The curriculum for each degree and/or option in industrial engineering is designed to challenge the thinking of young engineers and to build a strong foundational knowledge of the concepts related to industrial engineering. While the curriculum and requirements vary depending on the degree and/or area of interest, it is our goal for all of our graduates to become visionaries in their careers after leaving Penn State.
