TracksDetailsTotal Credit Hours
1.Thesis TrackM.S Students on the thesis track will design a student-specific curriculum sequence of 12 credit hours of coursework (in consultation with the thesis advisor and approved in writing by the student and their thesis advisor) within the first semester of graduate study. The contact will be sent to the graduate coordinator and to the Registrar's office.9 credit hours of thesis research, 9 credit hours of coursework approved by the thesis advisor, and at least one semester of the 0 credit research seminar (MECH.5010)
2.Non-Thesis TrackIn their first year students on a non-thesis track must submit a plan of study to the graduate coordinator and obtain his/her approval. Any change to the submitted plan requires the approval of the graduate coordinator.6 credit hours of coursework in an Industrial Engineering concentration and 12 credit hours of coursework approved by the graduate coordinator.
