Virginia Tech College of Engineering Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Industrial and Systems Engineering is similar to other types of engineering in its concern with solving problems through the application of scientific and practical knowledge. What sets Industrial Engineering apart is its reliance on an integrated systems approach and application over a broad scope, including:  people, technology and organizational assessment and improvement.

The Grado Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) recognizes that a strong educational foundation is the key to a successful engineering career.  All of our students are taught by distinguished faculty.  The faculty and staff of the ISE Department are dedicated to maintaining the high set of standards necessary to deliver a quality education.

The Master of Engineering Administration (MEA) degree provides practicing engineers, scientists and technical professionals with a graduate level academic experience that further prepares them for career advancement --- in the role of managing and providing administrative support for the technology-based operations of a progressive enterprise. This experience includes the analysis and solution of management problems using scientific and mathematical methods. A variety of practical graduate level courses in engineering administration, industrial and systems engineering, business and operations management is available to qualified degree candidates from diverse backgrounds. Graduates of this program typically move into advanced positions as project manager, program administrator, lab director, engineering manager, technology executive, etc. The MEA program is a practice oriented master's degree that stresses the application of theory, principles and techniques related to engineering administration and performance management. All students take a primary core of required courses that address program and project management, capital resource management, operational planning and control, technology management and assessment-based planning for the enhancement of enterprise operations and competitive performance. Students are also provided with an understanding of how to profitably employ the services of technical professionals such as the systems integration engineer, human factors engineer, manufacturing systems engineer, operations research specialist, management systems engineer, information systems specialist, etc. Administrative and technical electives provide an opportunity to include courses in the business administration and applied engineering science in a personal plan of study.

The Systems Engineering graduate program leads to either a Master of Science (MS) degree. It is designed primarily to enable engineering practitioners in specialized fields (e.g., aeronautical, ocean, civil, electrical, mechanical and industrial engineering) to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the practice of professional engineering. It is presumed that a student entering the program already has a solid foundation in some specialized field of engineering (or the equivalent) and wishes to broaden his or her technical knowledge base. Thus, students in the program continue to pursue a chosen technical specialty while also selecting courses of personal interest in other engineering areas. Specialty tracks, or areas of concentration, may include any field of engineering including, for example, civil, electrical, mechanical and industrial engineering. Further, there are required systems engineering courses that provide the tools for integrating these various specialties into an overall "systems approach." Upon completion of ten courses with a B average or better, including a capstone project course, the student receives a master's degree in systems engineering.

The program objective is to present a broad interdisciplinary perspective of systems and the numerous considerations necessary in the engineering development of systems. Program requirements include the successful completion of a minimum of 10 courses (30 semester hours) with a B average or better.

The graduate course work and research orientation within the OR option is designed to educate the student in the process of constructing suitable analytical models for problems arising in various applications, using or developing appropriate (computerized) solution techniques for analyzing these models, and translating the results to implementation in practice. Toward this end, a series of courses have been designed that first provide a student with a knowledge of the tools of OR, followed by courses dealing with different areas of application in which such tools are utilized. The methodological courses cover optimization, stochastic systems modeling and analysis, and Monte Carlo simulation methodology. The application-oriented courses include a study of queueing networks, inventory systems, supply-chain systems, logistics, forecasting, quality assurance and reliability engineering, facilities design, sequencing and scheduling, and production planning and control. The OR faculty also operate and maintain a pc-workstation-based computer laboratory to support computational needs in the areas of optimization and simulation.

Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that integrates many different engineering specialties into a total engineering effort to ensure an efficient and effective product (system) output. Systems engineering analyzes the operational needs of industrial, business, and government enterprises and applies scientific and engineering technology to develop the integrated hardware and software required to meet those needs. A systems engineer is one who can apply the team approach to the process of bringing systems into being and can define their various components, identify, and integrate the engineering disciplines needed to develop them and understand the system's operational and maintenance requirements for the entire consumer-use period.
This degree is part of the Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program through Virginia Tech.
