Slippery Rock University's Industrial and Systems Engineering program provides students with the skills, knowledge, and techniques they need for successful careers in engineering. This four-year degree teaches students how to optimize complex processes or systems in a variety of settings. Students learn how to eliminate waste in processes such as materials, man-hours, and machine time. 


Slippery Rock's curriculum provides students with a hands-on, in-depth learning experience covering the major fields of study in Industrial and Systems Engineering-including business process improvement and optimization using current methodologies such as Six Sigma and sustainability.

Our engineering program allows students to enroll in classes such as Engineering Graphics and Six Sigma Methodology in the first couple of years, which prepares them for internships and, eventually, their careers.
