Industrial and Systems Engineers are among the most successful engineering professionals because they rely on a combination of technical depth and business fundamentals. ISEs are people who get excited about solving problems - and find the quickest, fastest and best way to meet important objectives. They apply their knowledge and skills to define and improve systems - of people, machines, materials, and energy. There is a great demand for ISE professionals in the United States and internationally, with US starting salaries in 2010 between $55,000 and $65,000.
ISEs discuss their work, the satisfaction they experience from their jobs, and the impact they make in the world. ISEs are employed in a wide range of industries such as defense, healthcare, consumer products, financial services, logistics, transportation, energy, entertainment, aviation, manufacturing of all types, and many more. Any industry or enterprise involving complex decisions and scarce resources recruits Industrial and Systems Engineers.
There is no better institution at which to study Industrial and Systems Engineering than the University of Southern California (USC). Focused, intellectually fit, and blending the latest quantitative tools with a systems view of problems and a special facility for reasoning, Epstein ISE Department graduates are the USC Viterbi School of Engineering's consummate economic competitors.
