Industrial and Systems Engineering


Industrial and Systems Engineers figure out how to do things better by engineering processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. ISEs make significant contributions to their employers by saving money, increasing productivity, and making the workplace better for workers. Industrial and Systems Engineers focus on productivity improvement with respect for the human aspect of work. ISE bridges the gap between management and operations by applying six sigma principles, lean manufacturing processes, principles of organizational improvement, continuous improvement, and ergonomics. The undergraduate degree prepares engineers for challenges in manufacturing or service systems analysis and design. Students in our master's program build on an aptitude already in evidence for advanced professional work in industrial engineering. Our alumni are employed in a variety of industries, businesses and institutions, from retail establishments to manufacturing plants to government agencies to hospitals. The BS, Industrial and Systems Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
