Graduate Programs

We offer programs of study leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering.

A wide variety of applications are possible depending upon the interests of the student: systems modeling and analysis, operations research, human factors and ergonomics, production and manufacturing systems. We offer a number of traditional and cutting-edge industrial engineering courses, and we allow our students to explore courses outside of ISE coursework.

Master of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering

We offer three M.S. degrees: a standard research-based M.S. option requiring a thesis, a non-thesis M.S. option and an online M.S. option. Learn more about our M.S. options from the following links.

Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering

We offer the opportunity to pursue research at a more theoretical level and work closely along side our diverse faculty with our Ph.D. degree. For more information about our Ph.D. degree, visit the following link.

It is the student’s responsibility to identify an appropriate Ph.D. advisor. As early as possible, doctoral students should talk with several faculty members and should reach an agreement on mentorship for the PhD degree. Then, both the student and the faculty member should inform the Graduate Liaison and the Student Services Coordinator of their decision. If a student has not found an advisor after two semesters in the doctoral program, the student may be dismissed from the program.
