Industrial Engineering

Industries in Lebanon and in the region benefit tremendously from well-trained industrial Engineers to develop and implement strategies that help them compete globally.  Industrial Engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design, development, and implementation of integrated systems of humans, machines, and information resources to provide products and services. Industrial engineering encompasses specialized knowledge and skills in the physical, social, engineering, and management sciences, such as human and cognitive sciences, computer systems and information technologies, manufacturing processes, operations research, production, and automation. The industrial engineer integrates people into the design and development of systems, thus requiring an understanding of the physical, physiological, psychological, and other characteristics that govern and affect the performance of individuals and groups in working environments.

In addition to the Faculty course requirements, Industrial engineers receive additional education focusing on the enterprise, System Modeling, Ergonomics, and Operations.  Students also receive complementary education on Machine design, Automation, and Robotics.

Curriculum for the (M.Sc.)

Admission requirements into the M.Sc. program vary as follow:

Students holding a B.Sc. degree with a Cumulative Average of 2.5 or above are admitted into the Master Program where they complete the required courses for the corresponding Master program. Students can then choose between a thesis option of 9 credit hours or a non-Thesis Option of 12 credit hours.

Students with a Cumulative Average below 2.5 in their B.Sc. Degree cannot me admitted into the M.Sc. program unless they obtain the Engineering Diploma with a Cumulative Average of 2.5 or above. Students can then choose between a thesis option of 9 credit hours or a non-Thesis Option of 12 credit hours.

Graduation requirements in the M.Sc. are the completion of 51 credit hours for the Thesis Option and 54 credit hours for the non-thesis option.
