Industrial Engineering Graduate Program

Oregon State School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering

Industrial engineering (IE) is a profession dedicated to the design, integration, and optimization of systems of people and machines that produce and deliver high quality goods and services. Oregon State University offers graduate studies in IE leading to MEng, MS, and PhD degrees. At OSU we can prepare you for an industrial, academic, or government career in:

  • Advanced Manufacturing – Developing multi-scale processes to produce human-portable heat pumps, hydrogen steam reformers for automobile fuel cells, or tissue-based toxicity biosensors.

  • Engineering Management (Ecampus only) – engineering management bridges the gap between engineering and business. Topic areas include managing highly technical organization, systems approach to solving organizational issues, engineering economic analysis, operations management, strategic planning.
  • Human Systems Engineering – Creating advanced pilot-vehicle interfaces, designing safer agricultural work environments, optimizing surgical team performance, or managing engineering groups.

  • Information Systems Engineering – Building wireless mobile computing systems, web-based systems for e-commerce, remote data capture systems to track hazardous materials, or supply chain management software to fully integrate suppliers into the manufacturing system.
  • Manufacturing Systems Engineering – Developing lean electronics manufacturing systems, creating intelligent automated manufacturing systems, designing and scheduling cellular manufacturing systems, or simulating high-volume assembly lines.

To be eligible for graduate studies in IE at OSU, you must have a baccalaureate or master’s degree in science, mathematics, engineering, computer science, or business. For more information about graduate studies in IE, visit these links:
