We offer a master degree in Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. Industrial engineering (IE) is about choices - it is the engineering discipline that offers the most wide-ranging array of opportunities in terms of employment, and it is distinguished by its flexibility. 


While other engineering disciplines tend to apply skills to very specific areas, Industrial Engineers may be found working everywhere: from traditional manufacturing companies to airlines, from distribution companies to financial institutions, from major medical establishments to consulting companies, from high-tech corporations to companies in the food industry. 

The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh is a STEM designated degree program.
