The department offers four degree programs, two undergraduate in Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering and two graduate in Engineering Management and Systems Engineering. Both the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Each program prepares the students for both engineering practice and for graduate study. The Industrial Engineering major is concerned with the most effective methods of utilizing and integrating people, materials, and equipment in both production and service organizations. The Manufacturing Engineering major is concerned with the most effective ways of designing and developing manufacturing systems. It is possible to major in both Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering. Interested students should contact their academic advisors or the department office.

Students desiring to major in either Industrial or Manufacturing Engineering should have a particularly high aptitude for science and mathematics, and incoming freshmen should have taken substantial college preparatory courses in these disciplines in high school. Incoming transfer students should have completed at least one year of college calculus and one year of college physics (with laboratory) prior to beginning the program at Cal Poly Pomona. The community college student planning to transfer into this department should consult a school counselor or this department to determine which courses meets the program requirements.

Graduates of the program are prepared to do productive work in their first jobs as well as to grow with their profession throughout their engineering career. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for direct entry into the engineering profession as well as graduate school.

The department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is concerned about the success of its graduates as they matriculate into the industrial world and during their careers as engineers. The department is also concerned about its curricula: Does it meet the demands of industry and the profession? For these reasons the department conducts both formal and informal outcome assessments of the progress of its graduates and the value of its curricula. Assessment is conducted by quarterly interaction with its Industry Advisory Council, by surveys of its graduates, and by surveys of the employers of its graduates. As areas needing change are identified, they are carefully considered by the faculty, prior to the implementation of any changes. Curriculum changes are made through the normal change channels, and the results are monitored for effectiveness. In this manner the department is able to assure itself that its curricula are state-of-the art and remain so.
