In an interconnected and data-driven world, modern society relies on increasingly complex systems. Industrial and Systems Engineering is about improving the efficiency and effectiveness of these systems to solve relevant, real-world problems.

Industrial and systems engineers design, manage, and implement solutions that improve quality, performance, increase customer satisfaction and efficiency, and decrease costs by reducing waste that doesn’t generate value. These engineers need strong roots in engineering, science and the capacity for data analysis.

Our program introduces you to cross-disciplinary, big-picture systems perspectives and knowledge to engineer, develop and maintain complex systems. This rich educational experience offers a broad engineering education and with a specialization in data analysis aspects of the industrial and systems engineering fields.

Students in the Industrial Systems and Engineering program have the opportunity to delve into complex systems study at the Center for Complex Systems & Enterprises (CCSE) Immersion Lab. Students also have an opportunity to interact with world-class researchers from the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) on relevant research topics.
