Industrial and Systems Engineering Curriculum
In order to keep up with the industry and adequately prepare students for becoming Industrial & Systems Engineers, our department continuously updates the curriculum; however, we allow students to begin and end their time in our department with the same requirements they were given during the academic year they were admitted to the University.
