Frequently Asked Questions


General Information

Industrial Engineering (IE) is concerned with the design, analysis, and operation of systems ranging from a single piece of equipment to large business, social, and environmental systems. Industrial engineers are interested in modeling system functions via the help of emerging computer technology and determining how best to achieve the objectives of the system. 
IUE Industrial  Engineering covers a different concept and content compared to classical Industrial Engineering. Industrial Engineering typically covers human-machine relationships and manufacturing systems, from the perspective of mechanical engineering without thoroughly considering the requirements of de facto information standards, and hence approaches organizational problems through a mechanical point of view. In contemporary enterprises, human-machine-computer (informatics) interactions will inevitably occur and aspects of computer and information systems become important in finding solutions to those organizational problems. Izmir University of Economics traces rapidly changing science, knowledge, research and technology and emphasizes their applications in businesses. As the student progresses through the program, a number of elective courses are available to the student which provide an opportunity for additional study in one of the major application areas of industrial systems engineering, supplementing the material provided through the core curriculum. The major application areas are high-tech manufacturing systems, information systems, and operations engineering.

Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, analysis, and operation of systems ranging from a single piece of equipment to large business, social, and environmental systems. The industrial engineers interest in modeling system functions via the help of emerging computer technology and determining how best to achieve the objectives of the system. 

Industrial Engineering program prepares students for manufacturing and service management and decision support positions in industry and public sector, by equipping them with a broad range of decision making skills for a variety of applications. While acquiring basic, specialized knowledge in their lecture course, students engage in practical lab work through such courses as Hands-on Exercises of Industrial  Engineering, Simulation and Optimization Laboratory, Automated Manufacturing Systems Laboratory and Problem Solving Exercises. In this way, careful attention is paid to establishing a curriculum that encourages students to engage in independent and applied research.

The industrial engineers are interested in modeling system functions via the help of emerging computer technology and determining how best to achieve the objectives of the system. 

Hence;

students, who have analytic and practical intelligence, who can grasp complex systems, who have inquisitive and comparative problem solving skills, who have interest in computer-supported studies and team work, should prefer this department.

For these reasons, the industrial engineers are among the highly-seeked professionals in many sectors, and in companies of any scale. This trend is likely to continue in the upcoming years, as well. This constitutes an exciting opportunity for our prospective students.

Today, industrial engineers, who assimilate information and information technologies during their education and adopt integrated systems approach, are the industry's most sought-after engineers. Our graduates take on leadership roles in business, and take positions in research-and-development and administration in many international companies.

Our graduates aiming academic careers are raised so that they can pursue their master's and doctoral studies in the best universities both in Turkey and abroad, carry out scientific research, and become national and international scientists.

Most importantly, since our graduates are trained as innovative individuals, they are able to develop new technologies and establish their own businesses in manufacturing, service, finance, logistics, and related sectors.

Among the engineering departments, it would not be appropriate to make the distinction between better or worse. Our recommendation would be searching course contents of all engineering departments, investigating areas of their work and choosing the most appropriate one for you.

Engineering provides solutions to real problems. Math and science are used to solve problems. Requires creativity. Group work is important. Has applications everywhere. Economic solutions are required. It is fun.
Industrial Engineering, is an engineering area, that designs and implements systems that ensure the efficient use of tools, knowledge, money, energy and material that are required for production and distribution of services and products.
 
Evening education programs are usually opened to create some additional quota in some state universities and the classes are held after daytime students leave the classrooms and buildings (usually after 17:00). There are no evening programs at our university.
