The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering aims to attract, educate students and prepare them to be leaders in the Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) in Vietnam and Asia. The department offers programs to satisfy the needs of Vietnam in industry development, research, education and entrepreneurship in the field.

Undergraduate programs

Objectives: The undergraduate program of ISE will provide students with theoretical knowledge, and practice on designing, operating, improving and optimizing production and service systems.
1. IU Program (4 years at IU)
Degree: Bachelor of Industrial and Systems Engineering awarded by the International University

2. Partner Programs (2 years at IU + 2 years at IU overseas partner universities)
Degree: Bachelor of Industrial and Systems Engineering awarded by the overseas partner universities such as Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey and University at Binghamton, The State University of New York (USA).
