Industrial and Systems Engineering

Graduate Degrees offered: Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering; M.S./M.Eng. in Industrial and Systems Engineering


The Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) graduate program is global in scope for students interested in pursuing research at the cutting edge of the discipline.

ISE research areas include operations research and logistics, information systems and technologies, and manufacturing systems and processes. Active research projects investigate supply chain logistics, electronic market intermediaries, discrete and combinatorial optimization, replacement analysis, transportation logistics, and parallel algorithms.

A one-year M.S. in management science (non-thesis) offers courses in engineering and business/economics, and an M.S. in quality engineering is available through distance learning.
