Our Industrial and Management Systems Engineering program educational objectives were revised in Fall 2006, Spring 2007, Spring 2011, and Spring 2012 with input from constituents (Tampa Bay area employers, department faculty, and department advisory board members). Our Information Technology program educational objectives were defined in Summer 2014. Our program education objectives are reviewed every year at our annual Advisory Board meeting. The most recent review was held in April 2017. No changes were suggested at this most recent review.
