M.S. in Industrial Engineering

Program Director

Rafael Moras, Ph.D., P.E.

The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering program is a blend of basic engineering knowledge, management techniques, people management skills, and computer technology integrated with applied mathematics and statistics.

The industrial engineer can design, implement, control, and manage complex systems in an efficient manner.

The 30-hour master’s degree program in Industrial Engineering is open to students with an undergraduate degree in engineering, the physical sciences or mathematics.

The program may be completed in 18 to 24 months. Students with degrees in other areas may be required to take prerequisite course work.
