Students At Graduation


The department thanks the corporate projects sponsors, students and faculty mentors for making senior design a great experience. The department congratulates Ana Maria Moreno, Jason Higgins, Jesus Perez, Manuel Martinez, and Faculty Mentor Dr. Tokgoz for being named the best senior design project in the IE department. The team developed software to compute and record quality levels for a corporate sponsor. The department also congratulates Cristopher Villanueva (IE), his two electrical engineering teammates, Derek Cook andTy Tamplin, and faculty mentors Dr. Liu and Dr. Tokgoz for being named the best interdisciplinary project. The team designed and built a low cost Articulator Robot for under $2,000. Ideas from two other senior design projects are being implemented at their corporate sponsors (5/7/2019).

Lamar University Bachelor's Degree in Engineering Ranked #1 for Best Value. 

Lamar University Engineering, specifically the online 2+2 Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree option, was ranked #1 for best value by SR Education Group, an education research publisher founded in 2004. SR Education Group recently published their 2019 Best and Most Affordable Online Engineering rankings using a combination of annual tuition, accreditation, and PayScale mid-career salary data to determine the best online colleges across the nation. Lamar University’s relatively low tuition of $7,440/year and a high median mid-career salary of $111,100 led to their #1 ranking. Payscale.com ranks LU Engineering #5 for return on investment.

The Department of Industrial Engineering at Lamar University offers an online 2+2 option for students to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE). This online program option allows students to complete the final two years of an Industrial Engineering degree online with minimal travel from home. The online program option is designed for students who are unable to attend a traditional IE program due to geographic location or scheduling issues, and is equivalent to the traditional in-class degree option also offered by LU. Additionally, the program offers a lower cost approach to becoming an Industrial Engineer. Our on-campus students can also benefit from this online 2+2 online option by enrolling in the same online courses while they are co-oping, interning, or even working full time in industry.

Lamar will be hosting the 2019 IISE Student Regional Conference at Lamar University. The dates are February 28th – March 2nd, 2019.

Dr. Curry was awarded the Dr. Anita Riddle Excellence in Engineering Teaching Fellowship. (October 2018)

Twenty-six students are enrolled in senior design this year. The students are working on six industry sponsored projects and three research projects. Topics include designing assembly lines, 5S, quality control, capacity planning, low cost robot design, outreach at a non-profit, simulation modeling of retail markets, and design of outpatient medicine clinics. (September 2018)


Five of seven Master's program graduates in summer 2018 completed MS Thesis Projects. These projects provide graduate students the opportunity to research a specific topic and develop a focus area for entering the job market. We wish all of our graduates well. (August 2018)
