Program Details

The University of Florida (UF) offers an Engineering Master’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering in an outreach format for full-time working professionals. This is a customizable program that is offered through a primarily distance learning format, and made possible through the Outreach Engineering Management (OEM) program, which is a joint endeavor between the College of Engineering and MBA Program. Through this format, classes meet once per month, with students taking one business course and one engineering course per semester. This program’s primarily distance learning delivery was designed with working engineering professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

The Master of Engineering in Industrial and Systems Engineering (OEM) program’s core curriculum consists of 32 credits, and takes approximately 20 months (five semesters) to complete. Some of the courses that students will take through this program span the topics of Deterministic Methods in Operations Research, Organizational Behavior, Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Financial and Managerial Accounting, and Business Financial Management. However, in the spirit of continuous improvement, UF often reviews and updates the curriculum in order to keep pace with industrial and technology trends. Graduates of this program may be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the exciting fields of Business and Industrial and Systems Engineering.


Students must have a knowledge of calculus, matrix methods, computer programming, probability and statistics, baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university in Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Quantitative Management or a similar field, GPA of 3.0 or higher in the final two years of undergraduate study (including all coursework completed after the first 60 semester hours or the first 90 quarter hours), two years of full-time, professional work experience (or equivalent) is preferred, and submission of GRE scores is required unless you already have an approved advanced degree (e.g., master’s or doctoral degree in a technical discipline).
