Industrial Undergraduate

As an industrial engineer, you’ll learn how to apply science, mathematics and engineering methods, and have the ability to work with people and understand the system perspective in the design of systems operation. Study computer simulation, production planning, operations research, quality control, ergonomics, information systems, project management and more as you work to make society better, safer and more efficient.  

As part of your bachelor of engineering (BEng) degree, you can receive valuable work experience by participating in an optional paid co-operative internship program. In third year, you’ll gain specialized knowledge, including operations research, facilities design, experimental design and quality assurance, data analytics and industrial ergonomics. In fourth year, in addition to gaining knowledge in several areas such as information systems, production inventory systems, service operations management and project management, you’ll work on a dynamic team-based project. You’ll have access to leading-edge labs and facilities, leaving you well-equipped to launch an exciting career.

The industrial engineering BEng degree program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
