To The Top

The graduate program in industrial engineering provides a scholarly environment in which highly qualified, creative students may obtain the knowledge and develop the skills necessary to solve complex industrial, governmental and societal system design problems. These systems are required to operate within increasingly complex constraints, thus requiring the use of sophisticated and creative designs. The industrial engineer responsible for such designs must be capable of applying a broad spectrum of scientific tools if the most effective systems are to be obtained.
