Program Description

The Industrial Engineering program of the Polytechnic University was created in 1980. To ensure the quality of our program since 1995 and every 6 years we receive the visit of the ABET Accrediting Agency (www.abet.org). The Bachelor Degree of Science in Industrial Engineering was developed and accredited following the Engineering Accreditation Commission criteria of the ABET Accrediting Agency. Our curriculum is designed so that the graduate can solve complex problems as well as capable of planning, designing, implementing, and managing integrated production and service delivery systems that assure performance, reliability, maintainability, schedule adherence and cost control. The systems may be socio technical in nature and integrate people, information, materials, equipment, processes, and energy throughout the life cycle of the product, service, or program.

Industrial Engineering adopts as its goals: profitability, effectiveness, efficiency, adaptability, responsiveness, quality, and the continuous improvement of products and services throughout their life cycles. The humanities and social sciences, computer sciences, basic sciences, management sciences, along with physical, behavioral, mathematical, statistical, organizational and ethical concepts will be used to achieve these ends.

Degree Offered

The Industrial Engineering Department offers undergraduate instruction leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE).

Career Opportunities

Manufacturing and service companies in both the private and public sectors seek Industrial Engineering graduates for their skills and competencies. In addition to the manufacturing industries such as pharmaceutical, electronics, medical devices and assembly-processes companies, which traditionally hire IE’s; other employers of our graduates include banks, hospitals, logistics-distribution firms, retailers, and consulting firms. Practicing industrial engineers serve as transition and integration consultants as well as developers and system architects in the design for producibility and usability of products and services. Industrial engineers, in senior positions, are sought as strategic planners and integrators because of their grasp of comprehensive and complex systems.

IE’s lead and manage engineering, manufacturing, service delivery, research and entrepreneurial firms, always searching for and fostering continuous change and improvement. In short, IE’s are called upon to help assure profits, total quality control, cost effectiveness, timeliness, and satisfactory results for customers and strategic impact through continuous improvement and innovation initiatives. Industrial Engineers are particularly sensitive to promoting human values of health, safety and satisfaction. The typical career path is an entry-level engineering or line supervision position that progresses to a management position in the firm or institution. Often, Industrial engineers ultimately become chief executive officers of their organizations.

Statistics and Quality Control Real-Life Project

In these courses the student is exposed, from early in his career, to real situations faced by an industrial engineer. The student starts with the engineering design process with the analysis of a business process and data experimentation. It also develops project management skills, teamwork and effective communication.

Service Engineering Project

In this course, students use the ethnographic method to identify the needs of customers in a service business. This method is widely used in social sciences to identify culture in groups of people. In our program we are using it to observe in depth the behavior and experience of customers. In this way the industrial engineer can identify unmet needs in the clients. As well as opportunities for service improvements and delight the customer.

MLT Seminar | Interview and Analytical | October 13, 2019 Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

The industrial engineering students Esteban Noel Lebrón and Issac Santiago attended the Interview and Analytical seminar of MLT in the city of Minneapolis. In the seminar they learned skills that will help them to manage effectively in their job interviews. During their stay, the students shared with various representatives of multiple companies and had the opportunity to interview for internships and employment opportunities. In the case of Esteban, he was interviewed by 6 companies and Isaac with three companies. Thanks to MLT (https://ml4t.org/blog/mlt-helping-minority-students-succeed-tech/) both Esteban and Isaac had access to these opportunities.
