The ISE Department offers degrees in industrial and systems engineering (B.S., M.S. and Ph.D.). These degrees focus on the design, operation and management of complex systems, providing students with a blend of technical, management and  human-centered design skills.

Diverse Career Opportunities: A degree in ISE offers career opportunities in a whole host of industries:  manufacturing and production * healthcare * finance * energy systems * retail and distribution * aviation * information technology * marketing * education.

Career Satisfaction: As a result of the richness and diversity of these career paths, according to a University of Chicago study, the occupation “industrial engineer” is in the top 10 of America’s happiest people when it comes to job satisfaction.

High Employment Rates: Our students have exceptional employment opportunities that add further value to this degree. For the past 3 years, each year over 82% of our graduates have been hired for jobs within 3 months of graduation.

ISE Foundations: Our program provides students with a strong engineering foundation coupled with core ISE coursework in engineering economics * simulation * optimization * quality control * supply chain management and logistics * project management * manufacturing processes * lean engineering * workplace and facility design * ergonomics * systems thinking * cognitive systems engineering, along with practical experience from internships and capstone projects.

Additional Depth: Students then get added depth through specialization in one of four tracks: Data Analytics and Optimization *  Human-Systems Integration and Design * Management Systems and Operations Research * Manufacturing.  They also can complete additional specializations and minors focusing on: Integrated Lean Six Sigma * Business * Computer Science * Design.
