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).
