Master of Engineering Degree
Rutgers School of Engineering’s Master of Engineering degree in Applied Industrial and Systems Engineering is a career-directed program for those looking to enhance their existing industrial practice in focused areas, including planning and operations engineering, data analytics, and risk and uncertainty. Designed to integrate theory with applied training and skills, students will combine diversified coursework with hands-on learning that is relevant across a variety of industries from advanced manufacturing and healthcare to transportation, infrastructure, financial systems, and more.
This degree includes on campus and fully online options.
Emphasis on applied problem solving, the use of technology for engineering applications, and unique internship opportunities are key components of the program. Students completing this degree will understand how to gather and analyze engineering data, identify trends and patterns to better predict future events and make decisions in complex, dynamic environments, and consider risk and account for uncertainty.
Core engineering courses cover a wide spectrum of subjects, including:
■ Data analytics for engineering systems
■ Decision making under uncertainty
■ Planning and operations engineering
Elective courses enable students to customize their program to interest areas:
■ Advanced engineering economics
■ Advanced manufacturing processes
■ Design of experiments
■ Facilities planning and design
■ Forecasting and time series analysis
■ Procurement management and global sourcing
■ Production analysis
