Return to Programs Return to: Programs

The Department of Decision Sciences and Engineering Systems offers the Master of Engineering and Master of Science degrees in Service and Manufacturing Systems Engineering. This program combines modeling, statistical, computer, design and management skills focused on the operations of service and manufacturing systems. The program core provides a skill base in operations engineering with a balance of applications in services and manufacturing. Course work concentrations allow specialization in Service Operations or Manufacturing Processes.

All applicants must take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). GRE completion is especially important for those requesting financial aid, due to the large number of aid requests. The GMAT may be substituted for the GRE for students applying to the Master of Engineering program.
