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:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- 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.
