This report describes relevant activities during the period of 7/1/98 through 6/30/01 for the Master of Science (M.S.) program in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE). We offer a specialized 'track' in Safety Engineering that is part of the Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics program (HFEE), along with a certificate of completion. Program funds provided by NIOSH were used to support 2-3 students in this academic option, in accordance with the proposals submitted on a yearly basis. Several changes to the leadership of this program, as well as to the M.S. curriculum have occurred. Some of these changes were made in response to feedback received by reviewers of the grant proposal, while others occurred during a substantial revision of our overall HFEE M.S. program and normal faculty turnover. All of these changes are summarized in the following report. HFEE faculty teach the majority of the required safety courses, and direct the required research conducted by all M.S. students. Safety Engineering has been, and continues to be, an integral part of the HFEE graduate option within ISE.
