Industrial Engineering Technology Concentration

Effective March 15, 2020, new students are no longer being accepted into this concentration, however similar options are available. Contact Gerry Willis at gtm23@drexel.edu or 215-895-6253 for additional information.

The industrial engineering technology concentration provides students with knowledge and skills in management and relevant engineering technology disciplines for manufacturing, service, and healthcare enterprises, including automation, logistics, scheduling, simulation, maintainability, and advanced manufacturing processes. Students learn how to co-ordinate, integrate, and optimize people, machines, materials, and energy to improve efficiency, sustainability, quality, and environment. 

During the first three years, students of all concentrations in engineering technology take electrical, mechanical, and industrial courses to get a solid, systematic background  in different engineering fields. Students are required to complete general and concentration engineering technology courses, technical electives, and free elective courses that permit students great latitude in tailoring the program of study to match their career goals.
