Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering or Systems Engineering

The master of engineering program at Binghamton University provides students with the balance of theory and practical knowledge necessary to be successful in the profession and is intended for students who are working full time and attending graduate school part time. Students may pursue the Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in either Industrial Engineering (MEngIE) or in Systems Engineering (MEngSE). (View proposed course of study MEng IE; proposed course of study MEng SE.) These programs can be taken entirely online via EngiNet.

Utilizing the industrial resources available in the Binghamton community, students are able to develop a realistic approach to integrating both engineering and non-engineering systems such as those found in manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation. In this way, students have the opportunity to use a wide variety of industrial and systems engineering tools such as those related to modeling and simulation, statistical process control, scheduling, human factors, and supply chain management, among others.
