Industrial and systems engineers, like other engineers, are problem solvers. They design, streamline and improve complex processes and systems for maximum efficiency, whether it be a hospital system, an airport, a manufacturing plant or a warehouse or a global supply chain or a distribution network. Managing the "human element" within these complex systems is a critical part of our discipline and leveraging information and analytics to drive system performance is unique to industrial engineering. Industrial and systems engineers are in high demand in nearly every sector of the economy, from manufacturing and service industries to healthcare, defense and energy. 

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High-Impact Practices of Student Success: hands-on experience, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community engagement.
