The four-year curriculum in industrial engineering at Texas A&M is designed to provide students with a solid basis in mathematics and science, as well as in engineering economics, manufacturing systems, production and inventory control, operations research, quality engineering, reliability, facilities planning and materials handling. The program culminates with a senior design course in which students apply principles and knowledge acquired through the curriculum to an actual industrial problem.
The department offers Master of Science (MS), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in industrial engineering. Facilities for study and research are excellent, and participation in research is an integral part of the PhD program.
Departmental faculty working in diverse areas of industrial engineering provide students with a wide range of opportunities to gain valuable research experience. Faculty members are presently involved in research in applied statistical analysis, mathematical optimization, stochastic processes, production and inventory control, manufacturing processes and system organization, networks, systems simulation, manufacturing system analysis, quality and reliability engineering, human factors and cognitive ergonomics, transportation systems and logistics.
