Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering


In order to develop the capacity for students to handle basic engineering problems, the industrial engineering curriculum provides a background in calculus, statistics, computing, psychology, accounting and economics. Physics, chemistry, engineering graphics and engineering science round out the areas of study among the prerequisites for the core courses in the department. Core curriculum subjects include statistical methods and experimental design, linear programming and optimization, stochastic processes, work measurement and methods engineering, computer simulation, human factors engineering, manufacturing processes and inventory control. A capstone course in which teams of students define and solve an actual industrial problem completes the core curriculum.
