ISE Graduate Core Courses

All graduate degrees require a set of three core courses. For prerequisite information, see the Required Background:

M.S., MISE, and Ph.D. Core Courses:
  • INSY 6600/6606 Manufacturing/Production Economics - (3). LEC. 3. Pr., INSY 3600. Continuation of INSY 3600. Emphasis on design economics and cost estimating techniques and applications to various manufacturing and service operations. (Offered every Spring semester)
  • INSY 7300 Advanced Engineering Statistics I - (3). LEC. 3. Pr., STAT 3610. Advanced concepts of experimental design including blocked designs, analysis of variance regression approach, and fractional factorials in base-2 designs. Emphasis throughout is on developing and improving industrial products and processes. Credit will not be given for both INSY 7300 and STAT 7300. (Offered every Fall semester)
  • INSY 7420 Linear Programming and Network Flows - (3). LEC. 3. Pr., INSY 3410 or departmental approval. Linear programming and network flows emphasizing algorithms and theory. (Offered every Spring semester)
    • Ph.D. Eligibility: It is not necessary for a student to have a Masters degree to enter the PhD program.

MEM Core Courses:

  • INSY 6600/6606  Manufacturing and Production Economics - (3). LEC. 3. Pr., INSY 3600. Continuation of INSY 3600. Emphasis on design economics and cost estimating techniques and applications to various manufacturing and service operations. (Offered every Spring semester).
  • INSY 7980/7986 Master’s in Industrial and Systems Engineering Project - (5). DSL. SU. Non-thesis master's project. Course may be repeated for a maximum of 5 credit hours.
