Industrial and Systems Engineering
Welcome to the Industrial and Systems Engineering Dept.
What do Industrial and Systems Engineers and Engineering Managers do? They figure out how to do things better - by leading the design of products, processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. It's why more and more companies are hiring as well as promoting them in industries such as automotive, energy, advanced and digital manufacturing, healthcare, defense, logistics, service and others.
The ISE Dept. offers the following undergraduate and graduate programs.
- Industrial and Systems Engineering B.S.E.
- Industrial and Systems Engineering M.S.
- Engineering Management M.S. (in cooperation with the School of Business Administration - on campus or online)
- Systems Engineering Ph.D.
- Graduate Certificate in Productivity Improvement
The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering carries out the mission of the School of Engineering and Computer Science by offering an undergraduate major in Industrial and Systems Engineering. The department also offers master's programs in Industrial and Systems Engineering as well as in Engineering Management in cooperation with the School of Business Administration, and a doctoral program in Systems Engineering.
