Use your knowledge of human behaviour, equipment, information and modes of communication to develop processes that work. Industrial engineers are experts in optimization who apply mathematics, engineering and psychological principles to improve productivity, safety and quality. A knack for project management can lead to a career in many different economic sectors.
In the Engineering Design and Manufacturing and Computer Integrated Manufacturing labs, you’ll get practical experience with the tools and equipment you may use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:
Study the fundamentals of manufacturing and industrial systems
Identify trouble spots and develop solutions to improve productivity, quality and safety
Consider human factors when designing manufacturing processes and systems
Apply these disciplines to “human systems,” such as government, hospitals, banks and other service sector organizations
Our program is accredited by Engineers Canada and you’ll graduate eligible to become a registered professional engineer.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Admission is based on applicants’ overall, math and physics CRC indicated above and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC: CHEM 101 or 202-NYA; MATH 103 or 201-NYA and 203 or 201-NYB and 105 or 201-NYC; PHYS 101 or 203 NYA and 201 or 203 NYB.
Students completing a three-year technical DEC in a related field may also be eligible for admission with a minimum of 24 in the math and physics courses required for their CEGEP program.
A-levels: At least two A-level exams CD, C in math, C in physics or
AS-levels: At least 4 AS-level exams with equivalent results or
BTEC: Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma in a related subjectarea with equivalent results
Students without math or physics A-levels may be admissible based on AS-level or iGCSE/GCSE/O-Level exam results. Students should include all their exam results from iGCSE (or equivalent) onwards to support their application.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
After your degree
Industrial Engineering alumni have established careers in a range of fields, including hospitals, banks, airlines, transportation and retail companies. Some have been hired by:
Imagine designing a building that can supply its own energy. That’s one of the key challenges that building engineers tackle every day. As a building engineer, you will find creative solutions to reduce energy consumption, help combat global warming and improve quality of life. You’ll create a synergy between the thermal, structural, acoustic and energy systems of a building by applying the principles civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.
Protect water resources. Design buildings, bridges and tunnels. Improve transportation and traffic flow. As a civil engineer, your expertise in urban and environmental planning lets you guide municipalities to create the structures and systems that have a positive impact on everyday community life.
Build engines. Design robots. Control explosions. As a mechanical engineer, you will create, construct and control machines. Whether it’s a vehicle, an aircraft engine or an assembly line, mechanical engineers know how to fit that square peg into a round hole, and do it with a little finesse.
