Today, the progress and development of countries in the group of industrial and manufacturing sectors, the leadership of these sectors owes to human resources is capablities. In production units, quality control managers are responsible. The main purpose of this study is to identify the skill expectations of quality control managers according to their role and duties in the excellence of industrial sectors and to analyze the curriculum of industrial engineering in the undergraduate level in order to meet these needs with a pathological approach. The research method is applied in terms of purpose and exploratory in terms of qualitative and quantitative in terms of data collection method. In order to identify the skill expectations of quality control managers, based on the job descriptions of quality control managers and the study of documents and libraries, skill needs are explained with the help of expert opinion polls and to combine skill needs with specialized courses in industrial engineering and determine their importance and coverage. The technique of quality function deployment (QFD) has been used. The results of the analysis show that the lessons; quality and productivity management, statistical quality control, management information systems, production methods and production planning maximum impact and design courses in industrial creation, engineering economics, transportation planning and operations research less role in strengthen the skills of quality control managers. There are also educational gaps in the areas of familiarity with government laws and regulations in the production sector, standardization issues, continuous monitoring of product quality in the industrial engineering training program in universities, which needs the attention of policy makers in this field.
