Room E-219 Parkview Campus

The objectives of the program leading to a Master of Science in Engineering (Industrial) are:

  1. To prepare students who hold a baccalaureate degree in industrial engineering or other engineering or related disciplines for advanced level professional practice in industrial engineering;
  2. To prepare students for formal post-master’s and doctoral programs, as their inclination and professional growth require.

Graduates of the program can look forward to career opportunities with higher levels of responsibility and remuneration.  These include jobs at a variety of levels in manufacturing and service-related industries.

Admission Requirements

  1. Possess a baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related discipline.
  2. Have an undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 for regular admission.  Probationary admission may be granted to students with a grade point average of at least 2.5 and less than 3.0.
  3. Submit GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores for the General Test.
  4. Where the student’s background is found deficient, foundation courses will be required.  Students with a baccalaureate degree in industrial engineering will typically not be required to take any prerequisite classes.
