IEOR - Designing a More Efficient World


Graduate Students

The UC Berkeley Department of Industrial Engineering & Operations Research has master of science, master of engineering, and PhD graduate programs. The Department educates more than 200 graduate students per year. Graduates work in industry as data scientists, researchers, and engineers. Examples of recent companies that students work at include, Amazon, Google, Lyft, Uber, and other leading companies. PhD students work in industry as well or in academia as professors in leading universities. Recent PhD graduates have become professors at universities such as University of Maryland, University of Michigan, University of Southern California, and Virginia Tech.

See the directory below to connect with our students and learn more about their interests. The Department's master's programs are one-year programs, and most students will be looking for industry positions at or near the end of the spring term. The PhD program takes 5 years to complete on average. For convenience, we list students who are academic job market candidates at the top of the page.
