Lehigh University ISE - students in lab

Thinking manufacturing?  Think again, and think bigger.  ISE is distinctive because its tools can be applied to any business in any setting, from production to services, in either the private or public sector.  Industrial and systems engineers design, improve, and optimize processes, systems, or the products and services themselves.  In today’s competitive marketplace where continuous improvement and cost containment are paramount to survival, this is an extremely critical role.  That is why our graduates are so sought-after.
