Master in Industrial Engineering (MIE) | NC State ISE

Master in Industrial Engineering

The MIE is a professional degree that will prepare you to excel in a career in industry, government or consulting. It is a terminal degree perfect for self-supported, military, part-time and co-op students. Thus, it is not normal for MIE students to receive assistantship awards.

There is no final oral examination or thesis research required for the MIE degree. Project work (up to six credit hours) is optional so you can get this degree with course work only.

Project Work

As stated above, project work is optional. Proposals for project work should be completed using the ISE Graduate Student Project/Study Contract. All work must be reviewed and approved by your degree advisor.

It is recommended that all project work should be documented in a formal report with properly listed references, an abstract, etc. Such efforts should represent scholarly work above and beyond that done for other purposes, such as course term papers. You must register for ISE 677 in order to get course credit toward the degree for project work.

MIE Degree Checklist

You should complete the following checklist. In your final semester, notify the Graduate School that you are eligible to graduate. This must be done no later than four weeks before the last day of classes. To receive a diploma at graduation, you must apply through MyPack Portal.
