Wayne State University: Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering
Wayne State University is Michigan's only urban research university, fulfilling a unique niche in providing access to a world-class education at a great value. Wayne State's 14 schools and colleges offer more than 350 major subject areas to our 31,040 graduate and undergraduate students. The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering within the College of Engineering offers an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE). It also offers two masters of science degrees (Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Master of Science in Engineering Management) with a variety of specialties as well as a Ph.D.

Traditionally, the industrial engineer has been responsible for analyzing the work tasks in a production environment with particular emphasis on ergonomics, human performance and efficiency. Today, however, the industrial engineer is seen as a broadly-trained integration engineer, concerned with enabling complex systems to function effectively. For example, managing the inventory of a production facility involves issues of production and stocking policy, manufacturing equipment, human resources, customer demand and supplier relationships. The industrial engineer must understand the interaction of the components of a system, and coordinate the flow of materials and information to manage the operation effectively.

The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) represents professionals in the fields of operations research and the management sciences (OR/MS), and in related fields such as information technology. Members of the OR/MS profession apply scientific tools and methods to improve systems and operations and to assist in managerial decision-making. OR/MS is a discipline that integrates and extends the principles and techniques of engineering, mathematics and the physical, information, and social sciences.

National Security Agency
The National Security Agency is the Nation's cryptologic organization. It coordinates, directs, and performs highly specialized activities to protect U.S. information systems and produce foreign intelligence information. A high technology organization, NSA is on the frontiers of communications and data processing. It is also one of the most important centers of foreign language analysis and research within the Government. NSA employs the country's premier code makers and code breakers. It is said to be the largest employer of mathematicians in the United States and perhaps the world. Its mathematicians contribute directly to the two missions of the Agency: designing cipher systems that will protect the integrity of U.S. information systems and searching for weaknesses in adversaries' systems and codes. NSA conducts one of the U.S. Government's leading research and development programs. Some of the Agency's R&D projects have significantly advanced the state of the art in the scientific and business worlds. NSA's early interest in cryptanalytic research led to the first large-scale computer and the first solid-state computer, predecessors to the modern computer.
