Program Educational Objectives

Within five years of receiving their degree in Industrial Engineering, our graduates will:

  1. Discover a professional career path that matches their strengths and passions and, in turn, provides them the incentive to apply their academic training, critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities to address current and future societal challenges. For those graduates who continue in an Industrial Engineering career, they will add significant value in one or more of a wide variety of enterprises by applying the appropriate tools and methodologies to design and implement solutions that improve organizations, systems, operations and processes.
  2. Be curious and pursue opportunities to learn new skills, technologies, and methods that keep them engaged in their chosen career as resourceful and innovative problem solvers that serve their communities well.
  3. Strive to be good stewards of the environment and treat all people with dignity and respect, in part by developing the requisite expertise and cultural competency to listen to, learn from, collaborate with and advocate for others in their project teams, organizations and communities.
  4. Recognize they have a special responsibility to be ethical and truthful, effectively and accurately communicating both the strengths and limitations of their scientific observations, engineering designs and societal-based efforts in order to help themselves and others to make well-informed decisions.

Student 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.
