Masters in Industrial Management in North America 2017. Program Mission The master’s program of industrial engineering has a mission to educate leaders and managers with the knowledge and tools to enable them to assist any organization to continuously improve its system and processes. Their training will allow them to benefit organizations by reducing operational cost while providing superior quality services and products. Role of Industrial Engineers The role of the industrial engineer is to effectively and efficiently utilize software technologies, machine tools, math and scientific concepts, and human resources in order to solve problems, provide products or services at minimal cost, and produce on time at the optimum output level to satisfy customer demands. The industrial engineering master’s program (MSIE) at Bradley is designed to broaden the career paths of our students in manufacturing fields, financial organizations, health care and service industries, entertainment enterprises, government occupations, or non-profit industries. An education at Bradley offers knowledge regarding not only increasing profits based on continuously improving the sector’s system, but also reducing waste and product defects for increasing productivity. A list of possible industrial engineering careers for master’s degree holders are outlined, but certainly not limited to, the following: Industrial engineers at UPS are the world’s best communicators, as they train drivers to understand the importance of production and delivery output, use queuing theory to design on-time package delivery systems, and devise simulations or supply chain tools for their system integration tasks. Industrial engineers at Disney Parks ensure accessibility for Disneyland customers and enjoyment of the most value-added time in each attraction with minimal lead time. Further, the implementation of green systems is formulated to meet the needs of customers. Industrial engineers at Caterpillar, John Deere, or Boeing design best facility and process plans for new products, provide manufacturability analyses, and create cost analysis process planning. Industrial engineers in these organizations are also taking leadership roles in conducting life-cycle management and green engineering initiatives toward environmentally-friendly projects. Industrial Engineers at the Mayo Clinic re-engineer facility and process planning for the emergency room to reduce both patient waiting time and doctor/nurse travel time. These efforts eventually minimize heath cost and maximize throughput. Industrial engineers also use ergonomic principles to create flexible beds and chairs to accommodate the varying needs of patients. Industrial engineers serve as managers in small and medium-sized industries because they understand the management of people and resources, internal and external customer perspectives, effective communication skills, and important business practices and ethics. Most of all, they have the ability to continuously improve the entire system, from working with materials, tools, and technologies to successfully managing staff and human resources. Educational Development for Future Success MSIE at Bradley not only provides a self-constructed program of study for each student based on his or her career interests, but also encourages graduate students to conduct research projects to expand their knowledge in a specific field. The independent research and project management skills gained through this type of training are considered key core competencies of engineers in any organization. MSIE students will be encouraged to begin research projects early in their academic training in order to foster interactions between faculty and students and increase chances for industry or federal agency-funded projects.
