MS in Industrial Engineering
The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (MS) degree consists of two options: a 30-credit hour research oriented program requiring a thesis or a 30-credit hour application oriented program requiring a project report. The MS Industrial Engineering thesis option curriculum is built upon the choice of a concentration area around which students can mold their overall academic effort including six hours of research. The current focus areas are Data Analytics and Operations Research, Manufacturing and Production Systems, Sustainable Systems Engineering, Service and Supply Chain Systems, and Healthcare and Human-centered Systems. The MS Industrial Engineering project option requires three hours of an approved project advised by a faculty member in lieu of a thesis, and one more course.
