BSc in Industrial Engineering


BSc in Industrial Engineering

 

The UAE has a fast developing industrial sector along with an already highly developed services sector. The purpose of establishing BSc IE programme at BUiD is to meet the needs of the region in the industrial, manufacturing, service and governmental sectors while maintaining a programme with international standing. The graduate of this programme will be equipped with a wide set of relevant knowledge and skills that will prepare him/her for a job market and prepare them to deal with the design of manufacturing process, human-machine interaction and supply chain management tasks. Thereby preparing a future Industrial engineer who is very flexible which will widen their future options in  private sectors such as airlines, shipping, transportation, manufacturing, courier services and import/export and relevant governmental sectors include public utilities, oil & gas industry, government services, etc.

Additionally, this programme places strong emphasis on project work as most modules have a project component. These projects would require students to identify an industrial/service company, define a problem related to the module's topic, propose viable solutions and present the results. This will build the students' knowledge, appreciation of the practical aspect of theory acquired in class, develop their soft skills of interaction and communication with people of different education levels, and boost their professional and own self-esteem. This approach will boost the students' appreciation of their discipline and improve their involvement in the classroom. This leads to a very positive class dynamics and nurturing academic atmosphere. All of this is done in a programme that is tailored to the UAE and regional needs.
