Industrial and Systems Engineering Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

The Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) program seeks to develop graduates who:

  • Have established careers in Industrial and 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 and Systems Engineering related fields.

To achieve these objectives, the ISyE program has been designed to ensure that graduates have achieved the following student outcomes:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • 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
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues [in the profession]
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
