Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering (B.Eng.IE)


One-year QQI validated top-up degree at NFQ Level 7

Designed in association with the Institute of Industrial Engineers the qualification is a one-year part-time learning top-up degree at NFQ Level 7 validated by QQI. It provides key competencies in the area of Industrial Engineering and related subjects. These skills are vital in the effective management and efficient organisation of a multiplicity of national and international organisations. The programme aims to teach participants how to analyse and improve business processes, how to improve productivity, efficiency, profitability (where applicable), how to provide more choice to customers, how to reduce response times and how to improve quality.

Industrial engineers are prime sources of management talent. They make decisions concerning the best use of people, material, equipment, and energy in achieving an organisation’s aims. To accomplish the best use of resources, the industrial engineer systematically collects analyses and arranges factual information to fulfil management’s needs. These are critical skills, especially where resources are scarce.
