Join the Next Generation of Leaders
Become an Engineering Leader
Expand your effectiveness as an engineer by gaining valuable leadership skills. All students in the program take core leadership courses in areas such as marketing, finance, law, analysis, and project management to help you take the next step in your career.
Develop your technical expertise
The Master of Engineering program not only prepares students with the leadership skills necessary to manage multi-faceted projects, but also helps students gain a deeper understanding of an engineering discipline. Master of Engineering students concentrating in IEOR are required to take IEOR 240 (Optimization Analytics) and IEOR 241 (Risk Modeling, Simulation, and Data Analysis) and two additional IEOR electives of their choice in areas such as data science, financial engineering, supply chain management, operations research, and decision analytics.
Hands-on capstone experience
Set in the heart of the Bay Area, the worldwide epicenter for engineering innovation, students attending UC Berkeley are uniquely positioned to build lasting connections with industry. Through the capstone experience, students form interdisciplinary teams, partner with industry, and benefit from the expertise of industry leaders and faculty to apply their learning by creating real projects.
