Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE)

ISE is distinctive because its tools can be applied to any business in any setting, from production to services, in either the private or public sector. Industrial and systems engineers design, improve, and optimize processes, systems, or the products and services themselves. In today’s competitive marketplace where continuous improvement and cost containment are paramount to survival, this is an extremely critical role. That is why our graduates are so sought-after.

ISE graduates take a “systems” perspective – assessing all of the inputs and outputs, the people, money, machines, information, resources, and time – in order to do things better. Using mathematical models and methods, the industrial and systems engineer makes an impact through critical decision-making.

University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California


The Master of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering is awarded in strict conformity with the general requirements of the Viterbi School of Engineering. This program enhances the technical capabilities of the industrial engineer.

According to the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, they devise how to do things better by engineering processes and systems that improve quality and productivity.

Purdue University - Main Campus West Lafayette, Indiana


Industrial engineers design, analyze, and manage complex human-integrated systems such as manufacturing systems, supply chain networks, and service systems. These systems typically consist of a combination of people, information, material, and equipment. In such systems industrial engineers determine how to optimize the system for maximum efficiency, effectiveness, throughput, safety, or some other objective of interest to the stakeholders of the system.

The complexity of these organizations and the emphasis on increased effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity have led to a growing need for industrial engineering analysis and design, resulting in an increased demand for industrial engineering graduates.

ISE is interdisciplinary: it encompasses engineering, management, human factor.

ISE involves the application of mathematical, computational, statistical, and information science methods to model, analyze, and solve complex decision problems in engineering, business,  and social systems. ISE employs methods of mathematical programming, queuing theory, computational optimization, decision analysis, applied statistics, database systems, soft computing, and discrete event simulation for solving problems related to the design, planning, and operation of complex systems where intelligent coordination is necessary to achieve optimal performance. It is distinctive from management and economics in the use of an engineering approach to design and analyze enterprise processes to optimize performance. It is distinct from computer science in its focus on the design of data and knowledge systems as the organizational nerve center where operations and enterprise systems are integrated.
