Mission

The Department of Industrial and Systems 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

The major goal of the Industrial and Systems Engineering program at the University of Miami is to prepare graduates to contribute to the economy by virtue of employment in a variety of industries: manufacturing (heavy and light, traditional and high technology) and service (health care, retail, transportation, logistics, government, consulting, banking, and insurance). In striving to achieve this goal, the objective of the faculty is to provide all graduates with the mathematical, scientific, and design tools required to formulate problems accurately, generate alternative solutions, evaluate those alternatives, and present the best solutions to clients or decision makers in a fashion that facilitates decision-making processes. In addition, superior students are prepared for graduate studies and research. Within the first several years following graduation from the Industrial and Systems Engineering program, graduates are expected to be:

  1. Working as professionals by adding value in any one of the following sectors:
    • Service
    • Government
    • Consulting
    • Retail
    • Manufacturing
  2. Pursuing or holding a graduate degree and/or developing professionally through continuing education, licensure, certification and seminars in a new area or their chosen areas of expertise.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
