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:

Student outcomes are:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
