Accreditation Information - Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

Overview

The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, Inc, http://www.abet.org. As required by ABET accreditation criteria, the Department has developed program educational objectives and student outcomes. The department's mission statement , program educational objectives and student outcomes can be found below. Program educational objectives are "broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation." Student outcome are "what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program."

Program educational objectives are periodically reviewed by the program's constituencies to ensure they remain consistent with the institutional mission, program's constituents' needs, and ABET criteria. The Department has also established a systematic process which assesses and evaluates the extent to which student outcomes are being attained. This process is systematically utilized as an input for the continuous improvement of the program.

Mission:

The mission of the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is to provide for students a solid industrial engineering curriculum coupled with a strong research program driven by the economic and technological development needs of society.
