Industrial engineers are the ones who typically join small companies and roll back their sleeves to tackle quality problems, assembly bottlenecks and queues, common defects, and wasteful delays and inventories. Global competition is tough and relentless. It is the IE who uses creativity and a technical toolbox to make American manufacturing competitive.
Recognized as a national leader in experiential education, UNH offers an intuitive, 30-credit master’s degree program in industrial engineering for qualified candidates. The program is designed to develop and hone knowledge and skills in students who are interested in working in an environment where cost effectiveness, optimal productivity, and effective use of resources are crucial. Coursework covers a broad variety of topics in manufacturing and technical productivity, quality standards, lean manufacturing, process improvement, and more. Students who join the program look for advancement in manufacturing organizations or are seeking new management opportunities in operations, supply chain, and quality engineering and management.
The program offers small class sizes, study in state-of-the-art training facilities, and learning from highly educated practitioners with a wealth of industry experience. Because the Graduate School at UNH offers courses on a trimester schedule, the industrial engineering program can be completed in as little as one year on a full-time basis.
