Why Industrial Engineering at UTA

Industrial engineers design systems that merge people, processes, technology, and information to provide services and/or manufacturing products efficiently, productively, and safely. UTA’s Industrial, Manufacturing, and Systems Engineering Department offers focus areas in logistics, human factors, operations research, RFID, systems engineering, micro-manufacturing, and stochastic modeling, optimization, and statistics. Our students gain valuable experience working alongside faculty researchers, completing senior design projects, and working at internships and co-ops, and they make lasting friendships and contacts in dozens of student organizations.

Industrial Engineering Degree Requirements

Industrial Engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington



$9.9 million was awarded to engineering students last year from University, College, and department sources.


Students at internships and coops


The Co-op/Internship Office helps students gain placement in co-op and intern positions that will give undergraduate students practical work experience. Internships are generally completed off-campus during a semester or summer term, while students participating in co-ops alternate between full-time work and attending classes, one semester at a time.

Student participating in research

Research and Projects

Undergraduate students may take advantage of opportunities to work in faculty labs on funded research. In a new program at UTA, students may use federal work-study funds to earn money for such research. Undergraduate students complete a capstone course prior to graduation, working in small groups to apply knowledge to a real-world project or problem, often with financial support from an industry partner.

UTA allowed me to pave my own path. The best thing about having done my undergrad here is the number of additional opportunities that became available to me. This includes lean and six sigma certification classes and opportunities to travel and participate in engineering conferences where I learned about leadership, networking and professional development.
