Industrial Engineering

Information for Industry and Community Organizations

Thank you for visiting the UW Industrial & Systems Engineering website. UW ISE prepares students for careers in an increasingly diverse, dynamic, and technological world. There are a variety of ways for ISE's industrial and community supporters to partner with UW ISE.

An internship is a career-related work experience that integrates classroom theory with "real world" practical experience. The ISE Internship Program (ISEIP) matches companies and community organizations with talented ISE students. Employers use ISEIP's easy online process to post their positions identifying skill area and level. The benefits to both employers and students are significant.

During the two-quarter Senior Design capstone course, student teams pair up with local companies to implement solutions to company identified problems. The goals of the course are to educate students in professional practice and disseminate new information to local industry. Corporations, small companies, and non-profit agencies have received significant benefit from student proposed solutions. To propose a Senior Design project, please email Professor Richard Storch.

ISE has an active and supportive Visiting Committee of industrial representatives and community members who advise the program on a variety of issues from curriculum revision to accreditation. The Committee's primary project is recruiting internships for the ISE Internship Program. Members of the committee also serve as judges for Senior Design Projects and interviewers for the annual student Mock Interviews. The Visiting Committee meets quarterly.

ISE's Industrial Advocates program brings together industry and community representatives who are supportive of IE but may not be able to attend meetings on a regular basis. Affiliates are invited to ISE seminars and events and a yearly meeting.

For more information on the Industrial Advocates Program, please email IE administrator, Kellus Stone.
