What Is an Industrial Systems Engineer?

Industrial systems engineers use all the modern resources, management and manufacturing techniques they have at their disposal:

  • Materials that provide the building blocks of products
  • Machinery that drives the manufacturing processes
  • Facilities that house resources
  • People who manage the process
  • Capital that funds your organization

U of R's broad industrial systems engineering program teaches you to use each one effectively to achieve goals, including:

  • Quality control
  • Reliable finished products
  • Cost-effective manufacturing processes

Our graduates go on to work as:

  • Design Engineers
  • Ergonomics Engineers
  • Facilities and Equipment Engineers
  • Industrial Engineers
  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Robots Engineers

Why Study Industrial Systems Engineering at the University of Regina?

Getting your bachelor in industrial systems engineering at the University of Regina means having access to lab equipment to:

  • Test the expansion of a perfect gas
  • Program robotic workcells
  • Examine material fatigue

Make close connections with your industrial systems engineering professors — with access to a full-time lab instructor for the lab portion of any industrial engineering degree course. Industrial systems engineering labs include:

  • Thermodynamics Lab: Study the transfer of heat through equipment like a thermal power plant with a steam engine and refrigeration system. Our industrial systems engineering students even design and build their own hydronic lab equipment.
  • Process Engineering Lab: Features engineering equipment like a packed absorption column, chemical reaction system, pump station rig, water cooling tower and fluidized bed dryer.
  • Materials Lab: Use metallurgical polishing stations and a microscope with software for studying metal microstructures.
  • Manufacturing Lab: Contains everything you need to apply your industrial systems engineering degree knowledge to real manufacturing process, including the latest KUKA Robotic Workcells (with a vision system), CNC lathe and mill, and 3D printers.

University of Regina's professors and faculty members bring expertise and pursue leading research in topics like:

  • CO2 capture and greenhouse gas controlling technology
  • Sound and wave propagation
  • Acid gas removal from natural and flue gases
  • Development of greener fuels
  • Greenhouse gas mitigation
  • Artificial/computer sapience
  • Robotic arm motion planning
  • Artificial neural networks

I began my career with SaskEnergy in 1999 as a co-op student while completing my Bachelor of Applied Science Industrial Systems Engineering degree at the University of Regina. I joined SaskEnergy full-time in 2001 and since held roles in many areas of the company, including System Integrity, Engineering and Operations. In my current role, I'm responsible for the engineering, integrity and construction of SaskEnergy facilities.

Prospective students should consider the engineering program, as it really is a path to unlimited opportunities, only limited by your own creativity. The Engineering Program at the University of Regina creates a solid base that sets you up for getting into everything from small to large businesses, research or even starting your own business.
