Master of Science in Industrial Engineering

The industrial engineering graduate program provides opportunities for students to develop technical excellence in both industry and research applications. There are four tracks available: Industry Applications, Decision Analytics, Logistics Management, and Occupational Safety and Health. The program is delivered in traditional face-to-face and distance education formats so students can complete studies while working full-time or as an intern. There are also opportunities for students to be involved in individual study under faculty supervision.

All tracks in the industrial engineering graduate program have a similar core, and a set of elective courses. Students may also take courses from other engineering or College of Science disciplines to broaden their skills.

Students who do not have an industrial engineering or similar undergraduate degree may need to take pre-requisite courses so they can successfully complete the program.

Elective Courses

 Students must select elective courses to reach a total of 30 credit hours (10 courses). With advisor approval students may select a maximum of 6 credit hours (2 courses) in other engineering disciplines, or from the College of Science, as part of their program.

Students may elect to pursue a "Capstone" option by substituting a 3 hour elective course with a 3 hours capstone course, under supervision of an IMSE faculty member.  With advisor approval students may select a maximum of 3 credit hours (1 course) in another enginering discipline, or from the College of Science, as part of their program.

Students may elect to pursue a "Thesis" option by substituting two 3 hour elective courses with two 3 hours thesis courses, under supervision of an IMSE faculty member.  No electives may be outside of the department.

FAST TRACK PROGRAM FOR A M.S. IN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING

The Fast Track Program enables outstanding UT Arlington senior undergraduate students in Industrial Engineering to satisfy degree requirements leading to a master's degree in Industrial Engineering while completing their undergraduate studies.

When senior-level students are within 15 hours of completing their undergraduate degree requirements, they may take up to 6 hours of approved senior level coursework designated by the Industrial Engineering Program to satisfy both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. In the limiting case, a student completing the maximum allowable hours (6) while in undergraduate status would have to take only 24 additional masters level hours to meet minimum requirements for graduation.

Interested UT Arlington undergraduate Industrial Engineering students should apply to the Fast Track Program just prior to beginning their last 30 hours of their bachelor's degree. They must have completed at least 30 hours at UTA, achieving an overall GPA of 3.0 or better in all work done at UTA. Additionally, they must have completed 9 hours of specified foundation courses with a minimum GPA of 3.3 in those courses.
