Graduate Programs

ISE offers several graduate study options to meet a student’s variety of needs and educational goals. Carefully read through our options and requirements to determine which option best suits your needs.

M.S. Programs

Our M.S. degree programs may be completed without a thesis in as few as three semesters. Students in the MS-IE and MS-SEE programs may choose to complete a thesis if they are interested in research and/or plan to go on to a Ph.D. program.

All programs are offered on our Urbana-Champaign campus, with MS-IE programs also available online.

Students applying to the PhD program with a bachelor’s degree will complete 64 hours of coursework and 32 hours of thesis research. Ph.D. students should expect to be fully involved in research.
