    Course Content

    The industrial engineering curriculum is based on a strong background in mathematics and science. The first two academic years are used to build the knowledge and experience base necessary to learn and apply fundamental engineering concepts and principles. Courses within the major are a blend of engineering and business topics.

    Our courses are taught almost exclusively by our engineering faculty. The typical class size is fewer than 40 students. We emphasize teamwork and group projects, which help students develop the tools for success in today’s work environment. Our Senior Design course gives students the opportunity to work on a real-world problem for an organization. In Manufacturing Systems Design and Analysis, students gain experience in product design, production, marketing, sales and distribution.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
