Industrial and Systems Engineering
Description of the Major
Industrial and systems engineering prepares you for industrial practice in product design, process design, plant operation, production control, quality control, facilities planning, work system analysis and evaluation and economic analysis of operational systems. You will be prepared to use engineering principles to solve problems that require a quantitative basis for decision making and the application of economics, operations research, statistics, mathematics and engineering analysis, with dependence on the computer.

This is a nationally accredited ABET program.
Additional information is available from your major's website.
Before Graduating You Must
  • Pass an assessment by two or more faculty and/or industry practitioners of performance on a major design experience.
  • Pass assessment in two courses of individual assignments targeted to each learning outcome. Assessment will be provided by the instructor of the course according to department standards.
  • Complete an exit interview in your final semester.
  • Satisfy the Florida statutory requirements for CLAST.
  • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.
Skills You Will Acquire in the Major (SLOs)
  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering principles to industrial and systems engineering problems.
  2. Design and conduct experiments relevant to industrial and systems engineering processes and problems, as well as to analyze and interpret the data.
