In today’s complex and competitive world, industrial engineers are in great demand to design, improve, and operate integrated systems of people, materials, equipment, and energy. The industrial and systems engineering discipline applies fundamentals from the mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences to efficiently design and analyze large systems that serve industry and government both in manufacturing and service sectors.
The undergraduate industrial and systems engineering program at Rutgers provides students with a broad engineering education along with specialization in the industrial engineering and manufacturing fields. We believe that a broad education is necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global/societal context. The undergraduate program focuses on classroom instruction fostered by learning in multi-disciplinary project-teams. These teams frequently formulate and find engineering solutions to real-world industry problems. The ability to communicate effectively is emphasized by having students provide both oral and written reports.
Students have access to state-of-the-art laboratory facilities where hands-on instruction is emphasized in robotics, machine vision, manufacturing, automated material handling, quality engineering, electronic and sensor devices, simulation, and computer information systems.
ISE faculty members have experitise in a variety of areas and are dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and professional service. They bring experience, real-life industrial problems, and enthusiasm to the classroom, setting a standard for students to follow in their professional careers.
The graduate program in industrial and systems engineering at Rutgers is ranking among the top 25 graduate engineering programs nationwide (U.S. News and World Report). Students receive a strong technical background, preparing them for leadership careers in an exciting and challenging profession.
