Florida Institute of Technology’s master’s in Operations Research degree is one of the few in the nation. With a strong emphasis on mathematics and stochastic theory, this interdisciplinary field overlaps mathematics with other disciplines such as industrial design and operations management. 


Students tailor their degree to their particular interests and career path.

In addition to the master’s in Operations Research, Florida Institute of Technology also offers a doctoral program in the field.

Since its inception, the concept of operations research has been widely applied by industry and government in making decisions about the use of resources and in solving problems involving complex design, allocation, planning, and logistics. Graduate students interested in a master’s in operations research are trained to use mathematical computer modeling, simulation tests, and optimization to forecast the implications of various business management choices and identify the best possible alternatives.
