Student Outcomes

B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering program’s student outcomes as defined by ABET are:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics 
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors                
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences           
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts             
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions          
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

The above student outcomes are assessed through a series of skills that are taught in the required ISE courses.

M.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering

  • Apply graduate-level concepts and models in manufacturing and other systems such as health care and education, supply chain networks, warehouses, transportation, reliability, safety, and other engineering problems.
  • Develop information systems and analyze data/big data using statistics and data mining. 
  • Develop expertise in one or more areas of technical specialization.
  • Plan and execute a strategy to test a scientific hypothesis or proposed engineering solution, using prior published knowledge as a foundation.
  • Communicate advanced engineering knowledge and the results of novel research (thesis option) or research and development activities (project option) in professional venues.
  • Develop habits of collaboration, leadership, self-learning/continuous learning, initiative, and ethical conduct.
