Bachelor in Industrial Systems Engineering

General

Program Description

The industrial systems engineer is an engineering generalist with specialized training in understanding, controlling and monitoring engineering systems. This program will train you to organize and effectively use all resources of modern manufacturing and process industries, including materials, machinery, facilities, people and capital. You will study the principles of heat transfer, computer-aided engineering, and fluid mechanics.

Sample Courses

Simulation of Industrial Systems, Human Factors Engineering, Manufacturing Process and Machinery, Industrial Machine Design, Computer-Aided Engineering.

Our Program

The Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE) program is designed to train engineers to organize and effectively utilize the total resources of modern manufacturing and process industries: materials, machinery, facilities, people, and capital.

Graduate with:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Industrial Systems Engineering.
  • Students in Co-operative Education graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Co-op) in Industrial Systems Engineering.
  • Students in the Internship Program graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Internship) in Industrial Systems Engineering.

The ISE program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

What ISE Students Do

All engineering students take a common initial core program consisting of the basic maths and sciences needed by all engineers, plus introductory design courses.

Our ISE students study the strength of materials, principles of heat transfer, computer-aided engineering, and fluid mechanics, as well as process modeling in manufacturing industries and lean manufacturing. Students apply prior knowledge to machine design through simulation studies. Advanced studies in process engineering, control, operations management, and manufacturing are also strong program elements.

What sort of career could you have?

Industrial Systems Engineers typically work in the following areas or hold the following job titles:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Automated Systems
  • Design Engineer
  • Ergonomics Engineer
  • Facilities & Equipment Engineer
  • Industrial Engineer
  • Manufacturing Engineer
  • Petroleum Industries
  • Process Control Engineer
  • Process Engineer
  • Production Engineer
  • Quality Control Engineer
  • Robotics Engineer
