Industrial Engineering Doctoral Degree Program
Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering
The Industrial Engineering Program for doctoral students is designed to prepare engineers to advance their degrees in industry, government, and academia. This is a research focused program with areas of specialization in general industrial engineering, manufacturing systems, ergonomics/human factors, advanced analytics/operations research, or systems engineering/engineering management.
Doctoral Program Objective
The Industrial, Manufacturing, and Systems Engineering Department doctoral program is designed for advanced graduate students who wish to advance their careers in research and development in industry, government, or academia.
The program requires approximately four years of full-time study. A student's program will consist of coursework, independent study, and a dissertation in a field pertinent to the student's areas of interest. The program for each student will be planned by the student and a committee of faculty members.
Students with undergraduate degrees in fields other than engineering may be required to take necessary courses to establish a background in science, mathematics, and engineering.
Requirements for Licensure or Certification
All discipline specific programs in the College of Engineering meet educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in all U.S. states, territories, and the District of Columbia.
