Industrial Engineering & Management

Ensuring efficient business processes is a complex and challenging engineering task. The profession of industrial engineering and management is one that involves planning, implementation, and improvement of business processes and integrated systems that contain various diverse resources: work teams, technology, information, materials, equipment, facilities, marketing mechanisms, and more. In an age of dizzying technological and business innovation, this is an interdisciplinary profession that requires knowledge in such diverse fields, such as: mathematical and computational optimization, statistics, information systems, business and organizational processes, economics, and behavioral sciences. In addition to core courses in these subjects, the Technion’s industrial engineering and management program also offers advanced courses in fields, such as: e-commerce, artificial intelligence, and robotics. This scope provides a rich and integrative toolbox that allows program graduates to create and streamline complex business processes that combine technology, people, and the environment in which they operate. The common denominator of all such tasks is that they involve the improvement and increased efficiency of processes at a systemic level, with an emphasis on innovative information technologies.
