Industrial & Systems Engineers design, analyze, and control complex systems, such
as manufacturing systems, global supply chain, and service systems. Different from
other engineering disciplines that apply skills to the specific areas, Industrial
Engineering is the only engineering discipline that focuses on optimizing systems
for maximum efficiency, minimum cost, quality improvement, safety, and other interests
to the stakeholders of the system. It saves time, money, materials, energy, and other
resources for the companies, industries, and essentially for our society. The skills
of Industrial & Systems Engineers can be applied in an extremely wide range of organizations.
What You'll Do
- Understand the fundamental concepts required to be a professional in the field, including
concepts in mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering.
- Obtain a more specialized knowledge in industrial management, manufacturing, and engineering
analysis than can be applied to industrial and other complex systems.
- Have the ability to design or optimize complex systems given economic, environmental,
social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
constraints to meet the needs of society.
- Have experience using the techniques, skills, and tools necessary for modern careers
in the field of industrial & systems engineering.
