Program Overview

The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering degree program at Lawrence Technological University is designed for students aspiring to work to optimize complex processes or systems. More specifically, a job within the scope of industrial engineering can entail improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes.

Examples of where industrial engineering might be used include designing an assembly workstation, strategizing for operational logistics, consulting as an efficiency expert, developing a financial algorithm or loan system for a bank, streamlining operation and emergency room location or usage in a hospital, planning distribution schemes for materials or products and shortening lines at a bank, hospital or theme park.

Students will be required to take 30 credit hours for the master’s degree. For core classes students will take the following: Engineering Systems Simulation, Quality Control, Advanced Optimization Techniques, Applied Stochastic Processes, Production Planning and Control, and Technology Management. Students also will be able to choose from an array of electives for the remaining credits such as: Enterprise Productivity, Six Sigma Processes, Engineering Supply Chain Management, and Quality Engineering Systems.
