Industrial engineering is ideal for those who enjoy both technology and working with people. Industrial engineers frequently spend as much time interacting with other engineers and product users as they do at their desks and computers. Industrial engineers design, optimize, and manage the process by which products are made and distributed across the world as well as the way services are catered for in industries such as banking, healthcare, energy, or entertainment.
Many practitioners say that an industrial engineering education offers the best of both worlds: an education in both engineering and business. Hence, a degree in industrial engineering offers its graduates a significant opportunity for a flexible long-term career.
Because of the flexible nature of the major, the industrial engineering student can gain a breadth of knowledge in many different areas of industrial engineering, including, but not limited to, advanced manufacturing, distribution/logistics, ergonomics/human factors, modeling/simulation, and sustainable design and development. Students may choose free and professional electives for this purpose. Faculty members are committed to high-quality engineering education as well as the program’s educational objectives.
The industrial engineering curriculum covers the principal concepts of engineering economics and project management, facilities planning, human performance, mathematical and simulation modeling, production control, applied statistics and quality, and contemporary manufacturing production processes that are applied to solve the challenges presented by the global environment and economy of today. The curriculum stresses the application of contemporary tools and techniques in solving engineering problems.[/vc_column_text]
Mechanical engineering, being the broadest among the core engineering disciplines, offers the students a wide range of career choices and opportunities. Its strong and broad technical foundation provides opportunities in engineering practice, management positions, research and graduate studies.
The department of Mechanical Engineering at RIT Dubai, established in 2008, has inherited more than 180 years of excellence from its mother program at the Rochester campus. The program is designed to offer students a solid foundation in mechanical engineering fundamentals in addition to knowledge in a wide range of topics such as energy systems, air conditioning, hydraulic machines, design of machinery and system controls among other areas. The program is unique in its hands-on and co-operative training, which prepares the students to graduate directly into their jobs as engineers, and enhances their network with the industry, which reflects positively on their future job opportunities.[/vc_column_text]
THE RIT STUDENT BODY consists of approximately 15,000 undergraduate and 2,900 graduate students. Enrolled students represent all 50 states and more than 100 countries.
RIT is an internationally recognized leader in preparing deaf and hard-of-hearing students for successful careers in professional and technical fields. The university provides unparalleled access and support services for the more than 1,200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students who live, study, and work with hearing students on the RIT campus.Read More
