BS in Industrial & Systems Engineering

The Industrial & Systems Engineering program is a combination of Industrial Engineering & Systems Engineering. Industrial engineering is concerned with design, improvement and implementation of integrated processes of people, processes, information, materials, management and equipment.  Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary and structured approach to designing and deploying successful systems to blend engineering, systems thinking, and management topics.

  • Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe career and professional accomplishments that the program prepares graduates to achieve during the first few years following graduation. Graduates of industrial & systems engineering will: 

    1. Demonstrate a balance of industrial and systems engineering knowledge to meet industry expectations for design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, machines, materials, information, energy, and logistics.
    2. Practice critical thinking to solve problems, communicate effectively, and adapt to changes.
    3. Apply to lifelong learning and continued professional development.
  • Student outcomes describe the knowledge and skills acquired by students who complete the program. Students completing the industrial & systems engineering program will have:

    1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering (ISYE4900, ISYE3400, ISYE4200)
    2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
    3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
    4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
    5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
    6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
    7. An ability to communicate effectively
    8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
    9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
    10. A knowledge of contemporary issues
    11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
