BEng in Industrial Engineering

Develop efficiencies in processes, technology, and people

Industrial Engineers optimize processes and systems by finding ways to save time, money, energy, and materials. Through mathematical models, Industrial Engineers design systems and methods that will help businesses meet their production goals. Whether it's streamlining the manufacturing processes of automobiles to make cars more affordable or optimizing the nursing staff at a hospital to improve patient care, career options span a range of industries.

Your first two years of study

The first and second years (Study Terms 1, 2, 3, and 4) of study are common to all engineering students. You will choose to focus on a specific engineering discipline in your third year of study. Learn more about the core engineering program.

Program options

You may choose to complete the 5-year Co-op Program or the 4-year Non Co-op Program.
Co-op students take the same academic program as the non co-op program; however, our co-op option gives you an opportunity to complement your studies with three paid work terms.
