The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree program will begin at FMU in January 2014. This program begins following extensive internal study and at the request of the Pee Dee area businesses. It is governed by the Department of Physics and Astronomy at FMU. Graduates of this program will complete a 122-credit hour course of study that include instruction in physics, high-level mathematics, business, and engineering. The program also features a partnership agreement with Florence-Darlington Technical College that will allow students access to the manufacturing laboratory facilities housed at FDTC's Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing Technology (www.simt.com).
