MS Engineering, Specialization in Integrated Technology Management

Catalog Home

The MS ENGR ITM program has flexible curriculum allowing the student a wide choice in course selection. The program requires a minimum 45 quarter credits of course work in the 400 or 500 level. Of the 45 units, 22 are technical electives. Student can choose technical elective courses from the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) department as well as outside the IME department. Flexibility is emphasized so that the student and his/her advisor can structure a degree plan tailored to the individual needs of the student. Only letter-graded courses count toward satisfying the total unit requirement for the degree. Courses on a credit/no credit basis are not allowed in the formal study plan. No audit credits are permitted.

The MS ENGR ITM program does not require a thesis. Student is required to complete a project in which he/she typically works in industry and applies engineering knowledge and methods to solve a practical complex problem. Student is required to document his/her project with a final report, which will be reviewed by the project advisor in the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) department.
