The MS SEM program can be taken as a thesis (24 credits plus 6 credits of thesis) or non-thesis (30 credits) option.
There are five courses (15 credits) that constitute the core requirements for the MS SEM:
The remaining courses can be taken from those offered in the Industrial Engineering department or any of the following engineering disciplines within the College of Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Computer Science, and Petroleum). In addition, courses outside of the College of Engineering, such as business, math, or psychology can be applied toward the degree as long as they are approved by both the graduate advisor and the SEM graduate advisor.
An option within the MS SEM program is to take 3-5 courses as a minor. The courses do not have to come from the same department, but they must be focused on a specific specialty area, and the minor must be approved by the SEM graduate advisor.
