IEOR Graduate Programs

The Berkeley Industrial Engineering and Operations Research department is the #4 ranked program in the U.S. We give students the skills and tools to design, create, analyze and understand complex real-world systems in areas such as energy systems, supply chains, healthcare, and finance.

Graduate Programs

The IEOR Department offers three graduate degrees.  The paramount requirement of a Doctoral degree is the successful completion of a thesis on a subject within Industrial Engineering and Operations Research. Research areas may include the investigation of the mathematical foundations of and computational methods for optimization or stochastic models, including risk analysis. Research also may be undertaken to develop methodologies for the design, planning, and/or control of systems in a variety of application domains.

The Department offers two degrees at the Masters level.  The Master of Science (MS) degree shares coursework with the Doctoral Degree, and is intended for those students who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of the technical underpinnings of industrial engineering and operations research.  In contrast, the Master of Engineering (MEng) is an applied degree combining business-oriented coursework with applications-focused industrial engineering and operations research courses.  It is intended to prepare students for professional practice.
