Bachelor of Industrial Engineering

Bachelor of Industrial Engineering

Industrialization across the globe in the past century gave birth to the manpower to optimize the production processes. These manpower were called industrial engineers.

But their job was not just limited to optimizing the production process. They took part in overall manufacturing processes as well. Their skills and knowledge were then encompassed with the engineering principles, science, and mathematics to form an education degree, Bachelor of Industrial Engineering (BIE). 

Overview of Bachelor of Industrial Engineering

The BE Industrial course is a multidisciplinary undergraduate program that is focused on better production of goods, spanning a variety of fields related to the production of manufacturing or consumer products. It entails boosting efficiency, lowering production costs, enhancing quality control, guaranteeing employee health and safety, safeguarding the environment, and adhering to factory requirements.

The BE Industrial course in Nepal is a recent degree introduced by the Tribhuvan University, Institute of Engineering (TU IoE) IN 2062 B.S. Currently, Thapathali Engineering Campus affiliated with TU  is the only educational institute in Nepal that provides this degree.   

Assuming that the country's manufacturing growth is still at its pace, manpower in this field will be required in more numbers. Hopefully, there will be other educational institutions that will provide this course.

General Information

Bachelor of Industrial Engineering course is an undergraduate degree in the field of engineering. The total number of semesters in this degree is 8.

Talking about the curriculum, the BIE course was created to produce professionals who would work in Nepal's manufacturing sector and help the country generate more products and services.

The BE Industrial course syllabus is designed to meet that aim. It covers a wide range of related topics and various engineering principles. Below listed are some of the areas that this degree covers:

  • Computer Programming
  • Workshop Technology
  • Material Science and Metallurgy
  • Manufacturing Technology
  • Manufacturing Management
  • Control System
  • Operation Research

Besides these students also learn about plant layout design and operation health and safety, theory of mechanics, production process and technology, and many more.

Along with these areas, students get insight into the manufacturing sector of the country through field visits. They receive vast knowledge of the field through lab and project work.

These topics provide students with the comprehensive knowledge and skills required for an individual to work as an industrial engineer.

Objectives of Bachelor of Industrial Engineering

The BIE course focuses on the optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations through the development, improvement, and implementation of various integrated systems. This is the primary motive of the program.

Here are a few other objectives of the BE Industrial degree:

  • To provide problem-solving skills which are required to find solutions to problems related to complex systems and processes.
  • To equip students with an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying its principle, science, and mathematics.
  • To teach the methodologies required for the efficient use of resources and manage it.
  • To give an insight into the techniques required to obtain the quality as per the standards.
  • To impart knowledge on how to deal with the issues and difficulties that Nepal's industries face.
  • To raise the number of workers who can work in Nepal's manufacturing sector and boost the nation's output of goods and services.
  • To stay informed about the latest technological and methodological developments in the market and how they might be used locally.

Career and Scope of Bachelor of Industrial Engineering

The Industrial Engineering course has a broad scope and offers a variety of opportunities. Given that there are numerous industries across the globe. The graduates can pursue their career in any manufacturing sector that piques their interest.

Below listed are some of the scopes for the course:

  • Industrial Engineer:

This is the most straightforward job prospect for graduates. They can work to optimize processes and increase efficiency in various industries.

  • Manufacturing Engineer:

Any industry has to have someone to concentrate on the manufacturing process, turning raw materials into finished products. Industrial Engineering course graduates can be those individuals.

  • Quality Control Specialist:

Product quality determines various things for the industry from its consumers to its net worth. The output has to be the best and meet the standards that were promised.

The Industrial Engineering course holders can work as quality controllers being responsible for maintaining and improving the overall quality of the product.

  • Project Manager:

With the usage of project management skills and the knowledge of process improvement and efficiency, the passouts can pursue their careers as project managers for the industry.

  • Supply Chain Experts:

Supply chain and logistics is an important factor in an industry. The produced products have to reach the targeted consumers daily.

BE Industrial course scholars can work as supply chain experts. They will be responsible for building and managing supply chains and logistics networks. It will ensure that goods and materials reach suppliers to consumers efficiently.

The undergraduates of industrial engineering courses can pursue their careers in project planning and scheduling, cost management, risk management, data analysis, and many more.

Entrepreneurship is another option for individuals with a business mindset. They can start their own business or invest in industries.

Here are some industries where BE Industrial course students can find jobs.

  • Aerospace & Airplanes
  • Aluminum & Steel
  • Banking
  • Construction
  • Materials Testing
  • Mining Oil & Gas
  • Plastics & Forming
