Program Description

Industrial Engineering is at the heart of the systems that are essential to our society. From airlines to online retailers, from hospitals to manufacturers, from telecommunication companies to world-wide shipping companies, industrial engineers use applied mathematics, analytics, and operational research to design solutions to improve the performance of complex systems of people, technology, and information.

*Students who do not have an Industrial Engineering background are required to take IENG 6900: Industrial Engineering Methodologies and IENG 6912: Introduction to Operations Research.*

Master's Degrees

A student's program of study for the Master's degree may be either a research intensive program (MASc) or a coursework intensive program (MEng). Note that a thesis-based research Master's degree is normally required to gain admission into the PhD program.
