Industrial Engineering

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)


This is a highly regarded, accredited graduate degree program, so students are expected to devote about 10+ hours each week to class work - time 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.
