Bachelor's degree in dual studies industrial engineering

The Dual Study-Industrial Engineering (DSIE) program offers the student both theory and practice at the same time.

The Dual Study-Industrial Engineering (DSIE) program offers the student both theory and practice at the same time. During 4 years of study, the student spends half of her/his time in partner companies that are interested in employing industrial engineers. Dual Studies is the first educational system not only in Palestine but also in the whole region, which contains cooperation with the private sector through offering the students theory and practice at the same time. Currently, more than 30 companies from north, central as well as from the south of Palestine are official partners of DSIE. The curriculum of DSIE was jointly developed with the private sector during a workshop. This new form of university studies decreases the gap between university and private sector. According to statements of the company’s owners, DSIE graduates have definitely a greater chance to continue their employment in the partner company where they have completed their practical periods. Here, they will not only learn engineering issues but also soft skills and customers’ relations.

Industrial Engineering is the engineering topic that qualifies multifunctional engineers who are capable to handle mechanical (40% of the curriculum), electrical (40% of the curriculum), and basic management tasks (20% of the curriculum). These three topics are necessary for any industrial facility, which means a wider space for employment.

The DSIE program is composed by strong engineering elements with basics in business and management.

Therefore, an industrial engineer should be capable to understand and to work professionally in the following main areas :

  • Mechanical applications and related mechanical applications.(Mechanical Drawing, Statics, Dynamics, Hydraulics, Thermodynamics, Mechanical Machine Design, Maintenance…etc.)
  • Electrical systems and related electrical control systems(Basics of electrical and electronic systems, Electrical Motors & Generators, Control systems,…etc.).
  • Basics in business and management practices(Production & Operation Management, Accounting and Cost Accounting, Sales & Marketing etc.).Industrial Engineers have good opportunities in employment in the following main areas:
