Industrial Engineering program structure

As a bachelor’s student in the USA, you’ll usually choose to study industrial engineering as your major concentration. This means you’ll need to gain a set amount of credits in industrial engineering modules, alongside other minor subjects and general studies.

Elsewhere it’s possible to study a BSc, or BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) in industrial engineering at undergraduate level. In some countries like the UK, very few universities offer industrial engineering as a bachelor’s program and it is more common as a postgraduate master’s course.

Bachelor’s programs can last between three and five years, and studying for a master’s degree will take one or two years. You may also be able to study for a PhD in industrial engineering or a related area, which can take around five years to complete.

Industrial engineering programs are usually taught primarily through lectures, seminars and workshops, but you may also get the opportunity to learn on placement. The content and structure of each program will be unique each university, but some common modules you’ll study include:

  • Mathematics
  • Engineering cost analysis
  • Business management
  • Engineering statistics
  • Physics for engineering
  • Supply chain management
  • Operation systems
  • Project management
