Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research (B.S. IEOR) program is designed to prepare students for technical careers in production or service industries. It provides a strong foundation for those intending to go on to specialized graduate study in operations research, industrial engineering, or business administration.

The core of the program includes: basic science mathematics, including probability and statistics engineering optimization and stochastic models. This forms the methodological foundation for upper division IEOR electives involving the analysis and design of production and service systems, information systems, and human work systems and organization, among others.

The BS in IEOR is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
