Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) applies basic engineering skills from mathematics and the physical sciences, specialized analysis techniques, and an understanding of how people interact with machines and each other to design and evaluate the performance of systems in industry and in the service sector. Examples of the types of systems that may be analyzed by ISyEs include health care delivery systems, product distribution systems, and manufacturing systems. The factor that most distinguishes ISyE from other engineering disciplines is the attention devoted to human involvement in the systems being analyzed. Educational Objectives The ISyE program seeks to develop graduates who: Have established careers in Industrial & Systems Engineering in industry, service, consulting, or government organizations Design, develop, implement and improve integrated industrial and service systems to achieve organizational goals Collaborate with others as members or leaders of engineering or multidisciplinary teams Continue to develop skills in engineering, business, management, or other Industrial & Systems Engineering related fields. To achieve these objectives, the ISyE program has been designed to ensure that graduates have achieved the following outcomes: a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data c. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability d. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility g. an ability to communicate effectively h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning j. a knowledge of contemporary issues [in the profession] k. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. Coursework in the ISyE program emphasizes the process of developing analytical models for systems and using computer-based techniques to explore ways in which the systems can be made to function more efficiently. The upper-division ISyE courses emphasize the general principles of designing and evaluating systems and the application of these principles to many different types of systems. The ISyE major student is expected to be involved in professional aspects of the field. Since the engineering profession places a high value on professional society involvement, students enrolled in the Industrial & Systems Engineering major are expected to be active student members of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE).
