About Department


The emergence of Industrial Engineering coincides with the end of the 1800s. Industrial Engineering proved its importance in the military field during the World War II and, researchers started to use extensively in the civil field in the following period.

The main task of an Industrial Engineer is to use the limited resources available in the most effective and efficient way for predefined purposes

Industrial Engineering is a leading profession with professionals who design, plan, install and manage integrated production and service systems that realize high performance, reliability, sustainability and cost control. The objectives of this profession are profitability, effectiveness, efficiency, flexibility, sensitivity, high quality, and the continuous improvement of products and services throughout their lifetime.

Industrial Engineering has always been a discipline that integrates different fields. The traditional role of Industrial Engineers is to create systems that transform humanpower, material equipment and financial resources into usable products / services.

What is expected of us today is to use information, technology and computers effectively to operate and control integrated systems.


To determine and implement the optimum resource composition required for the business, to enable communication between management and other functions of the business, to take part in human resources management, to offer viable alternatives to the decision maker, to carry out planning and control works in various fields of activity.
