MS Industrial & Systems Engineering
Achieving a Master's of Science degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering prepares you to take on the design and analysis of complex, human-machine systems in a variety of industries:
- Manufacturing and service industries
- Health care systems
- Governmental agencies
- Non-profit organizations
With a graduate degree in system engineering, you’ll be qualified to operate with the "big picture" or systems viewpoint necessary to serve as a management and operations analyst whose focus is efficiency and effective systems performance.
Expected Program Outcomes
Gain practical knowledge in areas such as facilities planning, operations planning and control, economic analysis, design of experiments, and project management.
Learn methodologies employed by systems engineers, including probability and statistics, mathematical programming, computer simulation, and human performance studies.
- Open to students with quantitatively based baccalaureate degrees from accredited colleges or universities.
- Consists of 16 semester hours of required courses and 20 semester hours of elective courses, including thesis credit, for a total of 36 semester hours minimum.
- Courses from the approved set of electives may be substituted for required courses if you can demonstrate mastery as a result of previous course work (must be approved).
