Just as the success of our industrial and systems engineering graduates enhances the reputation of the department - the reputation of the department enhances the degrees of our graduates. The department has consistently ranked in the top 10 in the U.S. News & World Report rankings for industrial engineering, which greatly benefits our students and faculty. 

As part of a state-assisted university, we are very appreciative of the funding provided by the state of Texas. However, as time goes by, that funding becomes a smaller and smaller percentage of the overall budget required to maintain the university (currently about 32%). The university and its departments rely heavily on gifts and endowments to sustain and enhance their programs.

For the Wm Michael Barnes '64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering to sustain and enhance its programs and its ranking, and your degree, we must compete with other universities for the best faculty and the best students. That takes resources and you can help.
