Dear Students;

Working with humans, materials, machines and equipment, industrial engineering is a discipline dealing with the design, management and continuous improvement of systems with a popular place at home and abroad. In the future, it is certain that Industrial Engineers will still be in demand, as its main goal is to plan, develop and utilize restricted resources and potential in the optimal way.

Department of Industrial Engineering, Atılım University offers student-oriented education and aims to raise graduates who will be successful in all competitive environments in Turkey and abroad, and equipped with the contemporary knowledge in their field.  In order to cultivate these talents in our graduates, our curriculum includes team based projects, presentations and internships.

Various and abundant technical elective course opportunities in the industrial engineering program are also an advantage as they allow our students to pursue careers as industrial engineers in different sectors and/or fields.

Academic works of our faculty are also published in distinguished journals, and thus our department comes out in top ranking compared to similar departments in other universities.

The Department of Industrial Engineering is very rich in terms of laboratory facilities. Our department has three laboratories including: Human Factors laboratory, Systems Management laboratory and Decision Support Systems laboratory. Moreover, it has access to the laboratories of other engineering departments at our Faculty of Engineering. Being a part of an engineering faculty incorporating a number of departments also gives our students an important chance to pursue minor and double-major programs.

The graduates of Department of Industrial Engineering are equipped with necessary approaches, models and techniques to work in both the industrial and service sectors. Industrial engineers have vast employment opportunities in many sectors including production, energy, transportation, health services and banking. The 4-year undergraduate education in the Industrial Engineering program also allows our graduates to work in different management positions such as risk analysts and planning experts.
