Message from the Chair
Mark S. Daskin, Clyde W. Johnson Professor and IOE Chair
Welcome to the University of Michigan Industrial and Operations Engineering website!
There is a rich tradition of industrial and operations engineering education and research at Michigan. We have world renowned faculty, successful alumni, and the best and brightest students. The faculty are involved in a broad range of research projects that span operations research, optimization theory and methodologies, stochastic modeling human factors and ergonomics, production and manufacturing systems, statistical decision-making and quality engineering, logistics, risk management, energy and sustainability, health care operations, and medical decision making.
Faculty and students together are creating new and relevant knowledge and extending the frontiers in these areas. Many of these activities are interdisciplinary and link with other highly rated departments and colleges at the University. All of this provides an intellectually stimulating and rewarding environment for faculty, staff and students.
