Mission

The Department of Industrial Engineering’s mission is to provide contemporary and relevant industrial and systems engineering education and research; impart knowledge and skills necessary to design and to improve a variety of manufacturing and service processes; promote life-long learning; and contribute to emerging societal needs.

Goals

Advances in knowledge and an increasing concern for society with its complex needs have led researchers into areas that can no longer be encompassed by a single academic discipline. There is an increased tendency for faculty and students from different disciplines to work together in a variety of laboratories, departments and centers that cut across disciplinary lines. In order to facilitate such interaction, highly qualified students may pursue a privileged course of graduate studies. The program is designed for the truly exceptional student, is built around the student, and brings together the particular interests of two or more disciplines.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Graduates will demonstrate an ability to apply knowledge and methodology to advanced problems in Management of Technology.
  • Graduates will demonstrate an ability to write effectively about advanced Management of Technology topics.
  • Graduates will have an ability to present their findings effectively about advanced Management of Technology topics.
