Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Industrial Engineering
The PhD Program in Industrial Engineering is intended for qualified individuals for whom past accomplishments and evaluation indicate a high potential for successful completion of the program requirements and a subsequent creative intellectual contribution to the field. Admitted students may pursue their work in various concentrations related to common themes associated with industrial engineering: supply chain logistics and manufacturing, economic decision analysis, applied statistics, and human-integrated systems. Admission is dependent upon student qualification rather than educational background in any specified discipline. Consideration for admission is based largely upon performance in prior academic work, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and credible letters of reference.
