Dual Degree - MS in Industrial and Systems Engineering
Over and above the fact that students are able to complete their Bachelor and Master degrees in an accelerated manner, these dual programs offer a unique opportunity for outstanding undergraduate students to pursue. The combination of these programs provides a synergy that allows students to apply their learning between programs. For example, these programs will allow students to work through the thesis or capstone project process, that includes experiences that undergraduate students are not typically well-versed in, while completing undergraduate coursework (e.g., problem definition of ill-defined problems). Students can then apply these experiences towards some of their higher-level undergraduate courses (e.g., engineering design, project design), that require some of the same skills, and obtain a better understanding and appreciation for these undergraduate courses.
The Master of Science Program in Industrial and Systems Engineering (MSISE) provides an applied research degree in which students focus in one area of IE and complete a thesis in that area. Although students focus in one area, this degree covers all the major areas of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE).
