Welcome to the
Department of Industrial Engineering (IE)
Manufacturing industries today have to deal with the optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations. Also eliminating waste of time, money, materials, person-hours, machine time, energy and other resources that do not generate value are their prime concerns.
Industrial engineering is concerned with the development, improvement, and implementation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes.
Considering the importance of industrial engineering studies and demand of industrial engineers in Bangladesh, BUFT has introduced a new department, department of industrial engineering. The department functioning under the umbrella of Faculty of Engineering Studies offers an undergraduate program leading to B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering degree.
Program of Study
The department functions under the umbrella of Faculty of Engineering Studies of BUFT and offers an undergraduate program leading to Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (B.Sc. in IE) degree. The program is constructed of an interdisciplinary curriculum drawing on diverse sciences, mathematics and industrial engineering principles.
B.Sc. in IE (Code: 651)
B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering is a four-year program designed to provide the students with a sound foundation in the technology and industrial engineering. Students opting to acquire a B.Sc. degree will have to earn a total of 150.25 credits.
Profile of the program
- Name of the Degree: Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering, abbreviated as B.Sc. in IE
- No. of credits: 150.25
- Language of Instruction: English
- Courses Start: Spring (January) & Fall (July) each year
- Standard time to attain the Degree: Four years (eight semesters, six months each)
- Minimum grade to attain the Degree: 2.50 in a scale of 4.00
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 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.
Accreditation of the Program
The program offered by the Department of Industrial Engineering has been designed as per the clear instruction of the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh, accordingly has been verified and approved by the proper authority nominated by the UGC.
The program consists of:
|#||Study Areas||No. of Courses||Credits||Percentage|
|2||Science & Allied Engineering||17||36.00||24.00|
|3||Business & Humanities||5||10.50||7.00|
