The Bachelor of Science in Industrial & Systems Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. This means that our program meets the quality standards set for the programs in the enineering descipline.


Mission Statement

The mission of the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering is to produce graduates with the capability to make systems productive through optimization and integration of processes, resources, and information.


The Goals Set to Accomplish Our Mission

Prepare ISE graduates who are sought after by a wide range of enterprises to lead the development and implementation of integrated systems solutions that balance multiple objectives.

Provide global, national, and regional leadership in the design, analysis, and improvement of integrated systems through collaborative and multidisciplinary research.

Through our graduates and our research, provide systems solutions that reduce costs, increase productivity, and enhance the well being of users.


Program Educational Objectives

Our Industrial and Systems Engineering undergraduate program is preparing our recent graduates to meet the following objectives:

  1. Our alumni will have successful careers strengthened by knowledge of industrial and systems engineering methods and principles.
  2. Our alumni will be emerging or established leaders among their peers.
  3. Our alumni will be engaged in activities of life-long learning and professional development through willingness to take on challenges and learning opportunities.
