Purdue Industrial Engineering has played a critical role in the history of the industrial engineering profession. From fostering development of computer simulation methodology to intelligent manufacturing, we have been revolutionizing IE all along. The grand challenges facing society today are forcing us to once again look for new ways to “Rethink IE”.

Celebrate Grissom and ReThink IE

Purdue University's engineering programs have been ranked among the best in the country in U.S. News & World Report's school rankings.

The Purdue University Schoool of Industrial Engineering ranks #3 (undergraduate) and #8 (graduate) in the nation's top 10 specialty rankings. Part of our excellent position is due to ReThink IE, an innovative approach to engineering education. Included in this initiative was a bold "rethinking" of our historic building, Grissom Hall, in 2014-15.

Watch our Celebrate Grissom video to learn how Purdue IE is reimagining our program to produce industrial engineers of 2020 and beyond!
