Program Educational Objectives

 
Alumni of the Industrial and Systems Engineering Program will achieve careers of technical excellence and demonstrate professional leadership in the workplace and society through:

  1. Applying the discipline’s body of knowledge to the design and management of systems, products, and processes by working effectively with multiple constraints, understanding the importance of time and cost;
  2. Contributing meaningfully to team efforts in the workplace, understanding the economic, societal, and ethical impacts of their decisions, and communicating effectively with all stakeholders in these decisions; and
  3. Adapting to changes in technology and our global society over the course of their professional lives by continuous learning through varied work assignments, advanced degrees, professional training programs and independent study.

The Program Educational Objectives have been developed with close attention to their consistency with, and support of, the declared missions of the Department, College and University. The relationship between the PEOs and these various missions is illustrated in the table below.
