. It is an engineering discipline that is greatly valued internationally. The department not only focuses on the development of technical knowledge among students but also puts a great effort to make them more expressive and communicative to improve their competence over business graduates.
IE is a specialized branch of engineering which applies mathematics to different aspects of industrial and business processes. The knowledge of Industrial Engineering can be used to increase efficiency and productivity of an industry. IE uses modern technology to satisfactorily manage resources of all kinds, including human beings, around the world. IE tools are very helpful to design and analyze complex systems that integrate technical, economic, and social factors for all types of organizations.
The Industrial Engineering side of this discipline mainly focuses on Analytics and Data Science, Economic and Financial Systems, Operations Research, Optimization techniques, Quality Control techniques, Supply Chain management, Industrial Business Management, Operations Management and some other useful material management tools.
The other side of this engineering discipline that is Production Engineering focuses on various Modern Manufacturing Techniques used by the industries all over the world. The knowledge of manufacturing processes is directly applicable for the automation of an industry.
The Department of Industrial Engineering arranges special Industrial Attachment Programs for the students which help them to gather real life knowledge. These training programs not only make the students prepared for their job life but also helps to apply their gathered knowledge in industry.
The graduates of IE discipline have huge job opportunities both in Bangladesh and abroad. They have the opportunities to start their career in different industrial sectors such as the Garments Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Automobile Industry, Food Industry, Electronics Industry and so on.
Vision of the department
To make a place among the leading institutions of education and research in Industrial Engineering in Bangladesh and in the world as well.
To create an atmosphere in which higher studies and research can flourish both amongst the students and the faculties of the institution as well.
To establish interaction with leading technological institutions, research centers, and industries of national and international repute.
To internationalize education and research by opening international collaboration of tertiary education through academic exchange programme and joint research projects.
M 1: To offer quality education in the field of Industrial Engineering to create qualified and responsible graduates to meet the current challenges and future needs of the country and the world as well.
M 2: To pursue a curriculum in which besides the professional courses a strong emphasis will be given on acquiring thorough grounding in the basic success of mathematics, physics and chemistry as well as in subjects belonging to other disciplines including humanities, social sciences etc.
M 3: To practice improved teaching to enable the students to develop communication, reasoning, critical analysis, creativity, team work, and problem-solving skills they need for life, work, and further learning.
Program of Study
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 a B.Sc. degree a student has to earn 150.25 credits from a combination of courses offered by the university. 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, teamwork 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 IE can be considered as an embodiment of balanced education.
Category wise courses and credits summary
Increased industry interaction for students through classroom lectures, Quizzes, laboratory sessions, projects, factory visits, Industrial Attachment and part transaction in industry environment is the focus of the structured OBE curriculum. The contact hours are regulated to around 24 hours per week, giving increased time for theory, sessional, teamwork and self-study to the students. The degree program is completed with at least 30 working days Industrial Attachment which the students do in an industry or a company.
