International Master Program in Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science - International Master Program in Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
The international graduate program in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) was established in 2015 to recruit high-quality international students who will contribute diverse knowledge and valuable experience to the department. The program offers both Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees to train motivated students to be highly competent engineers or managers in their chosen fields or exemplary researchers in the academia. The students can choose their research work from an exhaustive list of specialization including management technology, production systems, quality management, operations research, information systems and human factors engineering.
The department offers a Bachelor of Science degree as well as graduate programs leading to the master`s and the doctorate`s degree in engineering. The department`s mission is to train students with an engineering background specializing in solving problems and making decisions. Particular concentration has been directed to production and operations management, quality management, information technology, as well as systems and procedures analyses. Practical applications of production-oriented operations, research techniques, computer programming fundamentals, and ergonomics are also emphasized. In recent years, the department has developed a close relationship with nearby factories.
