The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed this directory as a resource for the industrial and systems engineering community.
The information was primarily drawn from university websites. For each university, it shows the name and address of that university, degrees offered by that university (e.g., a B.S. in Systems Engineering or a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering), the academic unit that offers those degrees, the head of the academic unit offering those degrees, and a URL where more information can be found.
There were some challenges in deciding which programs to include because there are so many variations in how universities identify their systems and industrial engineering programs, especially when looking across so many countries. With a few exceptions, we included only programs with the title “Systems Engineering,” or “Industrial Engineering.” Generally, we did not include restricted systems or industrial engineering programs, such as “Computer Systems Engineering”.
We have grown from 245 universities in 2015 to 304 universities this year. With the addition of 59 universities, we’ve also grown in the number of programs included. We now have 756 programs included in the Worldwide Directory.
Please contact us if your university has a degree program in SE or IE not currently included or if you have updates to make to your university listing. Questions and comments are also welcomed.
