The Industrial and Systems Engineering (INSY) curriculum draws on specialized skills in the mathematical, physical and social sciences to develop a student's ability to deal with economic, technical and human performance considerations in design and analysis and control of industrial and service systems. The curriculum provides a solid core of courses in systems analysis and design along with courses in ergonomics and economic analysis. Design experience is integrated throughout the curriculum starting in the sophomore year and culminates in a one semester senior design project in which students apply their knowledge to the solution of real world problems. Technical and departmental engineering elective courses provide flexibility in the program.
The degree provides graduates with broad and flexible career opportunities with industrial, consulting, service or governmental organizations. The degree can also provide the foundation and background for further studies in engineering, business, medicine and law.
