Industrial Engineering Mission, Objectives & Outcomes

Our Mission:

The Industrial Engineering Program is committed to provide a diverse student body with rigorous educational experience that builds on a solid knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals an application oriented knowledge of Industrial Engineering practice and design, and to prepare graduates to function effectively in today's multi-disciplinary, global and rapidly changing work environment.

To accomplish this mission:

IME Program faculty engage in research, consulting activities and service to the profession and local industries and government entities

Students engage in project, internship, co-op and professional and honor society activities

Alumni participate actively in the affairs of the department by providing mentoring services to students and advice to the department

Industry provides internships, co-ops, senior project topics, equipment and advise to the department

If you are interested in studying industrial engineering, NJIT is a great place to do it. Responding to a recent survey, one student wrote "Overall I find the BS in Industrial Engineering program at NJIT to be extremely interesting and rewarding. I am proud to be a part of the NJIT experience and would recommend this institute and its program to others."  The pride of students in the program reflects the pride that the department has for its students. The department faculty always strive to provide personalized attention to students, insure that they make satisfactory progress and eventually graduate, and assist in any way possible with employment opportunities. There is also a group of active recent alumni who provide networking opportunities and act as role models for students.
