The overall educational objective of graduate study in industrial engineering is to improve each student’s ability to understand, analyze, and resolve problems within complex organizations. Industrial engineers must develop qualitative and quantitative abilities to assist management in such diverse organizations as banks, government, hospitals, military, and manufacturing operations. It is a dynamic field with many opportunities in nearly every industry.
ASU’s industrial engineering department emphasizes three primary areas of study: information systems engineering and management systems engineering; operations research and production systems; and quality and reliability engineering. A specialty program in international logistics is also offered.
