The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers a graduate program leading to a Master of Science degree and a PhD degree with a major in Industrial and Systems Engineering.
The Master’s Program
The thesis option requires 27 credit hours of coursework and 6 credit hours for the thesis. The non-thesis option requires 30 credit hours of coursework and a 3-credit-hour design project; the engineering management concentration requires an additional 3 credit hours.
Minor in Statistics:
A minor in statistics under the Intercollegiate Graduate Statistics Program (IGSP) is available in the Master of Science program with a major in industrial engineering. Six semester course hours in approved courses in statistics, in addition to program core course IE 516 (Statistical Method in Industrial Engineering), are required to complete the minor. The minor program in statistics is directed within the department. Students interested in adding this minor to their graduate program should consult with their major professor.
