Industrial EngineeringIndustrial Engineering6

The Industrial Engineering IE department was established on October 19, 1986, by a Council of Deans decree number 39/86. The main objective behind the decree was to extend the role of the University of Jordan in the scientific and social development both in the local and regional sectors. Industrial Engineering (IE) is abroad professional discipline concerned with designing efficient and effective production systems that produce both services and/or physical products. It concerned with combining and integrating all resources to achieve the production objectives with the best way of resources utilization. Basic production resources include; Manpower, Machines and systems, Materials and supplies, Money and capitals, and Management and information. Industrial engineering has had many definitions given to it.

The American Institute of Industrial Engineers (AIIE) defines industrial engineering as concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, equipment and energy. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. [Handbook of Industrial Engineering, Gavriel Salvendy Editor

The origins of industrial engineering can be traced back to many different sources. Fredrick Winslow Taylor is most often considered as the father of industrial engineering even though all his ideas where not original. Some of the preceding influences may have been Adam Smith's treatise The Wealth of Nations, published in 1776, Thomas Malthus’s Essay on Population, published in 1798, David Ricardo’s Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, published in 1817, and John Stuart Mill’s Principles of Political Economy, published in 1848.

No history of industrial engineering would be complete without mentioning Fredrick Winslow Taylor and Gilbreth family. Taylor is probably the best known of the pioneers in industrial engineering. Frank Bunker Gilbreth and his wife Dr. Lillian M. Gilbreth worked on understanding fatigue, skill development, motion studies, as well as time studies

Enrollment in the IE department started in the 1st semester of the academic year 1987/ 1988 with [25] students. Currently, more than 800 students from more than 10 countries enrolled in the following undergraduate and graduate degree programs:

-          B.Sc. in industrial engineering

-          M.Sc. In industrial engineering / Engineering management

-          M.Sc. In maintenance engineering and quality management

-          M.Sc. In industrial engineering / Design and Manufacturing (currently deactivated)

EAC-RGB-B-S.jpg

ABET accreditation is ISO 9001:2008 certified, making this accreditation one of the few worldwide accrediting agencies to receive this distinction. This accreditation applies for the graduates of the years starting from the year 2014 and through the year 2022. 


The department offers two programs leading to the B.S and M.S degrees in electrical engineering. The B.S. program has been carefully structured to give the student enough breadth and depth in the basic fields of electrical engineering, allowing further specialization during the fifth year level. During this last year level, the student is offered a choice of options in Electronics, Communications and Power Systems and Control. The M.S. program in Communications, on the other hand, was started in the fall semester of 1982, in response to national and regional needs and as a consequence of the maturity of the B.S. program. The current program offers an M.S. degree in the field of Communications. 
Graduates of both programs have been well received and acknowledged to have received good quality engineering education, and have assumed leading positions in their electrical engineering profession.
