Tbe graduate fscuky in mdustrisl engineering supports academic and research interests in four areas: msoufacturing systems (manufacturing processes, CAM, CIM, robotics, automation, and concurrent engineering); production systems (planning, scheduling, routing, inventory control, materials handling, facility design, and quality control); systems analysis and opimixtion (stochastic processes, simulation, and modehng); and ergooomics (human performance, occupational safety, and biomecbsnics). The deputment faculty actively supports btdependent graduate degree programs in operations research, integratixl manufacturing systems engmeering and management.
Admlsslon Regulrementsi Applications are accepted from uodergmduate majors in engineering snd in the behavioral, physical, snd mathematical sciences who meet prerequisites in calculus and matrix/linear algebra, computer science, and statistics.
Master's Dtgrec Regolrementri The M.S. degree mvolves depth of study in a specified area of concentrstioa, nine bours in a minor snd six hours of research crixlit. The Master of ~ puneerbtg (M.JE.) degree may be obtainml by course work only; project work is optional. A minimum of 33 hours is required for the M.IE.
