Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. Industrial Engineering draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. In a developing economy, Industrial Engineers play a crucial role, often as leaders in teams that design, implement, operate and optimize increasingly complex systems of people, capital, information, equipment and energy.

Mechanical and Industrial Engineers often collaborate, particularly in the field of manufacturing engineering, to ensure that a system of people and manufacturing equipment generate products from a supply of materials efficiently.

The Industrial Engineering program offered by the Department is ABET accredited. It is designed to produce graduates who can become future leaders for industry, academia, government and the society in Oman; and whose vision is founded upon fundamental knowledge, creative and analytical skills, local/regional perspective and ethics. Through a blend of course work and projects, the Department tries to inculcate in students the ability to apply knowledge of science, mathematics and engineering to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, provide leadership and technical expertise, and practice engineering with concern for society and environment. The engineering development skills are obtained through a series of project-oriented courses, while the needed practical experiences are achieved through a dynamic collaboration between MIE department and the industries in Oman and abroad.

To graduate, a student is required to complete a total of 136 credit hours resulting in the award of a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree. The credit hours are allocated to University, College, and Program requirements. The Department requirements include 77 credit hours of core courses and 12 credit hours of elective courses.The degree plans give the complete information.

In the Final Year Project (FYP), Industrial Engineering undergraduate students undertake a major project that enables them to design and implement it based on the knowledge and skills they have already gained from their bachelor degree courses. The main objective of the project is to provide students an opportunity to apply course-based knowledge to a moderate level engineering project, and gain the experience of product/system design. The project is of five credits, and is divided into FYPI (2 credits) and FYPII (3 credits) during their last two semesters. This FYP can help our society and business in solving challenging problems and can add value to existing industrial operations. The topics of the final year projects are proposed by the faculty members to target the problems in daily industrial operations and businesses. Students work in groups on a specific topic to achieve practical knowledge as well as team experience. The project titles, student names and supervisors for some recent FYPs are given below:
