Department of Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering aims to foster professionals able to maximize the productivity and efficiency of systems through the scientific design, operation, and improvement of systems comprising humans, goods, equipment and information from all sectors of society and based on the knowledge of engineering and management science-based thinking. It is an academic area which looks into ways we can control and direct the various fields comprising industrial systems. Industrial engineering could be personified as the field commander leading his troop or 'industry' to victory in battle, the editor who revises the articles of many his reporters at the 'industry' daily newspaper, the baseball coach who puts his players wearing the uniform of the 'industry' team in the right fielding positions and batting order, or as the conductor of the 'industry' orchestra.

The objective of the Department of Industrial Engineering at Konkuk University (KU) is developing excellent communication skills and management science-based thinking needed for the maximization of productivity and efficiency of systems integrating humans, resources, equipment, and information. For this purpose, our mission is to produce outstanding professionals capable of demonstrating leadership abilities in areas related to the development of our future society.
