To support the ISE Undergraduate Program, the ISE Undergraduate Program Committee (UPC) (comprised of ISE faculty, Academic Advisors, and an undergraduate student representative) is established to fulfill the following mission:

The mission of the ISE UPC is to manage the ISE Undergraduate Program by overseeing the recruitment and retention of students, monitoring and improving the BSISE curriculum, addressing individual student appeals, and serving as an advocate for the Undergraduate Program in Departmental planning and decision making.

The UPC is chaired by Dr. John Shewchuk.

ISE Undergraduate Courses

Undergraduate courses offered by the ISE Department are provided in the ISE Department section of the Virginia Tech Undergraduate Catalog and in the ISE Undergraduate Student Handbook.  The Department offers required and elective courses encompassing the breadth of the industrial engineering discipline: human factors engineering and ergonomics, manufacturing systems, operations research, and management system.  In addition to formal courses, the Department has also increased opportunities for Undergraduate Research where students work one-on-one or in small groups with faculty on research activities.

The curriculum requirements for the BSISE degree are provided in the ISE Checksheet defined for each class year. More information about the Undergraduate Program is provided in the ISE Undergraduate Student Handbook. The checksheets and the undergraduate student handbook can be found on the right side bar of this page.
