About the Program

Are you curious about how large-complex systems in organizations and infrastructure operate? Do you like solving problems and working on projects with others? Then the bachelor's degree in Systems and Industrial Engineering can lead you there. Students who enroll in the BS in Systems and Industrial Engineering, learn how systems work in a variety of industries in the public and private sectors (i.e. transportation, health care delivery) and the impact it has on the global environment. This is an interdisciplinary degree that combines engineering, computer science, humanities, and more. This degree program is ABET accredited and can be completed on a part-time basis as well.
