ABET Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science Degree in ISE (or BS-ISE) at the University of Florida is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the recognized U.S. accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. ABET was established in 1932 and is now a federation of 28 professional and technical societies representing the fields of applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. For more information about ABET, please visit www.abet.org.

For current degree and enrollment data of our BS-ISE program, see http://www.eng.ufl.edu/education/undergraduate/accreditation/.

Mission Statement:

The mission of our BS-ISE program is to provide a top quality, state-of-the-art education in industrial and systems engineering and to foster leading-edge instruction. The program seeks national recognition by peer institutions and key employers of industrial and systems engineering graduates.

Educational Objectives:

The objective of our BS-ISE program is to produce graduates who

  • Will be successful professionals in industrial and systems engineering or other disciplines,
  • Can acquire advanced knowledge through continuing education or advanced degree programs, and
  • Can become active leaders in their profession and/or community.

ABET Student Outcomes:

Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering uses outcome scorecards to directly assess whether students achieve the following ABET student outcomes.

a- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b- Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c- Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
d- Function on multi-disciplinary teams
e- Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
f- Understand professional and ethical responsibility
g- Communicate effectively
h- Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i- Recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
j- Know contemporary issues
k- Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

Each scorecard requires instructors to provide the following information concerning each outcome to which a course contributes.

    1.       Description of the mechanism(s) to assess the outcome.
    2.       Explanation how each mechanism assesses the outcome.
    3.       Criteria for students to successfully achieve the outcome.
    4.       Evidence that the outcome is achieved.

Item 4 above is direct evaluation of student work in the course and serves as material to be included in an outcome folder.  Our process for evaluating success in meeting outcomes requires an annual review of the outcome folders and information from the other assessment methods by our Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.  The output of this review is a report to the faculty and ISE Industrial Advisory Board, along with proposed actions to address areas of concern identified in the review.

Below is a list of courses along with the required scorecards.
