M.S. in Systems & Engineering Management
The program leading to the Master of Science in Systems & Engineering Management (M.S.S.E.M.) through the Industrial Engineering department is designed to meet the growing demand for technical managers with strong engineering, science and technical backgrounds as well as a sound grounding in management and financial issues. The M.S.S.E.M. program has a professional focus and provides the opportunity for students with a non−IE undergraduate degree to obtain graduate training in their specialty areas and to receive engineering management training at the same time.
Students in the M.S.S.E.M. program are subject to all masters degree regulations as outlined in the Graduate Catalog. The program follows the same course credit restrictions as the Master of Science in Industrial Engineering. The M.S.S.E.M. program can be taken as a thesis (24 credits plus 6 credits of thesis) or non−thesis (36 credits) option. Please see the Industrial Engineering Handbook for more detailed information on the M.S.S.E.M. program requirements.
Transfer of Courses
Graduate transfer credits from other institutions are contingent upon approval of the Graduate School and the graduate advisor; decisions will be based on the current policy guidelines established by the Whitacre College of Engineering, the Department of Industrial Engineering, and the Graduate School.
