Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) focuses on achieving best-case scenarios through analysis, design, and control of materials, machines, and behavior. Since the department’s inception in 1956, IOE (or “Industrial Engineering,” as originally named) has expanded from the manufacturing industry into all sectors of the economy. No matter what you want to do, you can do it with a Michigan IOE degree.
