To ensure that ISE students are prepared and ready for the workforce, the curriculum has been designed with an emphasis on group projects that involve students tackling real industry problems. Through these projects, our students are exposed to the challenges faced across various industries. In addition, they are trained on how to efficiently come up with practical solutions and gain a better appreciation of what it means to be an effective team player.The core principle of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) centers around solving real world problems and optimizing existing solutions via a systematic approach backed by data and experience. ISE undergraduates are trained to undergo and utilize rigorous research and data analysis to come up with innovative and efficient solutions.
A key feature of our program is that all our undergraduates will undertake a two semesters project where they will be attached to a company as consultants to study and analyze an actual industrial problem. The students will work closely with a company representative to understand the problem and develop practical solutions to address it. At the end of the project, students will present their findings and recommendations to the company’s management. Through this project, our students demonstrate the value that they can bring to an organization. It is not uncommon to hear of students receiving job offers at the end of their projects.
