Industrial Engineering Major, PhD


Return to College of Engineering Return to: College of Engineering

Admission
Admission to the PhD program requires an undergraduate degree and academic background that meets the admission criteria for the master’s program in industrial engineering or a master’s degree in industrial engineering (or a closely related field), and previous academic performance that clearly demonstrates the capacity to do original research and technical investigative work and the potential for a successful scholarly career. All applicants are required to submit General Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. A student may apply for admission to candidacy after passing the comprehensive examination and a successful defense of the dissertation proposal.

Requirements
The total program of study requires a minimum of 72 graduate hours beyond the bachelor’s degree, exclusive of credit for the master’s thesis. This includes a minimum of 36 graduate hours of course work beyond the bachelor’s degree and 24-36 hours of doctoral research and dissertation work. For a master’s program completed at another institution or in another field, the requirement may exceed the 36 hours of course work (other than research and dissertation) dependent on the previous program of study.
