Undergraduate Degree Programs
The Industrial Engineering Program of DLSU was established in 1971 to fulfill the growing demand for industrial engineers. The degree courses offered by the Department of Industrial Engineering include the following:
Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BS IE)
The Industrial Engineering Program of DLSU was established in 1971 to fulfill the growing demand for industrial engineers. At that time, the name of the program is Industrial Management Engineering (IME) with two options for minors: Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. These two minors were offered because the industry’s need for engineering managers in manufacturing plants. Due to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) directive to standardize all industrial engineering programs in the country, DLSU phased out the minor in chemical and mechanical engineering in 1997 and offered BSIE.
The BS Industrial Engineering program is a disciplined, systematic, and holistic approach to the management of human resources, equipment, materials, capital, energy, information, and its environment. It covers three major areas of study namely; Production and Operations Management, Operations Research or Management Science, and Human Factors Engineering or Ergonomics. It seeks to design and/or improve systems to achieve maximum efficiency, effectiveness, quality, and investment return; minimum waste, losses, and costs; improve employee satisfaction, welfare, and performance; manage impact of business operations in its environment. The BS IE curriculum aims to develop critical system thinkers and innovators in the practice of the IE profession. The curriculum ensures transformative learning to the students in completing their academic units.
BS in Industrial Management Engineering minor in Information Technology (BS IME-IT)
A tracer study conducted by the department in 2000 showed that many graduates of the program had careers in information technology. This led to the offering of the BSIE minor in IT program in 2005. The BS IE minor in IT program combines the training of Industrial Engineering, which emphasizes on designing and improving processes, with creating information systems that would enable business operations achieve high productivity and quality. It also seeks to provide business solutions through information technology that would help manage business effectively and at the same time eliminate waste of time, money, materials and energy.
All major courses under the BS IE minor in IT program are the same courses taken up by the BS IE student except for the electives which include: Visual Basic Programming, Designing Systems, Database Management, Managing IT Projects and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems.
BS in Industrial Management Engineering minor in Service Management (BS IME-SM)
A tracer study conducted by the department in 2000 showed that many graduates of the program had careers in service management. This led to the offering of the BSIE minor in Service management in 2005. The BS IE minor in IT program combines the training of Industrial Engineering, which deals with the design, development, management and improvement of services towards customer satisfaction. It highlights application of service operations management principles in retail, restaurant, banking and health care service systems. It seeks to train students to emphasize on quantitative analysis involving the conceptualization, design, creation, and delivery of services that would lead to minimal waste in time, money, materials and energy. In addition, the program has industry partnership in the field of retail, banking, restaurant and health care systems.
All major courses under the BS IE minor in SM program are the same courses taken up by the BS IE student except for the electives which include: Service Management, Service Management Applications, Retail System and Services, Banking System and Services, Retail System and Services and Health Care System and Services.
Bs Honors / Ms Program for Industrial Engineering
The BS/MS Honors Program caters to all 3 programs in Industrial Engineering. The program consists of 14 terms designed for students with exceptional academic and research skill. The student is awarded both a Bachelor Degree and Master Degree in Industrial Engineering upon completion of all academic requirements. The student starts taking their MS courses on the eighth term.
The student needs to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 and minimum grade in all Math, Engineering Science and Professional Courses of 2.0. Upon entry into the program, students must continue to satisfy these criteria at the end of each academic term. If the student fails to observe the retention requirements, the student will be returned to the regular BS Industrial Engineering program tracks.
