Dunwoody Industrial Engineering Technology Degree

Graduates from engineering drafting, machining, electronics, and robotics programs are eligible to transfer into Dunwoody’s bachelor’s completion degree in Industrial Engineering Technology. Take courses in the evening and gain the degree and skills needed to move from technician positions into engineering and management roles at your company.

Coursework focuses on the processes and systems that lead to more efficient, better quality manufacturing. Learn how to analyze situations and put together solutions at all stages of the industrial engineering process—from supply chain to quality control.

Arts & Sciences courses as well as hands-on collaborative projects will enhance your communication, mathematics, and critical thinking skills, making you a valuable asset in the job market.

In your final semester, you will complete a senior capstone project, giving you the chance to demonstrate real-world industrial engineering experience to active professionals and industry leaders.

While most graduates use their bachelor’s degree to enhance or improve their current work situations, some go on to pursue master’s degrees in such fields as engineering management, manufacturing engineering, business administration, and technology management. Recent examples include graduates accepted into programs at Arizona State University, University of Wisconsin-Stout, and the University of St. Thomas.

” I found the hands on, practical approach the most beneficial about my education at Dunwoody. I learned things that I could apply right away when I started my new position. Even before I finished the program at Dunwoody, I felt well prepared to start a role as a manufacturing engineer. “
