The department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers three (3) certificates. Please visit below for more information.


Certificate in Healthcare Systems Engineering

The purpose of the Certificate in Healthcare Systems Engineering is to provide students and working healthcare professionals with an introduction to fundamental skills in industrial and systems engineering and a background in healthcare delivery systems and processes. Individuals completing the certificate program will be better positioned to apply systems engineering knowledge and skills to improve overall quality, streamline processes and improve efficiency in healthcare systems. Upon completion of the certificate program, students have the option of applying to the Healthcare Systems Engineering Master of Engineering degree program and applying the 12 certificate credits towards the 30-credit Master’s degree.

Students who have been working for several years, or may not have the expected background, may be required to take refresher mathematics and/or statistic course(s) (e.g. ISE 328 and/or ISE 357) before starting the program to ensure they have the required mathematics and statistics skills.

All courses listed are offered through Distance Learning.

Certificate in Management Science and Engineering

The Certificate in Management Science and Engineering is offered by the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE). The program is directed toward integrating scientific methods with the functional aspects of organizations by investigating the application of quantitative methodology and systems analysis in the context of decision making, risk analysis, economics and cost analysis, production management, and supply chain logistics. This integration provides the students with broad engineering management perspectives toward managerial decision-making in both private enterprise and public administration. A list of the faculty and descriptions of the courses are included in the catalog description of the ISE department. The program is designed to accommodate students who are employed full time. It is possible to complete the certificate with courses that are available through Distance Learning.

Certificate Course Requirements

Each student is required to complete 12 credit hours of courses selected from the set of Management Science & Engineering Certificate Courses to receive the certificate. At least 9 credits must be ISE courses.
