A Dynamic Career
Any industry that uses integrated systems to improve efficiency, safety, and profitability — such as manufacturing, health care, insurance, banking or finance, computers or electronics, the military, and government — employ industrial operations engineers.
As an industrial operations engineer, you will find solutions to meet desired goals by collecting and interpreting data, using productivity and optimization models, and conducting experiments. You’ll analyze and design the delivery of goods and services to increase efficiency and improve the coordination of people, information, design, materials, equipment, and economics.
Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Industrial Operations Engineering is a comprehensive program that combines the fundamentals of classical engineering with operational and financial mathematical modeling. It provides a strong foundation drawn from Lawrence Tech’s highly respected mechanical engineering program and courses that cover operations research, simulation and modeling in system design, definition of market forces, statistical methods, ergonomics, and finance. The program’s emphasis on interfacing managerial techniques with engineering principles will enable you to think strategically and logically in devising system solutions.
True to Lawrence Tech’s unique blend of theory and practice, the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Operations Engineering includes a required internship or co-op. This opportunity to gain hands-on, practical engineering experience can give you a distinct advantage with future employers.
