Master of Science in Industrial and Systems Engg. is an interdisciplinary course which has plenty of scope. The widespread application of IE concepts across a diverse range of problems has made this an essential school for almost all Univ's. IE is mainly a combination of Engineering field and a management oriented approach. The specialization in IE includes any of the following domains:

1) OR- Operations Research
Focuses primarily on developing computational and stochastic models and other optimization techniques, and uses Mathematical (Numerical) and Statistical analysis as a main tool. It also encompasses a variety of modelling techniques and OR seems to be the "future ready", branch of IE. Offered in many univ's as a part of both specialization as well as majors, OR is a branch, which can land you a job in almost every field of its application. On top of this, other relevant areas under OR like, Linear Programming, Probabilistic etc., offers a more research oriented exposure. This is an awesome domain under IE, for all those who love maths and enjoy doing it. Job wise, positions such as Operations Analyst, OR Engineer, Optimized Solutions and service providing concerns will be the major recruiters.

2) SCM- Supply Chain Management
SCM concepts form the back-born of 'any' organization. Its roots stem from organizational structure to product level processes. As a field, SCM encompasses warehousing, Transportation management and materials handling, Management of resources with a customer focus and is THE best field, when it comes to Consultant jobs, Industry Jobs, and any other field. Almost all Systems in the World, be it Finance sector, Consultancy sector, Manufacturing Sector have an integral dept. for SCM, which makes it an obvious choice for them to hire IE people in this domain. The coursework is mainly related to developing solutions, Business models, incorporating advanced sensing technologies like the RFID etc., and also develop frameworks for Closed loop system analysis. Green Manufacturing with SCM concepts seems to the latest technique adopted under this belt by the Manufacturing Industries. Stochastic network analysis and other solutions in supply chain fields are progressive research oriented directions.

3) Manufacturing
This is the oldest and perhaps the most evergreen of all. It involves analysis of Productions systems, Manufacturing systems, assembly lines, Factory Automation, Robotics, Computer Integrated Manufacturing etc. It finds its application in every Automobile Company, Manufacturing company, Production Systems, Aerospace Sector to name a few. Job wise, it does become a bit harder to hunt in the US with majority of MFG being either outsourced or reserved for citizens/PR's, if you have the passion for the field, it shouldn't be a problem.

4) Prod- Production
This falls in close line with Manufacturing except that Production systems are studied in more detail here.

5) Logistics, Intelligent systems
This is another field that is gaining momentum at a rapid pace. Logistics and Intelligent systems are used in almost all activities in all the companies; Be it manufacturing, Consultancy, Industries and others. Developing new Systems that can handle freight services, Intelligent production and movement of traffic have rendered this domain really palpable for Aerospace/Aviation sector for Traffic Management. The main source of recruiters to this field are present world over and is said to be a job magnet when it comes to IE along with SCM/OR.

6) Systems engineering and a whole more.
This, being a subsidiary specialization that would depend on the other course work, include in depth analysis and research of Systems engineering. It follows a closely threaded path along with SCM/Logistics,Intelligent Systems.

7) Health Care and Human Interaction
This field is gaining momentum at a tremendous pace. Most of the funds allocated are for IE applications and solutions in healthcare and related aspects. Ergonomics, Cockpit management, Systems effectiveness management and other applications that establish a link between Human - Computer, Human- machine with automated technologies come under this domain. Job prospects are currently good as this finds takers in a broad spectrum of concerns.

Operational Research vs Manufacturing


The Industrial and Systems Engineer can solve a variety of problems in a variety of settings. Here are just a few questions an ISE answers, divided by application area:

Manufacturing Systems
· How can output be increased
· When should a facility be expanded How much capacity should be added
· What size workforce is needed When should shifts be scheduled
· Which automated system should be purchased and implemented
· When should the equipment be replaced and which models purchased

Supply Chain Management
· Where should a facility be located
· How much inventory should be maintained and where should it be kept
· How should information be shared between customers, suppliers and manufacturers
· Which supplier should be a partner

Transportation and Logistics
· Which loads should be placed on which trucks for transport
· How should the trucks be routed through town or across country
· How large a fleet of trucks is needed Which size of truck
· Should the shipment be sent by truck, rail or aircraft
· How should the aircraft be loaded to assure balance

Information/Communications Systems
· Which technology should be implemented
· Where should a hub be located
· How much capacity should be routed through the network
· How should the network be designed (locations and routes)

Energy/Water Distribution Systems
· Which generation technologies should be utilized
· What information must be gathered for efficient utilization
· How should a distribution network be designed
· When should a network be upgraded

Financial Engineering
· How can the risk of an investment be reduced
· How can we build a robust investment portfolio
· What price and length should a service or warranty contract be
· Which capital projects should be funded (capacity expansion, equipment replacement)

Pharmaceutical and Biomedical
· What pattern of test identifies a disorder
· Which potential drugs should continue the testing (R&D) process
· What algorithm will help identify the DNA sequence

Healthcare Systems
· How many beds are needed in the ER
· When should doctors and nurses be scheduled
· How can patient wait time be reduced

What is common Efficiency. In all systems and application areas, Industrial and Systems Engineers answer questions in order to improve efficiency.

How is ISE Different

Industrial and Systems Engineers are different because of a systems perspective. For example, a Mechanical Engineer may be tasked with designing a machine to make it faster or more energy efficient. However, the Industrial and Systems Engineer will be tasked with designing the production line that integrates all machinery in order to produce a product. Furthermore, the Industrial and Systems Engineer will oversee all operations of the plant to make sure that the system, not just an individual machine, is running efficiently.

Industrial and Systems Engineers are also concerned with designing and implementing solutions. Whereas a Computer Engineering or a Computer Science Engineer is concerned with making a computer run fast and database software to execute commands quickly, it is the Industrial and Systems Engineer that devises a solution to a problem and implements it with the computer often with a decision support system that ties the solution algorithm tied to the data in a database with a manageable user interface.


IE vs MS&E:
Management Science and Engineering is another field, that is regarded closely with IE. However, there are few basic difference between these branches.

1) IE is a right mix of Engineering principles and deals with how they are applied in various frameworks under the Management of an organization to enhance it productivity. MS&E deals with more of a management oriented approach rather than engineering methods to do the same. Hence, its more related to an MBA kind of Scientific Degree..
2) Scope: Both have good job prospects, but the fact that IE can be accommodated in any network and is widespread, makes it an ideal choice for people who want to have a small foot hold into the Management domain without sacrificing engineering principles.
3) Also, IE is for those, who want to see scientific and engineering methods being adopted to increase the productivity of any system rather than going in for Management based models alone.

The following is a compilation of good Universities that offer MS & PhD in Industrial Engineering. In order to get into these universities, one needs to have decent GRE scores (yes - 'decent' is a subjective word) and academics and most importantly some related work (projects, papers, interns, course work). I say this because over the years people from other domains too apply for IE. So not having done some related work, decreases your chances of admission, no matter one’s high GRE, academics and other credentials. I am not ranking the universities, but only giving the specialization areas at which they are good at, research going on(overview), reputation and job opportunities (Approximately).

1) Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta (The Best for IE in the world)
Specialization: SCM/OR and related areas like Optimization, Statistics, Simulation, Stochastic. They are Pros when it comes to OR/SCM.

15) University of Texas at Austin
Overview: There is no generic IE here. Only OR-IE is the course that is offered. OR being a Math driven course, the focus is naturally on the rigorous problem solving Stats, Stochastic Processes, Linear Programming and Optimization. The dept. does feature in the best of rankings for IE in particular as the dept. comes under the coveted Mech Dept. at Austin. Also, the curriculum is more of a research oriented one and focuses on varied numerical and statistical analysis and simulation.
Job Prospects: Brand name helps - but converting beyond a point rests with an individual.

16) University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC)
Overview: Highly reputed University. Has the "chicago" location advance. Finance, consulting and allied IT sectors are the major recruiters.
Research: Decent on-going research works in OR, stochastic, optimization. Placements and Interns shouldn't be a problem owing to the UIUC brand name. On the flip side though, it tends to get expensive without any sort of funding.

There are many other good universities which offer IE, apart from the obvious ones like MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford. People who want to pursue IE, I don’t know how admit will be given. All the above information is provided based on the feedback by my seniors and my own research.

For some universities I have given the links about their on going research coz they have a very extensive range of research areas.

I did this because I didn’t find anything much about IE on Edulix. And moreover the number of people applying for IE has increased. I request all other IE appers to put in the information about universities to which u have applied.

I will try to include more about the Universities and related matter as soon as possible.

P.S: Off late, many doubts were raised with respective to programming knowledge requirement for IE. The answer is YES., Though its domain specific, software knowledge is widely used in almost all fields and IE being a progressive field with a mix of Engineering and Management is no exception to this.

P.P.S: If there are any mistakes, please correct me. I did this because, I cant even imagine how I would have finished my application process without the help of Edulix. I would seek the joint effort of @[vsridhar36] for taking this thread forward with his inputs and also request all Edulixians to contribute to this thread with information related to Industrial and Systems Engineering, so that I can update this post.

sandyjuventus colleges tht have IE dept separate from Mech dept. the chance of getting admitted and the probability is kinda same,if IE is integrated with Mech dept, the chances of getting funding and fee waiver etc etc becomes more difficult as compared to a separate IE dept alone. anyways i would like few seniors to verify this info as i got them based on my knowledge and own research..

@sandy Does not necessarily be easy. People from other depts can also join IE. It does not contribute to easier admits.
@Raj +1 RA/TA in a dept depends on skill whether it is Mechanical or IE or whatever dept.

Don't tag me for anything other than NCSU (IE/IMSE). I am outdated with admit trends. Don't ask me for eval since I am outdated. Thanks!

_reef_, all ur questions cannot be answered unless u actually go to US.. anyways, IE is a dept. which is widely scoped and over the years students from other dept. also apply to IE which has raised the competition.. and doing IE from a reputed univ will put u in a good position for Job, intern etc etc rather than from a mod- low ranked univ... and on top of that IE being more general, u can fit into an industry for tat matter.. from IT jobs to Core jobs..U name it and u have it.. All these are not guaranteed if u do IE from a Low ranked Univ or not reputed Univ.. and regarding the recession u mentioned.., well even 2008 witnessed such kinda things.. u never know what the situation is unless u actually face it... So, think twice before going to the US.. and on top of tat, dont mind spending 6-8 Lakhs more for a reputed Univ..as its gonna have an awesome pay back in future.. Do look ur MS as an both knowledge gaining and Investment which is gonna pay u in future.. and regarding Univ of Cincinnati, its been givin more admits to M Eng rather than MS for many students and it has got low international intake..
Hope the above post helped!...All the best..!!

prath18in, getting funding in ur 1st semester is next to impossible.. and if u do get tat, u must be really happy.. after th 1st sem, usually we can manage our expenses by doing part time, TA/RA etc etc.. though evn this is not guaranteed... As far as the universities tat offer funding at the beginning, i can remember UFl, RIT.. UFL gives funding in the form of AA Scholarship , and RIT ( heard they provide stipend + full waiver ).. so applying early here, mite be of gr8 help...
ubiquitous:, i m in th process of getting all my docs, recos etc ready.. plannin to start the process next month when i get my TOEFL scores..
