Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) integrates the disciplines of science, engineering, information technology and management to study and optimise the operational efficiency of organisations. IEM graduates contribute to the growth of manufacturing and process industries through their technical expertise in creating innovative production processes and developing efficient facilities. Our BS (IEM) degree program is accredited by PEC and automatically qualifies the graduates for MS/MBA programs at IoBM. Our students uses models and techniques to systematically analyse the strengths and weaknesses of organisations and propose improvements. BS (IEM) graduates are given attractive exemptions from the equivalent courses of the foundation stage of the MBA Industrial Management program. The outstanding feature of our BS (IEM) program is the provision of hands-on training facilities in industrial units on a continuous basis, which blends theory with practical experience. For instance, each final year student is required to undergo 2 credit hours of internship of 6 to 8 weeks with a reputable engineering firm. This close collaboration increases job opportunities and accessibility to higher technical and managerial positions. Our BS (IEM) program requires completion of 138 credit hours of course work, including 46 courses. Students graduating with a CGPA of 2.5 automatically qualify for the MBA program offered by IoBM. Students can also proceed further for postgraduate work in Industrial/Management Engineering at leading international schools.

Mission

Our mission is to produce responsible engineers and citizens through courses in professional and social ethics, engineering management, and engineering economics

Vision

To produce a diverse group of professionals in Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) field to become leaders in wide range of industries including manufacturing, energy, transport, healthcare, humanitarian, financial and several others. We prepare students for productive careers in industry as well as academia by providing a comfortable environment for teaching, learning, and research in the theory and applications of manufacturing and management. Our programs are designed to equip industrial engineers with software and hardware tools required to meet the challenges of industry as per current national and international requirements. Also, prepare innovative skills to enhance students’ knowledge to meet the future challenges of the industry.

Program Objectives

The following objectives are designed for our BS (Industrial Engineering & Management) program which are aligned with mission statement of the department as well as the Institute.
