The ISEEM Department offers three plans leading to the Master of Science in Engineering degree.  Each plan is designated as:

  • Plan I (Thesis),
  • Plan II (Non-thesis, coursework only)

For each plan, students may choose concentrations in Engineering Management, Industrial Engineering, or Systems Engineering.  The following sections describe the requirements for each of these concentrations. Additional requirements, policies, and required forms may be found in the ISEEM Department office.
