The University of Arizona is located
in Tucson, Arizona, a picturesque community surrounded by mountains and
home to almost one million residents. The Systems and Industrial
Engineering (SIE) Department at the University of Arizona was
established in 1961 as the nation's first department of systems
engineering. Since then, the SIE Department has achieved international
prestige for its contributions to the inter-disciplinary design of
large-scale complex systems involving people, technology, and
information. A modern industrial engineering curriculum was introduced
in 1972. Career opportunities for graduates of the Systems and
Industrial Engineering programs are outstanding. Over the years,
graduates from these programs have found employment in the nation's
leading corporations, research institutes, and universities.
The SIE Department offers opportunities for study leading to the following degrees:
Available for Systems Engineering and Engineering Management.
Master of Engineering (MEng)
Master of Science (MS)
Major options: Systems Engineering, Industrial Engineering or Engineering Management
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Systems and Industrial Engineeering
The PhD degree requires a high level of achievement in scholarly and independent research culminating in a written dissertation.
For a complete explanation of the
requirements for completing various graduate degree programs within the
SIE Department, please refer to the Graduate Handbook.
It complements the official Graduate Catalog of the University of
