Industrial Engineering
About The Industrial Engineering (IE) Department:
The IE Department was established on October 19, 1986. Since then, about 3000 qualified industrial engineers had graduated from the department. The average annual admission rate is around 130 students for the BSc program and 15 for the MSc program, with a total of nearly 800 full time students.  The department has 24 faculty members who are active in their fields of specialization. The IE Department promotes supporting experiments to complement the taught theory through six continuously updated laboratories.
The graduates of the IE Department have demonstrated a proven professional record in both private and public sectors not only in Jordan but also in the region. The high reputation of IE graduates has made them to constitute the finest engineers in many governmental and industrial establishments in the gulf countries. Also, the strong theoretical background of our graduates has enabled many of them to join post graduate programs in high reputation universities in USA, Canada, and Western Europe. They either take academic research posts in those countries or return as an academic and research work force in local and regional academic and research institutions.
What is Industrial Engineering?
Industrial engineering is a broad professional discipline concerned with designing, implementing and controlling efficient and effective production systems that produce both services and/or physical products. It is 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.
Department Programs:
In addition to the undergraduate program, three master programs are available: Engineering Management, Maintenance Engineering and Quality Management, and Design and Manufacturing. Such programs are developed to effectively prepare students for taking-up management responsibilities and leading roles in manufacturing and service industries.
