M.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering
The Master's in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) prepares any engineer to design and improve integrated systems of people, technology, material, information and energy. As companies adopt management philosophies with a focus on continuous improvement and product quality to survive in the competitive world market, the need for Industrial and Systems Engineers is growing.
Our flexible curriculum allows selection from a variety of courses based on the student's interests and career needs, such as:
Many engineers with a Master’s in ISE have their undergraduate degree in a different field of engineering. Thus, admission is open to engineers with an undergraduate degree in any field of engineering - Industrial and Systems, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, Civil, etc. No make-up courses are required.
- Statistical Quality Analysis
- Production Systems and Workflow Analysis
- Foundations of Systems Engineering
- Engineering Decision Analysis
- Computer Simulation of Discrete Event Systems
- Lean Principles and Application
- E-Commerce and ERP
- Human Factors
- Computer-Integrated Manufacturing Systems
- Robotic Systems
Applicants with an engineering technology, computer science, mathematics or science background will be considered for admission, but may be required to take additional preparatory courses in engineering.
Many engineers working full-time enroll in the ISE M.S. program on a part-time basis since all courses are offered in the evening, and some courses are also available online. Students may enter the program at any time of the year and begin their classes in either September, January or May due to the flexible nature of the course requirements.
