The MSIE Program offers three specialized concentrations:

(1) Healthcare Management: For students who are interested in applying the methodology of operations research and industrial engineering to healthcare systems.

(2) Regulated Industries: For students who have an undergraduate engineering degree and are interested in industrial engineering problems in regulated industries. 

(3) Systems Engineering: For students who are interested in taking a holistic view of engineering and focusing on how complex engineering projects should be designed and managed.

 

Healthcare Management

The healthcare management concentration is for students who are interested in applying the methodology of operations research and industrial engineering to healthcare systems. Students take technical, operational and managerial electives that cover aspects of the healthcare context in order to identify, model, analyze operational improvements and innovations.

Students must complete at least 9 credits in total, where IEOR E4507 is required. Additional 6 or more electives can be chosen from the second list.

IEOR E4507 Healthcare Operations Management (Required)
