Degree Programs in Industrial and Systems Engineering

Undergraduate Degree Program

The ISE department offers an undergraduate curriculum in Industrial and Management Engineering (IME). The first two years of this curriculum provide a strong foundation in basic science, engineering science, mathematics, and the humanities and social sciences. These two years are oriented toward the quantitative (mathematical) approach. Computer-based technology, including simulation, computational modeling, and systems design, is emphasized.

Ph.D. in Decision Sciences and Engineering Systems

The ISE doctoral program prepares students with the ability to create and apply new mathematical, computational, and statistical approaches to novel, cutting-edge applications of ISE. This fact allows our Ph.D. graduates to pursue successful careers within academia, industry, and government.

MS/MEng in Industrial and Management Engineering

The Industrial and Systems Engineering Department offers the Master of Science and Master of Engineering degrees in Industrial and Management Engineering.

Systems Engineering and Technology Management (SETM)

The School of Engineering and the Lally School of Management at Rensselaer jointly offer a unique 30 credit hour Master of Engineering (ME) degree in Systems Engineering and Technology Management (SETM) administered through the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department (ISE). The unique feature of this program is the fusion of a management/decision sciences core with the student’s undergraduate engineering discipline.
