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.

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers a minor in Data Science and Engineering (DSCE) for undergraduates (minimum of 4 classes required). The minor contributes to students’ ability to organize, analyze and act upon data, particularly for data associated with engineered systems.

Master's Programs
