Doctor of Industrial Engineering (D.Sc)

School of Science and Engineering
Atlantic International University

The Doctor of Industrial Engineering (D.Sc) objective is to help students develop of theoretical and practical tools that can be used to solve problems in industry and government fields. The Industrial Engineering program prepares graduate to pursue careers in research institutes, academia, and public agencies or industrial and business organizations. The Industrial Engineering program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced industrial engineering graduates and professionals in the industrial engineering arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process industrial engineering skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.

AIU’s Doctorate degree in Industrial Engineering goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.

Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in Industrial Engineering will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.

Important: Below is an example of the topics or areas you may develop and work on during your studies. By no means is it a complete or required list as AIU programs do not follow a standardized curriculum. It is meant solely as a reference point and example.
