Industrial Engineers use a variety of mathematical and computer methods to study, improve, and optimize processes in a wide range of manufacturing and service settings.
In addition to these specific program areas, our faculty have significant expertise in Healthcare Systems Engineering and Human Factors Engineering.
The MS in Industrial Engineering can be combined with a Gordon Engineering Leadership certificate. Learn more about the benefits of this unique program.
