Industrial and management systems engineers focus on productivity and quality improvement. They looks at the "big picture" of what makes society perform best--the right combination of human resources, natural resources, and man-made structures and equipment. Professionals in this field bridge the gap between management and operations, motivating people in addition to determining what equipment, computers, etc., should be used and how they should be used.
The Department offers a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering; master's degrees in industrial engineering, industrial hygiene, and safety management; and Ph.D. programs in industrial engineering and occupational health and safety. Our faculty work extensively with students in such areas as communication skills, personal growth and development, creation of summer internship opportunities, a senior capstone project experience, and permanent job opportunities. Scholarships are available.
Historically, most industrial engineers started their careers in manufacturing facilities but this trend has been changing. Today about half of our graduates are employed in the service sector while the other half begin their careers in manufacturing. View employment outcomes.
