Dual Degree - ME in Industrial and Systems Engineering
Over and above the fact that students are able to complete their Bachelor and Master degrees in an accelerated manner, these dual programs offer a unique opportunity for outstanding undergraduate students to pursue. The combination of these programs provides a synergy that allows students to apply their learning between programs. For example, these programs will allow students to work through the thesis or capstone project process, that includes experiences that undergraduate students are not typically well-versed in, while completing undergraduate coursework (e.g., problem definition of ill-defined problems). Students can then apply these experiences towards some of their higher-level undergraduate courses (e.g., engineering design, project design), that require some of the same skills, and obtain a better understanding and appreciation for these undergraduate courses.
This program provides an applied, practical industrial engineering degree. Industrial and Systems Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems of people, material, equipment, and energy and utilizes skills in statistics, human factors, operations research, manufacturing, systems, etc. This degree will allow a student to gain breadth across several different areas or focus on one area within ISE.
