Industrial Engineering Graduate Major (MENG, MS, PhD, MAIS) Major/Option offered thru Ecampus - Distance Ed

Print Version Print
College of Engineering | School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering


Engineering Management  eCampus

Graduate Areas of Concentration

Human systems engineering, information systems engineering, manufacturing systems engineering, nano/micro fabrication

Industrial engineering is the application of science, mathematics, and engineering methods to complex system integration and operation. Because the systems with which they work are so large and complex, industrial engineers (IEs) must develop expertise in a wide variety of disciplines, the ability to work well with people, and a broad, systems perspective. All IE graduate students learn advanced methods of system integration and operation. As practitioners, MEng and MS graduates analyze and design facilities, material handing systems, manufacturing processes, information systems, and workstations. They also develop, apply, and oversee policies, procedures, and algorithms for production planning, inventory control, resource allocation and scheduling, quality assurance, and supply chain management. As researchers, MS and PhD graduates advance the field of industrial and manufacturing engineering by their work in industrial corporations and government agencies. As educators, PhD graduates teach and perform research in industrial and manufacturing engineering in universities around the world.

New graduate option: Manufacturing Systems Engineering, #3196.

This graduate option within the Industrial Engineering major distinguishes an area of specialization within the broader discipline of industrial engineering. Manufacturing Systems Engineering (MSE) focuses on the development of reliable, economically competitive, and environmentally benign manufacturing processes and systems. Topical areas include operations research, computer integrated manufacturing, environmentally responsible manufacturing, simulation, and statistical quality engineering.

Required Courses (6):

IE 521. Industrial Systems Optimization I (3)
   or IE 522. Industrial Systems Optimization II (3)
IE 563. Advanced Production Planning and Control (3)

Plus six (6) or more credits of course work from the following alternatives:
