  2. Design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy.

  3. Contribute as informed, ethical, and responsible members of the engineering profession and society as a whole.

  4. Continue lifelong professional development throughout their career.

  5. Collaborate and communicate effectively with others as a member or leader of an engineering or multidisciplinary team in an international setting.

Student Learning Outcomes

Industrial engineering graduates from the University of Minnesota Duluth will have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
