Five-year BS in Engineering/MS in Industrial Engineering
The combined Five-year BS in Engineering/MS in Industrial Engineering degree is open to all students who wish to pursue a degree in engineering. This accelerated option helps you complete both your bachelor’s and master’s degree more quickly and efficiently, saving you both time and money, which is an imperative goal of an industrial engineer. The Five-year BS in Engineering/MS in Industrial Engineering program will help you advance your knowledge in areas such as analytical modeling, production scheduling, and facilities design and scheduling, while taking advantage of the latest technologies and opportunities the industry has to offer.
Provisional acceptance is granted to incoming freshmen who score a combined 1200 on the SAT Math and Critical Reading portions and have a 3.5 high school GPA. Students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher each year (freshman, sophomore, and junior years) to maintain their provisional acceptance. Students who do not qualify for provisional acceptance as an incoming freshman can apply during the first semester of their junior year as long as they have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
As an undergraduate student, you may major in any of our engineering options, including Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial, or Mechanical Engineering. For your graduate studies, you will take 9 credits in core courses, including Optimization Methods I, Production and Inventory Modeling, and Advanced Engineering Statistics along with a Core Concentration in Discrete Event Simulation. You will have 3 credits in the core concentration and the choice of a 3-credit Non-Thesis option or 6-credit Thesis option. The remainder of credits can be selected from a wide variety courses in topics ranging from decision making to lean manufacturing.
You'll learn from our experienced faculty who are dedicated to your success. The personal attention you'll receive from our faculty is unparalleled. They'll become your mentors, learning partners, and colleagues during the four years of your education. Not only will you work with them in the classroom, but you'll also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research and development projects. Their interests span the breadth of Industrial Engineering in areas such as supply chain management, discrete event systems, quality, reliability, global health, human factors, and risk management.
