The industrial and systems engineering curriculum prepares industrial engineers to design, improve, and install integrated systems, that is, systems where people, materials, information, equipment, and energy all interact. Three concentrations are available: in manufacturing systems, in information systems, and in an individualized concentration. Students complete a minimum of 128 curriculum hours and receive a bachelor of science in engineering (BSE) degree in industrial and systems engineering.
What sets industrial and systems engineering apart from other engineering disciplines is its broader scope. An industrial and systems engineer deals with people as well as things and relates to the total picture of productivity improvement (productivity in simplest terms means getting the most out for the least put in). An industrial and systems engineer may be employed in almost any type of industry, business, or institution, from retail establishments to manufacturing plants, government, hospitals, and others.
