About the department
The Department of Industrial Engineering was established in the College of Engineering at Northern Border University in 2007. Studies began in the preparatory year for engineering programs in the fall of 2008. The college celebrated its first graduates from the industrial engineering program in 2013. The department teaches an Industrial Engineering Program. The program grants a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering. The Academic Accreditation Commission has accredited the program for Engineering and Technology (ABET) since 01/10/2016
