ABET Accreditation

The undergraduate program in industrial engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org).

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate students in science and practice of industrial and systems engineering. We prepare our students to communicate clearly and to be good collaborators and effective leaders. We motivate students to think critically and to continue their professional and personal development beyond graduation. We aspire to graduate industrial and systems engineers who have the confidence and initiative to tackle the challenges of this century.

Program Educational Objectives:

Within a few years of graduation, our graduates will:

  1. Continue learning,
  2. Lead and inspire others, and
  3. Engage in community and society.

Student Outcomes

Outcome 1: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

Outcome 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

Outcome 3: An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

Outcome 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.

Outcome 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

Outcome 6: An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

Outcome 7: An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
