Welcome to the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems (IEMS) at UCF, one of the most dynamic IE departments in the world. UCF's Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems provides outstanding undergraduate education, engages in collaborative and multidisciplinary research, and offers excellent graduate programs that appeal to students of diverse interests and backgrounds. Because of their outstanding technical and creative abilities, our graduates are nationally and internationally recognized as productive contributors to the overall global economy.
I am Waldemar Karwowski, Chair of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems at UCF. In my almost 13 years as chair, I have seen our graduates rise in the ranks to become an astronaut, a vice president at UPS, the mayor of Jeddah, managers at Apple, NASA, Disney, Universal, and Northrop Grumman, and university professors and department chairs. I have no doubt that each of you can achieve the same level of success.
To paraphrase Miley Cyrus from her song the Climb
It’s always going be an uphill battle
Sometimes you’re going to have to lose
It isn’t about how fast you get there
It isn’t about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
Congratulations graduates. Go Knights! Charge on!
