The Master of Science in Operations Research program
is available to students with an industrial engineering background and to other engineers who satisfy requirements covering the principal subject matter of the current BS IE curriculum. The other master's programs are available for students holding the BS in engineering, mathematics, or science. Requisites include work in probability, statistics, linear algebra, calculus, and optimization, as well as selected application area work. The student may satisfy these requirements after enrollment; however, such coursework may not apply toward fulfillment of the degree requirements. The undesignated MS program is typically for those students who wish to work in the area of human-integrated systems.
(15 hrs required)
- ISyE 6669 Deterministic Optimization
- ISyE 6650 Probabilistic Models and Their Applications
- ISyE 6644 Simulation
- Math 4261 Mathematical Statistics I
- CS/ISyE xxxx Computing*
Students will typically satisfy this requirement with 6000-level coursework that is traditionally identified with and clearly supports the stated degree concentration of "Operations Research". In addition to relevant ISyE offerings, courses may be taken in other fields such as computing and mathematics. Selected courses at the 4000-level may be allowed subject to the approval of the student's advisor and the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies. A full list of approved technical electives can be found in the Academic Office as well as the Graduate Handbook
