Industrial Engineering - 5-year Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Finance

Industrial and systems engineering has a long-standing history and unique place among engineering majors as the academic discipline responsible for the economic viability of productive systems across industries. Industrial engineers are keenly aware of the goals and objectives of the enterprise. Additionally, industrial engineers receive a core curriculum in the rigorous underpinnings requisite for the quantification of uncertainty and the mitigation of financial risk to the enterprise. This 3+2 degree ensures that the successful graduate from the Mays School of Business, department of finance, has a solid background in both the stochastic processes used to characterize and model the uncertainty coupled with the financial acumen requisite to ensure the economic viability of the enterprise. Students of the industrial and systems engineering program will take advantage of a series of internships and practicums that expose the undergraduate to various facets of financial stability and instability in industry. This program will produce a select and skilled group of industrial leaders that will take their place in the industrial world ensuring the viability of productive organizations around the globe.

The freshman year is identical for degrees in aerospace engineering, architectural engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, electronic systems engineering technology, environmental engineering, industrial distribution, industrial engineering, interdisciplinary 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, biomedical engineering and materials science and engineering degrees in that students take CHEM 119 or CHEM 107/CHEM 117 and CHEM 120.  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.
