Master's Degree Programs in Industrial and Systems Engineering
Master's of Science Degrees
M.S. in Health Systems Management Engineering
This degree is designed for students with sufficiently quantitative bachelor’s degrees in engineering, the sciences or applied social science who are interested in operations management and health care applications, and whose career objectives lead to increasing technical management responsibilities in large health care organizations, particularly hospitals.
M.S Engineering Management
The Master of Science in Engineering Management prepares students for project leadership in technology-driven organizations delivering a wide array of goods and services. Many Engineering Management courses are offered at night and through the Distance Education Network, so students can enroll while continuing employment. (Open to grads from all engineering and technical majors)
M.S Industrial and Systems Engineering
The Master of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering prepares students to become technical leaders in industrial engineering. Many ISE courses are offered at night and through the Distance Education Network, so students can enroll while continuing employment. (Primarily for students who have an Bachelor's degree in industrial engineering, production engineering or equivalent)
M.S Industrial and Systems Engineering/M.B.A
The M.S. in ISE/Master of Business Administration dual degree program is for students who want an graduate program with depth in both business and engineering. This dual degree option requires 66 units to complete. Students must apply separately to the Epstein ISE Department and the Marshall School of Business and be admitted to both programs in order to pursue this option.
The M.S. in Analytics is designed to satisfy the growing demand for professionals equipped with significant training in the fundamentals of analytics for solving engineering and management problems in today’s data-driven world. Analytics is a multidisciplinary field that applies data analysis to engineering management and enterprise processes.
M.S Operations Research Engineering
The Master of Science in Operations Research Engineering trains students in solving business problems with computers and mathematics. Many Operations Research Engineering courses are offered at night and through the Distance Education Network, so students can enroll while continuing employment. (Open to graduates from all engineering and technical majors)
M.S Product Development Engineering
The M.S. in Product Development Engineering is a joint program with the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department that prepares engineers to become leaders in engineering design and new product development. Many courses are offered through the Distance Education Network, so students can enroll while continuing employment.

Graduate Certificate Program
Curricula for graduate certificates include the same courses taken by other USC graduate students, but lead to a targeted graduate credential subordinate to an MS degree. All choices give students the education they need within a short period of time. Full-time students can complete certificates in two semesters; part-time students in four semesters or less. Students who complete these credentials may apply the certificate courses toward associated Master of Science degrees.
