Industrial Engineering - BEng

Is it for you?

Industrial engineers create solutions for processes, increasing productivity and managing people. You’ll learn how to develop and improve products, services, processes, information technology systems and work methods. You’ll also learn how to make manufacturing and service systems more productive, efficient, safe and cost-effective. With hands-on training, an opportunity to enrol in a paid co-op program, and an optional specialization in Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship, you’ll graduate ready to offer inventive solutions to real-world challenges.
