What is industrial and systems engineering?

Why choose Industrial and Systems Engineering at UW-Madison?

As an undergraduate you will have a chance to work on real problems for real companies. That is one of the things ISyE at Wisconsin is most known for — real world experiences for our undergraduates. In some cases you might help a hospital redesign emergency department workflows to make sure the sickest patients get treated quicker. In other cases you might help a small manufacturing company worried about its bottom line redesign its processes to do more with less. In all cases you will tangibly improve the lives of your client and their customers.
