Overview

We have graduates working in consulting, technology development, software, supply chains, manufacturing , engineering management, and many related areas. Epstein ISE graduates find professional success in all sectors of the economy: private, public, and every combination in between. Our graduate degrees prepare students for the most advanced work in the field, either as industry professionals or as academic personnel.

In 2002, we became the first named department at the University of Southern California - The Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

The founder and CEO of ConAm Management Corporation, Daniel Epstein used his ISE education to become a leading real estate developer and manager. Mr. Epstein generously donated $11 million to the department to enable us to recruit new, additional faculty members in information technology and engineering management.
