U.S. News & World Report Best Grad Schools Industrial Engineering Badge

The Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems offers a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (MSIE) degree focusing on the design and improvement of systems, products, and processes. This degree is available to those applicants with a bachelor of science degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) or other Engineering degree ONLY.

A total systems approach is used to optimize the various aspects of operations in both manufacturing and service industries. Industrial engineers use many analytical approaches to improve productivity, safety, and quality of working life while reducing operating costs. The MSIE curriculum builds on an undergraduate engineering degree to develop a stronger systems focus and analytical capability.

The industrial engineering graduate programs are structured to support the emergence of Central Florida as a national center of high technology as well as supporting the diverse service industries in the region and throughout the nation.

Many of the graduate courses offered by the department or required in the MSIE program are offered through the Florida Engineering Educational Delivery System (FEEDS), which provides video-streamed versions of classes over the Internet.

Please note: Industrial Engineering (MSIE) may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.

International students (F or J visa) are required to enroll in a full-time course load of 9 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. Only 3 of the 9 credit hours may be taken in a completely online format.
