Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering


Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) Department

Welcome to Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering at Mizzou!

Industrial and manufacturing systems engineering is a blending of natural sciences, engineering science,mathematics, computers, social science and management. This fusion of diverse skills allows industrial engineers to design and implement socio-technical systems -complex combinations of people and technology brought together to solve problems. With its diversity, industrial engineering is used in a wide variety of areas in both manufacturing and service industries.

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering is one of six academic departments within the College of Engineering At the University of Missouri. This ABET-accredited program is home to more than 177 students and 14 world-class faculty members.The University of Missouri is one of just 34 public institutions to be a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU) and is the state’s only public Tier 1 research university.
