    Head of the Department

    The Department of Industrial and Production Engineering (IPE) was established at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) in 1994. It is to be mentioned that IPE Department of SUST offered the B.Sc. Engg. (IPE) program first in Bangladesh followed by IPE Dept. BUET. Along with undergraduate program IPE, SUST has been running post graduate program (MS (general), M.Sc. Engg. & Ph.D.) successfully. Currently the department is well equipped with highly qualified faculty members with global exposure . The graduates of IPE are capable in making strategic and operational plans for manufacturing and service industries. The curricular of IPE program has been designed in such a way that the graduates build their knowledge, skill and competence to design, develop and implement any production/service system ensuring optimal utilization of different resources. In a nut shell, IPE deals with development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated system of people, equipment, energy, materials and processes. Without true industrial development in various sectors, socio-economic development is not possible. IPE graduates should be the pioneers to the drive of wheels of economic development of our nation replacing dependency of foreign experts in industrial engineering and engineering management. Our graduates are doing professionally well in both home and abroad overcoming the challenges to work as policy maker, operations manager, quality expert, design engineer, system engineer, production engineer, industrial engineer, engineering manager and so on.
    IPE department provides congenial and cosmopolitan learning environment so that our graduates can be equipped with upgraded knowledge and skills to become world class engineers as well as to be global citizens.
