"A team of IMSE researchers recently received a grant from the Department of Agriculture to study the potential bioenergy and bioproduct capacities of camelina. The research goal is to develop technical solutions to make camelina a cost-effective bioenergy and bioproduct feedstock."
-- Shing Chang, IMSE Associate Professor
The industrial and manufacturing systems engineering department is committed to excellence in scholarly research and graduate teaching. Our graduate classes typically enroll 20 or fewer students each. Graduate students are individually known by the IMSE faculty and will work directly with one of our faculty members to conduct their research projects.
The IMSE department offers a rich variety of projects in the areas of operations research, ergonomics, manufacturing processes, production, health systems, uncertainty representation and intelligent reasoning, as well as quality engineering. In addition to basic research, our curriculum emphasizes collaborative and interdisciplinary research, collaboration with industrial partners, and development and modeling of various industrial processes. Take a look at some of our current research.
