Industrial Systems and Information Technology

The School of Operations Research and Informatin Engineering offers this minor to provide an in-depth education in the issues involved in the design and analysis of industrial systems and the tools from information technology that have become an integral part of the manufacturing process. Students will become familiar with the problems, perspectives, and methods of modern industrial engineering and be prepared to work with industrial engineers in designing and managing manufacturing and service operations. That is, rather than providing a comprehensive view of the range of methodological foundations of operations research, this minor is designed to give the student a focused education in the application area most closely associated with these techniques.

Students in all Majors except Operations Research and Engineering may participate in this minor.
