Program Description:

The Department of Biomedical, Industrial and Human Factors Engineering offers an undergraduate program in industrial and systems engineering leading to the Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering. The Industrial and Systems Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org (http://www.abet.org/) . This program emphasizes the evaluation, design, and improvement of complex systems. The program recognizes the central role of people in such systems, as both operators and beneficiaries, and provides the breadth of knowledge necessary to design systems from a user centered perspective. The curriculum provides a broad basis in mathematics, science, and engineering including core courses in industrial engineering, operations research, manufacturing, and the human aspects of system design. Students are trained through a collection of traditional engineering courses as well as industrial and systems engineering topics. Core industrial and systems engineering topics include probability and statistics, ergonomics, system design, optimization, simulation, production systems, engineering economics, human factors, and usability engineering.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments and to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering and scientific solutions in a global and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
  • An ability to use techniques/skills/modern engineering tools

Wright State’s ISE program will produce industrial and systems engineers who will:

  • Objective 1: Engage in a career path in ISE or a related field.
  • Objective 2: Participate in life-long learning through continuing professional education.
  • Objective 3: Work in a team environment and communicate effectively, both written and orally.

The Industrial and Systems Engineering program emphasizes a broad background in user-centered design within an industrial and systems engineering framework. In the capstone course sequence, students work in teams with a client from industry to identify and solve a real real-world design problem.

Graduates of the program pursue careers in a wide range of settings including: manufacturing, health care delivery, supply chain systems, information systems, aerospace, consulting, and telecommunications. In addition, students may choose to continue their education in graduate school.

Graduation Planning Strategy


The Graduation Planning Strategy (GPS) has been created to illustrate one option to complete degree requirements within a particular time frame. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to adjust this plan based on credit already earned, individual needs or curricular changes that may not be reflected in this year’s catalog.
