Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering

With the onset of the Industrial Revolution came the need for technically trained people who could visualize, plan and organize large and complex systems. Industrial and systems engineering emerged as a profession to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of these operations. Since its inception, industrial and systems engineering has grown to encompass a wide variety of occupational areas including manufacturing, logistics, financial, and healthcare institutions.

Accreditation
The program of study leading to the B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering (BSISE) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org). 

ABET Program Educational Objectives
The objectives of the BSISE program are to produce graduates who: 
  1. apply technical and business skills based on industrial and systems engineering principles for a variety of employers in the manufacturing and service industries; 
  2. apply systems engineering methods and information technology tools; 
  3. lead and function in interdisciplinary, culturally and/or globally diverse teams; 
  4. contribute to their communities, the profession of industrial and systems engineering, and the University; and
  5. engage in lifelong learning, including the pursuit of graduate studies.
ABET Student Outcomes 
The student outcomes, measured in terms of the knowledge and skills the graduates of the BSISE program are expected to demonstrate at graduation are: 
  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; and 
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
