The field of Industrial Engineering brings together the various sciences concerned with technology, the production of goods, performance of services and the way in which people work. Industrial engineers integrate human, information, material, monetary, and technological resources to produce quality and cost-competitive goods and services in a healthy and efficient work environment.

Industrial Engineering covers a broad spectrum including production planning and control, manufacturing systems and processes, facilities design, human factors, occupational safety, quality control, systems reliability, and systems analysis and design with a strong emphasis on advanced computing.
