Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Industrial Engineering

Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Industrial Engineering - Applied Statistics Track

The emphasis in this track is on the use of statistics as a science that is employed in a technological environment. Within this context, a student takes fundamental coursework in mathematics, probability and statistics suitable to conduct advanced work and research in a variety of application domains. Among these are quality systems, manufacturing, production, and simulation.

Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Industrial Engineering - Supply Chain Engineering Track

This program focuses on the design and analysis of manufacturing, distribution, and transportation systems. Students take fundamental coursework in optimization, stochastics, and statistics in order to build a firm base from which to deal with the myriad of issues that arise in settings involving modern supply chain systems modeling and analysis: production and inventory systems, vehicle routing and scheduling, warehousing, and logistics.

Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Industrial Engineering - Economic Decision Analysis Track

Engineering economic decision analysis is a broad-based area of study that concentrates on both theoretical approaches and the applied methodologies in various decision-making domains within an economic environment. Typical settings that attract students to this program include multicriteria decision-making, capital budgeting, auctions, portfolio analysis and selection, economic forecasting, utility theory, and quantitative finance.
