Industrial and Systems Engineering (formerly Industrial Engineering) MS
The master of science degree in industrial and systems engineering allows students to customize their course work while working closely with industrial and systems engineering faculty in a contemporary, applied research area. Faculty members are currently conducting applied project and research work in the areas of contemporary manufacturing processes/systems, ergonomic/biomedical analysis, logistics and supply chain management, sustainable design and development, systems engineering/product development, and systems simulation.
The MS degree is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of study. This includes eight courses and a 6 semester credit hour thesis. All students are required to complete at least two semesters of Graduate Seminar (ISEE-795, 706).
