Program description

The industrial engineering MS program prepares students to give practical and economically efficient solutions to real-life, complex problems, solutions that require a system level approach. Examples of these problems include health delivery, food and energy systems as well as those that arise in the strategic planning of manufacturing, logistics operations and service industries. Some of the tools used to address these problems include statistics, optimization, computer simulation and advanced analytics.The industrial engineering program at Arizona State University is recognized for its high-impact, agile, interdisciplinary, results-oriented research on the most pressing societal needs, and it is consistently ranked among the top 20 graduate programs in the United States. The program is immersed in the innovation environment that permeates Arizona State University, and its faculty members are internationally recognized for their innovative research projects, funded both by government and industry.

In addition to the MS and PhD programs, you may earn an Online MS or Online MS/MBA.
