While industrial engineers utilize the tools of simulation, optimization, computing, and statistics to design and improve modern technology-laden systems, human factors engineers design systems that effectively integrate human abilities/limitations and machines/tools. The online MS in Industrial & Human Factors Engineering degree program from Wright State University prepares working professionals to effectively design and operate a variety of systems in healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace, distribution, retail, and more. There are four focus areas available to suit students' personal interests and professional goals:
GRE Total of at least 290 with a minimum GRE Quantitative score of 145 for applicants (1) whose undergraduate degree is not in engineering or (2) whose undergraduate degree is not from and ABET-accredited engineering program.
