Curriculum

MEng is a highly regarded, accredited graduate degree program, so students can expect to devote about 10+ hours each week to class worktime spent listening to lectures, reading and studying course materials, participating on discussion boards and in chat rooms, and completing homework assignments that are submitted for grading.

The curriculum for the MEng program is comprised of 10 three-credit hour graduate courses. Five of these classes contain core industrial engineering knowledge (IE 8510, IE 8520, IE 8530, IE 8540, IE 8570) while the other five classes focus on applications within the concentration area of the capital projects supply chain (IE 8500, IE 8550, MGT 8560, IE 8580, IE 8590).
