The Courses

  • The MSEM-PPSE Track typically includes 11 courses. All courses are connected and flow in a logical, pre-determined fashion through project steps and deliverables. Students must successfully pass an oral comprehensive examination as part of a capstone exercise (usually in the form of EIN 6182 – Engineering Management) to satisfy all degree requirements. The students must also complete a capstone course to integrate the material in a specific project related to the industry sponsor’s needs. Typically, this additional class is in the form of EIN 6950 – Industrial and Systems Engineering Capstone which is a 3-credit hour course.
