Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering


With its focus on reliability engineering, advanced manufacturing, and smart systems, Rutgers’ Industrial and Systems Engineering program prepares the next generation of engineers and technology leaders. An emphasis on combining classroom and laboratory learning with hands-on practical and pre-professional training through numerous research and internship opportunities gives students the experience they need to make safer, cost-effective, and energy efficient products and services.

Connected Community

Our students work collaboratively throughout their studies. Senior design projects give students the opportunity to work in teams to learn about professional practice as they apply their knowledge of industrial engineering to understand and solve real-world problems. Students learn how to structure and implement a design process that considers manufacturing constraints, ethics, and customer needs.

The department also has close ties with industry providing students with access to careers and mentoring.

Faculty members not only serve as academic instructors and advisors, they also offer research opportunities in labs where students can contribute to groundbreaking innovation.
