Learn to Increase Production Efficiency with an Industrial & Systems Engineering Degree

Are you interested in engineering, but would like to focus more on the business or process side? Our Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering provides training in production design, plant layout, routing, and production mix. Throughout this degree, you will study some of the newest aspects of industrial engineering like examining human factors, production systems and engineering management, business analytics, and business intelligence.

Our data analysis courses focus on helping management connect the critical results of enterprise, such as revenue, low cost, and resource efficiency, to the controllable drivers of enterprise results. Enterprise, in this case, is a project that is difficult and typically takes effort, initiative, and resourcefulness. In this major, you will learn how to analyze data and explain the factors that go into the production of items and goods to your management team. You will also train on how to identify wastefulness in production systems and devise processes that are more efficient.

Our goal is to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to be a positive force in engineering related industries. Our professors seek to know you individually and impart the knowledge and ability they possess to identify and solve engineering problems.
