Industrial and Systems Engineers make organized work and human effort more effective and efficient for industry, education and science. The ISE Graduate Program at UF trains engineers in advanced skills to structure and develop solutions to complex problems in real-world systems. We focus training on data analysis and modeling methods as well as design practice across other disciplines of ISE. Master’s and Ph.D. Students can expect to develop world-class capabilities in process, system and human performance measurement, optimization modeling, and methods design and implementation. Our graduate curriculum also provides students with exposure to different application areas including human systems, health systems, production systems, and transportation systems, among others.
