The Department of Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering (ISE) is one of the newest departments within the University of Illinois College of Engineering. Building on the traditions of the former Department of General Engineering and Industrial Engineering program, ISE prepares students with the combined business and systems engineering education they need to thrive in an enterprise-oriented world. We invite you to join us as we build a powerhouse in industrial and enterprise systems engineering.
Graduates of the Department of Industrial & Enterprise Systems Engineering are leaders in large scale systems design, logistics, and decision making. A sampling of possible research topics include:
The College of Engineering now offers a graduate certificate that concentrates on the principles and practice of systems engineering. Increasingly, engineers in many disciplines are called to integrate subsystems and processes across an enterprise or organization, and doing so requires a set of tools, techniques, and skills. The certificate is directed at students with an engineering background who aspire to rise in technical management and therefore need a more integrative set of planning and decision-making tools. All courses are offered via the Internet using streaming technology. This program is restricted to off-campus professionals and is not intended for those who are in a University of Illinois on-campus degree program.
To earn a Professional Development Certificate, the student must complete three of the following courses earning a B- or higher in each course:
Students are required to maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher for the sequence and receive a letter grade of B- or higher in each course.
Courses completed as part of the Systems Engineering certificate, may be applied to a graduate degree. We currently offer a Master of Computer Science (MCS) and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) online. Up to 12 hours of course work completed prior to being admitted to the Graduate College, with a grade of at least a B, may be petitioned to count toward a graduate degree (courses must be no more than five years old prior to admission to the Graduate College). Admission to a certificate program is not a guarantee of future admission to a degree program.
