Industrial Engineering - BS

The four-year curriculum in industrial engineering at Texas A&M is designed to provide students with a solid basis in mathematics and science, as well as in engineering economics, manufacturing systems, production and inventory control, operations research, quality engineering, simulation, human factors and informatics. The program culminates with a senior design course in which students apply principles and knowledge acquired through the curriculum to an actual industrial problem.

The freshman year is identical for degrees in aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, electronic systems engineering technology, industrial distribution, industrial engineering, manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology, mechanical engineering, multidisciplinary engineering technology, nuclear engineering, ocean engineering, and petroleum engineering (Note: not all programs listed are offered in Qatar). The freshman year is slightly different for chemical engineering in that students take CHEM 101/CHEM 111 or CHEM 107/CHEM 117 andCHEM 102/CHEM 112. Biomedical Engineering also requires a two semester sequence of chemistry courses consisting of CHEM 101/CHEM 111 or CHEM 107/CHEM 117 and CHEM 102/CHEM 112.  Students pursuing degrees in biological and agricultural engineering should refer to the specific curriculum for this major. It is recognized that many students will change the sequence and number of courses taken in any semester. Deviations from the prescribed course sequence, however, should be made with care to ensure that prerequisites for all courses are met.
