The world, as we know, is evolving at a rate that most of us can hardly keep up with. What role will future industrial engineers play in sustaining the environment, delivering cleaner energy and improving health care? How can we bring food and clean water to every corner of the world? Where do we fit into the changing needs of security and urban infrastructure?
At Purdue IE, we are leading the way.
Since its founding in 1955, Purdue’s School of Industrial Engineering has played a critical role in the history of the industrial engineering profession. From fostering the development of computer simulation methodology to intelligent manufacturing, we have been revolutionizing IE all along. The time has come to “Rethink IE”.
At Purdue IE, we take great pride in our role as pioneers and leaders, mapping the way for new systems, capabilities and organization and rethinking the future of industrial engineering.
Purdue Industrial Engineering research is expanding beyond our traditional boundaries. Our human factors efforts furthers a deeper understanding of cognition and decision making.
