Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

Alumni of our program should have the following accomplishments:
  • Have the technical expertise necessary for the broad practice of Industrial and Systems Engineering. This includes analytical, computational and experimental expertise and the ability to integrate and synthesize their expertise to solve complex problems, which may have elements that are ambiguous or uncertain.
  • View technical problems from a systems perspective with attention to human, business, equipment, materials, energy and information aspects and with appreciation of global and societal contexts.
  • Be effective communicators of technical ideas through oral and written media and be effective members and/or leaders of diverse teams.
  • Participate in life-long learning in a changing global environment and its effect on the practice of industrial engineering with concern for ethics, diversity, currency of expertise, as well as social and contemporary issues.
  • Participate in service activities as a professional, ethical, responsible citizen of the world.
