Industrial and systems engineers specialize in coordination, planning, and control. Industrial growth has created unusual opportunities for the industrial and systems engineer. Due to increased emphasis on automation and productivity, coupled with higher levels of systems sophistication, there is a high demand for engineering graduates with broad interdisciplinary backgrounds.
Industrial and systems engineering prepares students for industrial practice in such areas as product design, process design, plant operation, production control, quality control, facilities planning, work system analysis and evaluation, and economic analysis of operational systems.
Students are prepared to use engineering principles to solve problems encountered in environments and situations that require a quantitative basis for decision making. Such decision making requires the application of economics, operations research, statistics, mathematics and engineering analysis, with dependence on the computer. The industrial and systems engineering curriculum provides the preparation necessary for graduate study.
The mission of the undergraduate program is to provide top quality, state-of-the-art education in Industrial and Systems Engineering and to foster leading-edge instruction. The program seeks to be nationally recognized by our peer institutions and by key employers of industrial and systems engineering graduates.
The minimum requirements for unconditional admission into the baccalaureate program of the department are an overall grade point average of 2.0 and a 2.5 grade point average in the designated pre-engineering technical courses. Students who have not met these requirements at 60 hours may be admitted on a probationary basis upon successful petition.
Normally, technical elective credit is restricted to approved upper-division courses in engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics and business. Provision is made for receiving up to three credits for approved co-op and internship experience, as part of the Integrated Product and Process Design (IPPD) sequence, for certain courses taken as part of advanced ROTC and for other approved courses.
To count toward graduation, a grade of C or better must be earned in the human systems requirement, each required statistics course and each required course in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department. Students earning less than a C must repeat the course as soon as possible. Statistics or department courses taken as electives do not fall under this rule.
The registrar precludes registration in ISE upper-division courses for students who do not have the necessary prerequisites. It is the responsibility of each student to complete the necessary prerequisites. Further, students are expected to take courses in a timely manner, as recommended in the example 10-semester course plan below. Taking courses in a timely manner is monitored, and failure to do so can result in remedial action when necessary.
Industrial & Systems Engineering
Please seewww.ise.ufl.edu for the most current departmental policies.
If you do not place out of ENC 1101, take it in the fall.
1Acceptable course work in microeconomics: the sequence ECO 2013 and 2023, or the single course ECO 3101. These courses satisfy social and behavioral science general education requirements. ECO 3101 should be deferred until completion of EIN 4354 and ESI 4312. Admission to ECO 3101 may require instructor approval. If ECO 3101 is taken, one credit accrues to technical elective.
2Students with insufficient backgrounds in physics may be denied direct entrance into PHY 2048. Students should take a lower-level course such as PHY 2020. After successful remediation, they may enter the physics sequence: PHY 2048, 2048L, 2049 and 2049L.
3Please see the program assistant in the ISE Department for proper section number.
4There is no course named Human Systems. This requirement can be met by courses with significant human factors content, such as EIN 4243. Adviser approval is required.
5EIN 4321, Industrial Energy Management, can be substituted for EML 3007, Thermodynamics.
6The curriculum requires 10 credits of technical electives. Students are encouraged to select technical electives that are related to one another and provide the student with expertise in a concentration area within Industrial and Systems Engineering. Several minors are available to students that provide such a theme. A flyer describing available minors can be obtained from the ISE Department’s program assistant for student records.
7Students are encouraged to participate in the Integrated Product and Process Design (IPPD) program, which requires six hours of course work and is offered as a sequence of two 3-credit courses during fall and spring of the senior year. This course involves multidisciplinary teams of engineering students who work closely with an industry liaison engineer to design a new product or process for an industry sponsor. The first of these courses is an approved substitute for 3 credits of technical electives while the second course in the sequence is an approved substitute for the capstone design course (senior project) EIN 4335.
8In the spring semester EIN 4335 will be offered as Emulated Product and Process Design (EPPD), a course in which multidisciplinary teams of engineering students design a new product and associated processes using concurrent engineering tools.
