Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Industrial and systems engineers make decisions concerning the best utilization of people, material, equipment and energy to minimize costs and make organizations successful. They are productivity, quality, efficiency and optimization experts. They use sophisticated mathematical and statistical tools to design facilities, processes, supply chains etc., and generate optimal operation plans to produce better products and deliver better services. They are vital for businesses to become and remain competitive within global markets.

Industrial and systems engineering (ISYE) requires strong analytical and creative thinking skills for effective decision-making. Industrial and systems engineers are thought leaders often known for their big picture thinking of any business or enterprise. Their ability to function on multidisciplinary teams consisting of several engineering disciplines offers them a rapid access to senior management positions.

ISYE graduates have the flexibility to work in a variety of sectors including manufacturing, production and operations, supply chain and logistics, transportation, healthcare, and financial systems. Career specializations include: production and operations managers, process engineers, quality managers, operations research analysts, supply chain managers and healthcare managers.
