Industrial and Systems Engineering is the engineering of decision-making. Our tools can be applied throughout business, science, engineering, and beyond, in both the private and public sectors. Industrial and systems engineers design, improve, and optimize processes, systems, and products and services themselves. In today’s competitive marketplace in which cost efficiency and scarcity of resources are paramount, industrial and systems engineers play a critical role. This is why our graduates are so sought-after.

ISE graduates take a “systems” perspective – assessing all of the inputs and outputs, the people, money, machines, information, resources, and time – in order to do things better. Using mathematical models and methods, the industrial and systems engineer makes an impact through critical decision-making. This is why, over time, our graduates rise through the managerial ranks. | LEARN MORE >>
