Master's

Students in the ISEEM Department's graduate program may choose to pursue a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) with a specialization in industrial engineering, systems engineering, or engineering management, or a Master of Science in Operations Research (MSOR).

Admission Requirements

The requirements for admission for graduate study in an ISEEM program conform to the policies of the School of Graduate Studies and the College of Engineering. In addition, the MSE with a specialization in either engineering management or systems engineering require two years of work experience in a technical organization.

General Requirements

Students pursuing the MSE or the Master of Science in Operations Research (MSOR) must choose either a non-thesis option or thesis option. The non-thesis option requires 30 hours of coursework, typically equating to 10 classes. If a student chooses to do a thesis, only 24 hours of coursework is required, plus at least six hours of thesis research. 

Master of Science in Engineering (MSE)

Industrial Engineering Option

This program is offered for engineers who possess a bachelor's degree in a traditional engineering field and who have the desire to broaden their engineering problem-solving skills. This is accomplished by providing them with a better understanding of traditional and contemporary problem-solving skills in the areas of operations research, quality control, computer-integrated manufacturing, and simulation. The program is application-oriented and can be tailored to fit the individual needs of the student.

Systems Engineering Option

This program is offered for engineers who possess a bachelor's degree in a traditional engineering field and who have the desire to broaden their background into systems-oriented aspects of engineering. With a curriculum focused on needs identification, cost-benefit analysis, the system life-cycle concept, quality control, logistics planning and control, and forecasting, the program provides students with the analysis and design tools to supplement those learned in their undergraduate engineering program.

Engineering Management Option

This program is offered for engineers who find themselves performing engineering management functions without the benefit of a formal management education. It is designed to build upon the mathematical and analytical expertise gained from both a formal engineering education and professional experience. Its curriculum emphasizes the application of the management function in a technological setting while recognizing the basic and applied sciences in engineering systems.
