An industrial and systems engineering education provides a fundamental base for success in a broad spectrum of career paths. The USC Epstein ISE Department offers a modern ISE curriculum taught by world-renowned and dedicated faculty members.
This year, we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of our department naming! In 2002, we became The Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, the first named department at the University of Southern California. Mr. Epstein, the founder and CEO of ConAm Management Corporation, used his ISE education to become a leading real estate developer. His donation to the department continues to enable us to recruit the best faculty members our field has to offer and to support our students in many ways -- some of which are described in these pages.
We invite you to explore some of our "greatest hits" in recent memory, highlighted in this newsletter. Like USC as a whole, our commitment to excellence is evident in our state-of-the-art curriculum, distinguished faculty, promising students and imperative to stay on the cutting edge of science and technology. Please have a look and enjoy.
