Engineering Real-World Solutions

Our programs are taught primarily by Ph.D. faculty dedicated to teaching and research. Some courses are taught by experts from local industry. The active research interests of the industrial and manufacturing systems engineering faculty include, integrated product design and ergonomics; intelligent manufacturing, simulation modeling; quality engineering;  information and health care systems

IMSE Department currently offers two bachelor degree programs and one concurrent degree program. Please visit the program pages to learn more about requirements.

Undergraduate Admissions

Undergraduate IMSE Scholarships

IMSE Department offers three named scholarships for students studying for an undergraduate degree in either industrial and systems engineering or manufacturing engineering at the College of Engineering and Computer Science. All three scholarships grant $2,000 per year award for two years for a total award of $4,000.  Learn more about available IMSE scholarships.

Cooperative Education

Engineering students are eligible to participate in the College of Engineering and Computer Science's Cooperative Education Program. During co-op placements engineering juniors or seniors alternate semesters of full-time classes with semesters of full-time paid engineering work in a company or organization they have applied for. Co-op students gain valuable professional work experience in engineering before they graduate; they earn a salary and also establish contacts useful for later employment. Co-op students in industrial and systems engineering have found recent co-op placements in such companies as the Automobile Association of America, Brass Craft Manufacturing, EDS, Ford, Masco Corporation, St. John's Hospital, and United Parcel Service.
