Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering focuses on continuous improvement in quality, reliability, processes, systems, enterprises and achieve operational excellence. They also help major manufacturers manage people and supply lines that crisscross the globe so that all the components needed to assemble a product arrive on time, on budget, in sequence, and to the correct assembly line at the correct plant.


Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering covers operations research, modeling and simulation, quality, reliability, product development, system design, statistical methods, facility planning, work design and standardization, engineering management, ergonomics, finance, supply chain, logistics, healthcare systems and business operations.

Students can involve Industry-Sponsored Projects for their senior design projects for solving company’s product development, process and systems improvement solutions. Some of the senior electives can be applied towards masters in other engineering and non-engineering programs, thus making it possible for you to move fast through the academic career path.

LTU is ranked in the top third of colleges nationwide, by Standard & Poor that provides leaders to America’s most successful corporations. A new Brookings Institution study (2015) has ranked Lawrence Technological University fifth (out of over 6,100 two- and four-year American colleges) in the nation for value added with respect to the occupational earnings power of our graduates.

By nature, industrial engineers have a global perspective, seeing beyond the initial scope of common problems. At Lawrence Tech, the theoretical and practical aspects of the learning process merge, enabling rapid professional achievement. The successful graduate is prepared to develop innovative solutions to global challenges in any industry. In addition, Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering is an excellent beginning to a life of education, providing an advanced problem-solving capability based on process thinking.

Internships + Co-Ops

True to Lawrence Tech’s unique blend of theory and practice, Industrial Engineering students are encouraged to take part in internships or cooperative education (co-op). This opportunity provides hands-on, practical engineering experience that is a distinct advantage when approaching future employers.

Check out some of our students had to say about their experiences with Internships and Co-Ops.
