Where is the best location for ambulance stations in a metro area? What types of jobs are most suitable for elderly people? How do you schedule cases to operating rooms in a hospital? Industrial and systems engineers determine the most effective ways to answer some of the world's most pressing questions.
Our undergraduates take courses in areas of production planning, engineering economics, computer integrated manufacturing, facilities design, human factors and ergonomics, simulation, operations research, statistics and quality control.
Students complete a capstone internship project at a local company such as General Mills, Cameron, General Motors, and Catholic Health Systems.
Our students can also enhance their education and attractiveness to employers through a Minor in Manufacturing, Six Sigma Certification, or five-year BS/MBA program.
Our bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Our graduates work in Western New York, across the U.S., and internationally. Recent placements include:
