Industrial and Systems Engineering Educational Program
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
We expect our graduates, two to three years after graduation, are:
1. Employing their industrial and systems engineering education to design, operate, evaluate, manage, and improve integrated systems of people, machines, technology, materials, information, energy, financial, and/or natural resources.
2. Expanding and enhancing their professional skills and knowledge on an ongoing basis.
3. Effectively communicating opportunities and solutions that improve the well-being of their organizations, communities, and society.
4. Working effectively and ethically as leaders, members of teams, and as individuals to create cultures of inclusivity, engagement, service, and diversity within their organizations and communities.
The program’s student outcomes support the program educational objectives. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering. Student outcomes in the ISE program are as follows:
1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
