"The best program where theory meets practice! The classes are ever evolving to include the newest developments and technologies in the industry like simulation and human factors engineering... giving an edge to the students, while seeking jobs."

"The MS-ISE/Health Systems program at Binghamton University has provided me with two very important opportunities: (1) to develop a thorough understanding of the Industrial Engineering concepts and (2) a rich variety of real time projects (in the healthcare industry) to apply them.

"With constant guidance from the experience faculty on both the academics as well as industry projects, the program hones all your skill sets. This program can provide students with the ideal foundation whether they want to enter the healthcare industry as a professional, or if they plan to focus on academic pursuits."

“I chose to do my Masters in Industrial Engineering (Health Systems Concentration) at Binghamton University mainly because of its complete academic program and the excellent faculty that supports and encourages you throughout the program. The department provided me with great opportunities to do projects and internships with real healthcare systems in and around the area. This helped me to gain extensive knowledge and experience to enter into the professional world with a strong resume. I would highly recommend my department to anyone who is interested in learning and applying Industrial Engineering techniques in the healthcare arena and beyond."

"I currently work at UHS as a decision support analyst.  The MS/ Health systems concentration helped prepare me for my career by teaching me the analytical skills I needed for the healthcare realm.  The support, advisement and demands of the faculty helped prepare me for my career by teaching me to have an eye for detail, work ethic and preparedness.  The healthcare courses provided adequate exposure to the healthcare system.  The opportunity to work in the healthcare field during my research internship was very valuable in preparing me for my present position."
