What will I learn?

Use your knowledge of human behaviour, equipment, information and modes of communication to develop processes that work. Industrial engineers are experts in optimization who apply mathematics, engineering and psychological principles to improve productivity, safety and quality. A knack for project management can lead to a career in many different economic sectors.

In the Engineering Design and Manufacturing and Computer Integrated Manufacturing labs, you’ll get practical experience with the tools and equipment you may use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:

  • Study the fundamentals of manufacturing and industrial systems
  • Identify trouble spots and develop solutions to improve productivity, quality and safety
  • Consider human factors when designing manufacturing processes and systems
  • Apply these disciplines to “human systems,” such as government, hospitals, banks and other service sector organizations

Our program is accredited by Engineers Canada and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.

Co-op program

The Engineering Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will work for engineering firms where you may:

  • Evaluate the ergonomics of a work station
  • Develop performance indicators
  • Design a plant layout to accommodate a specific production line
  • Evaluate and identify the best path for internal material flow

In your final year as a Co-op student, you will be capable of performing your tasks in a way that most firms expect from their qualified engineers.

After your degree

Industrial engineering alumni have established careers in a range of fields, including hospitals, banks, airlines, transportation and retail companies.
