The industrial engineering department offers four degree options to meet the diverse interests of students seeking to continue their engineering education. These options include:
* master of science in industrial engineering
* master of engineering in industrial engineering
* master of engineering in systems engineering
* master of engineering in engineering management There also are dual degree programs, which combine the undergraduate degree in industrial and systems engineering with each master's degree program listed above. In addition, the department offers a combined BS degree in industrial engineering with an MS in applied statistics from the College of Engineering's John D. Hromi Center for Quality and Applied Statistics. Additionally, there is an accelerated BS/MBS program offered jointly with the E. Philip Saunders College of Business. These programs have different credit hour/degree requirements and are described in detail on the department website, www.rit.edu/ise. The student, in conjunction with an adviser, formulates a program of study based on the individual's academic background, professional goals and degree requirements.
The master of engineering degrees in industrial engineering, systems engineering and engineering management allow graduate students to align their course work with their professional goals. These programs provide applied, practical degrees that allow students to gain breadth across several different areas or focus on one area. Close cooperation with other engineering departments and the E. Philip Saunders College of Business assures the student a wide selection of courses, as well as a unique opportunity to build a program that supports his or her professional interests. The master of engineering degrees will be awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 48 quarter credit hours that is equivalent to 12 courses and an engineering caps
