The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and the Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,


The Industrial Engineering mission statement, which aligns with University of Louisville Mission Statementand J.B. Speed School of Engineering Mission Statement, is to:

“provide outstanding industrial engineering educational opportunities for regional, national and international students, while maintaining our societal commitment to the development of new knowledge through the integration of research, scholarship and practice.”


Program Educational Objectives:

Within a few years after graduation from the industrial engineering program, alumni are expected to be:

  • successful in the professional practice of industrial engineering
  • effective communicators and  team players, and,
  • involved in professional service and lifelong learning.


Program Criteria:

    • The curriculum prepares graduates to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems

that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The curriculum includes indepth

  • instruction to accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational,and experimental practices.
  • The program faculty understand professional practice and maintain
  • currency in their respective professional areas. Program faculty  have responsibility and sufficient
  • authority to define, revise, implement, and achieve program objectives.

Student Outcomes:

The faculty of the Department of Industrial Engineering actively monitors all aspects of the program to ensure that the objectives are met and that graduates demonstrate the following outcomes:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to 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
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  • the ability to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy.
