Overview of Graduate Schools offering Industrial Engineering Programs
In this article, we take a look at some top civil engineering graduate schools in the United States that are ranked highly and offer many concentration areas for students. The University of California – Berkeley and the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor are large, state universities.
University of California – Berkeley
In 2010, the U.S. News and World Report ranked the University of California – Berkeley third on its list of best graduate programs in industrial and manufacturing engineering. A Master of Science (M.S.) degree plan with various options is available through Berkeley’s College of Engineering, by the Industrial Engineering and Operations Research Department. Many specializations may be chosen by students in one or more sub-areas within operations research and industrial engineering. These include technology management, logistics, service and production operations, operations research, decision and simulation technology, and financial systems.
University of Michigan – Ann Arbor
In 2010, the U.S. News and World Report ranked the industrial and operations engineering (IOE) program of the University of Michigan second on its list of best industrial and manufacturing engineering graduate programs. A Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) or a Master of Science (M.S.) may be available to any incoming students who have completed the 30-credit hours IOE master’s program. Students without a prior undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline could benefit from the MSE. Admission criteria to the University of Michigan’s master’s program typically require the submission of GRE scores. The only exception is if the students hold a bachelor’s degree from Michigan. Enrolled students must keep at least a B average.
