Industrial systems involves in the production and manufacturing industry, information and communication industry, transportation and distribution industry, medical industry, and financial industry. Due to growing competition and the continual progression of the technology around the globe, today’s industrial systems are becoming more complex with greater integration among humans, equipment, information and financial resources. In order to maintain a competitive edge in the industrial field, it is essential to harmonize the various aspects of industrial systems. The School of Industrial Engineering at the University of Ulsan aims to teach and research on how to efficiently design, operate, and improve these various systems by utilizing the engineering methodology and technique.

Industrial Engineering is a very attractive and promising area of study in today’s global and digital society. Industrial Engineering is a unique academic discipline requiring broad understanding of both management and production. At the University of Ulsan, we are dedicated to provide in-depth education and excellent research experience. In addition, the Graduate School of Industrial Engineering provides practical knowledge and experience to students based on classes and cooperative research between our university and companies. In this way, our program provides competent engineers in the areas of production systems, logistics, automation, information technology, service management systems, and human engineering.

Educational objectives
Industrial Engineering is an academic discipline that contributes to improving productivity by systematically analyzing, designing, improving, and operating synthetic systems composed of humans, materials, financial resources, and information. The Graduate School of Industrial Engineering aims to foster both competent engineers who will contribute to academic development and professional managers who have analytical skills and planning ability.

1. Broaden and deepen knowledge and understanding
Industrial Engineering mainly involves what is directly related to production system, but our program expands its range into efficient factory management, quantitative business management, and ergonomic design of products. This is done by preparing graduate students to creatively adapt to various fields of work with well-rounded training in not only mathematical techniques needed for industrial planning and general management, but related disciplines including computers, applied mathematics, statistics, business administration, and economics.

2. Cultivate field adaptation ability
By field oriented education and research, graduate students can readily adapt to work in various fields with deep knowledge on Industrial Engineering.

3. Establish the right attitude and values
By encouraging students to have a challenge and dedicated attitude towards Industrial Engineering, graduate students can establish the attitudes and values of professionals who will contribute to the local and global development of the engineering field and to their success in career after graduation.
