To pursue the Industrial Engineering M.S. through the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering graduate program, students must meet the KSU Graduate School admissions requirements, hold a B.S. degree in engineering, mathematics, or physical science and be versed in several of the basic areas of industrial engineering. Non-industrial engineering undergraduates may require 6 semester credit hours of prerequisite courses. GRE scores are required for all students who apply, unless they will have cmpleted an undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited program.
An entering M.S.I.E. student is expected to have proficiency in computer programming, linear programming and statistics. Students failing to meet these expectations may be required to take some prerequisite courses.
Required Core Courses
To graduate, a student may receive at most one C in all of the core courses (no D’s or F’s are allowed). This may require some students to retake core courses.
