Overview

The systems to which industrial engineering techniques can be applied are quite diverse. Typically, industrial engineers have worked in manufacturing systems, but the methods have found applications in many other systems, including distribution centers, information systems, hospitals, transportation networks, and financial systems.

To prepare our graduates for their job responsibilities, the primary objective of the Industrial and Systems Engineering program is to produce engineers who are able to apply ISE tools and knowledge to support, improve, manage, develop, design, or implement a project, process, or system that has a positive impact on relevant key-performance indicators, such as financial results, productivity, quality or safety. We want our graduates to actively seek to be leaders among their peers by demonstrating a professional attitude; a commitment to integrity and ethical behavior; effective communication across stakeholders; and engagement in life-long learning.

Opportunities Upon Graduation

Graduates of the Industrial and Systems Engineering program at Ohio University find employment in a wide variety of industries. Fields include manufacturing, distribution, health care, transportation, and more. Due to their systems training and experience, many industrial and systems engineers move into management positions after a few years on the job.

Salaries are competitive, and, because of the increasing need for organizations to improve productivity to keep pace with competition, the need for industrial and systems engineers in manufacturing and other fields is projected to remain strong.
