The BSIE program consists of courses aimed to hone the critical thinking, analysis, and the overall personality of the student. There are four major areas of study, namely, Operations Research and Management Science, Production Systems, Information Systems, and Ergonomics or Human Factors Engineering. This program will produce professional Industrial Engineers equipped with the necessary technical and analytical skills and practical intelligence that will help them design, improve and install integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment, and energy, in whatever career path they will pursue.
The BS Industrial Engineering Program aims to produce graduates who:
1. manage and lead public and private organizations in designing, implementing, and improving processes and systems
2. pursue entrepreneurial and technology-based innovation ventures
3. engage in lifelong learning through professional practice, research, and graduate studies
A graduate of the BS Industrial Engineering should have the following ability to:
Common to all programs
A. Articulate the latest developments in their specific field of practice.
B. Effectively communicate orally and in writing using both English and Filipino languages.
C. Work effectively and independently in multi-disciplinary and multicultural teams
D. Demonstrate professional, social and ethical responsibility, especially in practicing intellectual property rights and sustainable development.
E. Preserve and promote “Filipino historical and cultural heritage”.
