Industrial Engineering Technology (IET)

Diploma Degree in Industrial Engineering Technology (IET)

Degree Description
The Industrial Engineering Technology program prepares graduates with knowledge, technical, analytical, and managerial skills necessary to develop, implement, and improve integrated systems in manufacturing and service industries that include people, materials, equipment, information, and energy. The total credits required for graduation are 65 credits, normally achievable within two years of full-time study.
Program Educational Objectives

The Industrial Engineering Technology Program is designed to prepare students for continued learning and successful careers. Within few years of graduation, our alumni are expected to:

  1. Apply analytical and problem-solving skills to address and solve technical problems.
  2. Effectively communicate, collaborate, and lead in diverse teams.
  3. Advance their professional competencies to progress in their careers or pursue further education.
  4. Consistently adhere to ethical values and exhibit social awareness in their professional endeavors.
Student Outcomes

The Industrial Engineering Technology program adopts the “Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology – Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission” (ABET – ETAC) student outcomes. Graduates of Industrial Engineering Technology must demonstrate:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  2. An ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline;
  3. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  4. An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results; and
  5. An ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
Career Opportunities
Graduates will be prepared for careers in system design, integration, and manufacturing, as industrial technicians, engineering aides, plant maintenance personnel, production and planning assistants, designers/draftspersons, and technical salespeople. These jobs are abundant in the oil and gas, electric power, water, and transport industries.

The Industrial Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET,, under the General Criteria and the Industrial Engineering Technology Program Criteria.
