"Do I have to think of everything?!!" That's usually an exasperated outburst to someone who isn’t doing his share of the mental lifting. To an industrial and systems engineer, however, it’s a job description, because this person has to think of everything, a project's technical specifications, how to determine what's causing a glitch, and how to fix it.
Prepare to take on the world
The world runs on systems — transportation systems, food-supply systems, communication systems, government systems, and too many more to mention. These huge systems need men and women with the special talent to ensure they run smoothly. They need "big picture" people — industrial and systems engineers.
That need is steadily increasing as the world’s resources continue to shrink and cost effectiveness becomes paramount. Right now, the demand for industrial and systems engineers is actually greater than the current labor pool. That’s one reason why CNN Money Magazine ranked system engineering the #1 job in America.
With an outlook this exciting, you need a program that gives you every advantage in training for the real world before you graduate. The University of New Haven program does that. Collaborating with each other, our engineering faculty, future employers, students, alumni, and business and industry professionals designed and built an innovative program that teaches you to:
- Apply your knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering in designing engineering systems
- Design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data to improve operations and systems
- Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints — in other words, the economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability factors
- Function on multidisciplinary teams and communicate effectively
- Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
