Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences

Degree Types: PhD

The Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences PhD Program produces researchers who combine strength in core methodologies of operations research (e.g., optimization, stochastic modeling and simulation, statistics, and data analytics) with the ability to apply them to yield practical benefits in solving problems that are important in the real world. The program offers students the opportunity to use skills in computing, mathematical analysis and modeling, and economic, to produce research that helps to improve efficiency, quality, and the potential of organizations to fulfill their missions. The program prepares students for research-based careers in industry, academia, and government.

Areas of specialization include analytics & statistics, financial engineering, health & humanitarian systems, optimization, organization science, production & logistics, stochastic modeling & simulation.

Applicants must have a bachelor's or master's degree in a relevant discipline, but need not have a degree in industrial engineering. The program has attracted students of applied mathematics, computer science, economics, finance, mathematics, physics, statistics, and most engineering disciplines, ranging from automation & control to systems engineering.

See the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences Degree Requirements for specific classes and procedures needed to complete this program.
