Industrial Engineering BS

Educational Program Statement

The department supports the mission of the university through its undergraduate program by providing students with an appropriate curriculum and educational experience. The course selection and content remain current through continuous assessment by employers, alumni, faculty and students. Students obtain a broad education that enables them to understand the impact of industrial engineering solutions in a global, social, and environmental context. To accomplish this mission, the industrial engineering faculty, with advice from students, alumni, industry advisory board (IAB) members, and employers, endorse the following program educational objectives:

Program Educational Objectives

The Industrial Engineering Department at Texas Tech University has the following education objectives for students who graduate from this program.

Within a few years of graduation, our Industrial Engineering BS graduates are expected to:

  • Assume professional, technical managerial, or leadership roles within industrial organizations and/or pursue graduate level education
  • Apply knowledge through discovery, synthesis, and integration for the betterment of their organization or society at large.

Student Outcomes

The Student Outcomes define the knowledge and skills that will be mastered by our graduates. To enable Texas Tech industrial engineering students to accomplish the ABET program objectives, the curriculum is designed to assure that students, at the time of graduation, are able to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data.
  • Design, develop, implement and improve a component, process, or integrated system of people, materials, information, equipment, and energy to meet desired needs within realistic constraints (such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability).
  • Function on multidisciplinary teams.
  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • Understand professional and ethical responsibility.
  • Communicate effectively.
  • Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in life-long learning.
  • Know contemporary issues.
  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
