Degree Requirements

Students who lack appropriate academic preparation may be required to take bridge courses in the areas of statistics, cost analysis and engineering economics.

The program requires 30 credits, 18 of which are taken in a required core. A purpose of the core is to provide knowledge in the functional areas that are the cornerstones of the discipline: organization and people management, cost management, and systems management. The remaining 12 credits are elective courses, which may be within an area of specialization to meet the individual's specific professional and personal objectives. A 3-credit project (IE 700 Master'S Project) or a 6-credit thesis (IE 701 Master'S Thesis) are optional electives. In some cases, students may select courses to enhance their technical competency. In other cases, individuals may select courses to prepare for a change in responsibilities or job function. At least half of the elective courses must be selected from those having an IE or EM prefix.
