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”.

Common to all engineering programs

F. Apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve engineering problems.

G. Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

H. Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability, in accordance with standards.

I. Recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.

J. Understand contemporary issues.

K. Use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

L. Apply knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

Specific to BS Industrial Engineering (adapted from CHED Draft of PSG for BSIE).

M. Design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy.

N. Perform services in the form of analysis, design, and implementation of work standards, statistical process control systems, production plan and aterial control systems, manufacturing and service facilities, operations research models for production and operations, and information systems.

O. Contribute to nation building by engaging in research and other forms of creative work geared towards the improvement of the industrial engineering field.

Specific to the University of the Philippines

P. Lead with honor and excellence in public service and in fields of practice.
