The industrial systems engineer is an engineering generalist with specialized training in understanding, controlling and monitoring engineering systems. This program will train you to organize and effectively use all resources of modern manufacturing and process industries, including materials, machinery, facilities, people and capital. You will study the principles of heat transfer, computer-aided engineering, and fluid mechanics.

The Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE) program is designed to train engineers to organize and effectively utilize the total resources of modern manufacturing and process industries: materials, machinery, facilities, people, and capital.
- Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Industrial Systems Engineering.
- Students in Co-operative Education graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Co-op) in Industrial Systems Engineering.
- Students in the Internship Program graduate with a B.A.Sc. (Internship) in Industrial Systems Engineering.
The ISE program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
What ISE Students Do
All engineering students take a common initial core program consisting of the basic maths and sciences needed by all engineers, plus introductory design courses.
Our ISE students study the strength of materials, principles of heat transfer, computer-aided engineering, and fluid mechanics, as well as process modeling in manufacturing industries and lean manufacturing. Students apply prior knowledge to machine design through simulation studies. Advanced studies in process engineering, control, operations management, and manufacturing are also strong program elements.
