The objective of the Industrial and Systems Engineering credential program is to give students a cohesive specialization in the areas of operations research, industrial and systems engineering, and analytics. The program offers wide variety of courses on theory, modeling, methodology and applications.  The interested student can conduct a research project (ME377K) under the guidance of an ORIE faculty member as part of the program. Students who complete this credential program will be well prepared to enter the workforce or graduate school in operations research, industrial engineering, systems engineering, decision analytics, or related areas.
