The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) offers students the opportunity to examine complex systems in industry and manufacturing settings, healthcare environments and society in general as they study areas ranging from intelligent systems and fuzzy logic to supply chain management and human factors.
The program encourages faculty and students to work in teams, gathering different perspectives as they problem-solve, create and learn both within the department and through interdisciplinary collaboration across the various divisions of engineering, business and industry.
