Industrial and Production Engineering is an engineering fraternity that
is greatly valued internationally. It has been contributing enormously to the improvement of productivity
and operations as well as operating conditions of numerous organizations all over the world. In Bangladesh,
the esteemed arena of Industrial and Production Engineering emanated from BUET in 1981 as a post graduate program
through the establishment of the department of IPE. Full fledged undergraduate program started in 1997.
At present the degrees offered by the department are:
B. Sc. In Industrial and Production Engineering
M. Sc. In Industrial and Production Engineering
Master of Industrial and Production Engineering
M. Sc. In Advanced Engineering Management
Master of Advanced Engineering Management
Doctor of Philosophy
The department is rich in resources, including library and laboratories,
necessary for the development and nourishment of skills necessary for an engineer working in industrial scenarios.
We earnestly emphasize on a healthy and intimate teacher- student relationship so that the true potential of each student
is realized and flourished. The relationship of the department with the local industries is strengthened through various programs such as seminars,
conferences and yearly events. The department of Industrial and Production Engineering aims not only to produce efficient
engineers, but also well educated
conscientious leaders who can contribute to the development of the country through ameliorating our industries.
In Bangladesh, one of the main problems that engineering graduates face while competing with business graduates is the lack of communication skills. At IPE department, we put a heart and soul effort to help our students to be more expressive and communicative. The result of this endeavor becomes evident if we look at the phenomenal capture of the job market by IPE graduates. The graduates of this department are also making their mark and making worthwhile contribution in the industrial sector of Bangladesh. The placement of graduates in the industry has placed this department amongst the top three most chosen departments by the students. The department of IPE considers its students and graduates as its biggest asset who can contribute with an unbound opportunity in both home and abroad.
