The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers the Master of Science degree and participates in the interdepartmental Ph.D. program in Mechanical and Systems Engineering administered by the College of Engineering. Students working toward the master's degree (thesis option) must complete at least 24 hours of course work, 1 hour of graduate seminar, 1 hour of writing class and 4 hours of thesis. Students in non-thesis option must complete at least 29 hours of course work, 1 hour of graduate seminar, 1 hour of writing class and 3 hours of project.
