Industrial Engineering - BS

Industrial and systems engineering is a discipline devoted to the design, installation, improvement and control of integrated systems of people, materials, and facilities across a wide range of organizations that produce goods or render services.  Like other engineering fields, industrial and systems engineering is concerned with solving problems through the application of specialized knowledge in mathematics and science, as well as the principles of engineering.  Two major distinctions of our discipline, among the engineering disciplines, is the unique focus of industrial and systems engineering on human factors and the quantification and systematic removal of uncertainty from production systems.  Industrial and systems engineering has five major focus areas: advanced manufacturing, operations research, data sciences and machine learning, health and human systems, and systems engineering. 

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.
