About Industrial and Systems Engineering

Industrial and Systems engineers improve, integrate, inform and innovate. While most engineers work with products or processes, ISEs work on a broad range of problems involving both people and technology. Companies seek ISEs for their expertise in understanding, evaluating and improving the performance of entire technical and business systems.
