"Scientists investigate that which already is; engineers create that which has never been."
"One man's "magic" is another man's "engineering". "Supernatural" is a null word."
Robert A. Heinlein
"The ideal engineer is a composite... He is not a scientist, he is not a mathematician, he is not a sociologist or a writer; but he may use the knowledge and techniques of all these disciplines in solving engineering problems."
Nathan W. Dougherty
Industrial Engineering deals with the design of production, supply and service systems and their continual improvement in response to changing conditions. Industrial Engineers are engineers that are specialized in the best possible design and operation of an enterprise that utilizes resources such as humans, raw materials, machinery, hardware, facilities, transportation, energy, information, money in order to produce a product and/or service according to certain performance objectives.
A relatively young discipline among branches of engineering, Industrial Engineering has an increasing importance in the fiercely competitive environment of the globalizing world. Today, industrial engineers’ areas of employment include the traditional manufacturing sector as well as a variety of others including information technologies, banking and finance, transportation and shipping, food, healthcare services, energy production and distribution, and tourism.
As the Industrial Engineering Department at Altınbaş University, we define and implement our education system according to international standards. In this regard, our primary goal is to educate engineers that will compete at the forefront of various sectors. To this end, the department’s distinguished, young and dynamic faculty aims provide our students with the necessary theoretical and applied professional education, an open-minded and wide-perspectived outlook on life, and a vigilant, inquisitive and enterprising approach to issues and opportunities. Towards this goal, we offer fundamental courses on the traditional topics of industrial engineering as well as advanced courses on topics that have more recently gained importance and are developing rapidly in a curriculum that can be tailored to the students’ individual areas of interest and career objectives. With an educational philosophy emphasizing student participation, project and team work, and case studies with direct connections to real life, we believe that we will offer a distinctive undergraduate program.
Our mission is to place Altınbaş University among the world’s prestigious universities; we thus invite young people from Turkey and different countries of the world to join us at our young Industrial Engineering department.
