Master of Science in Logistics Systems Engineering (MS-LSE)

The Logistics Systems Engineering program is a multi-disciplinary engineering program that applies systems approach to solve contemporary problems in the field. This program is designed to meet growing industry demand for tech-savvy engineers who can design, integrate, and improve highly complex systems including logistics, production, healthcare, and retail

Program Learning Outcomes

·        Perform planning and strategic decision-making effectively in the field of logistics and systems engineering.

·        Perform modeling and analysis of systems and integrate the results.

·        Design systems with a clear understanding of complex dynamics in the field of logistics and systems engineering.

·        Adapt effective leadership in project management through clear communication and collaborative teamwork.

·        Integrate core competencies to develop solutions to complex systems problems in the field of logistics and systems engineering

Prerequisites to Graduate Work

Students of this program will come primarily from engineering disciplines. They may also come from technology, business, and applied science backgrounds with a BS degree in related fields. These students will have basic math, statistics, and science skills. Students will be required to take all core and elective courses before they can take synthesis courses (TECH 6960 or TECH 6990). They also need to take LSE 5020 and LSE 5030 before they can take LSE 6750. The rest of the core and elective courses do not require any prerequisite courses except MSA 6440, which has MSA 5020 as prerequisite. A detailed prerequisite requirement is shown in Appendix A.

Admission Procedure

To be considered for admission, applicants may apply to enter the program at the beginning of any semester and must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution (or its equivalent) in an engineering, technology, applied sciences, or related academic fields.

To gain regular admission, applicants must have a minimum of a 3.0 undergraduate grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale. Applicants are required to submit scanned copies of official or unofficial transcripts from all institutions attended. Upon admission, final official or notarized copies of transcripts from all institutions where degrees were earned and diplomas from international institutions must be submitted.  Applicants are also required to submit the following:

•                 A current CV or resume listing educational background and job experience among others.

•                 Two letters of recommendation from individuals with knowledge of the applicant’s qualifications and ability to successfully complete graduate study.

•                 Official scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Test scores may be waived when an applicant has a graduate degree from a U.S. institution or at least five years of relevant and progressive work experience.

•                 International applicants are also required to submit scores from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTEA), or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

Degree Requirements

Master of Science in Logistics Systems Engineering

The Master of Science in Logistics Systems Engineering is a joint program between the College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering and the College of Business. This degree requires 30 credit hours from three areas. The core consists of  15 credit hours; 9 credit hours from engineering and 6 credit hours from supply chain management. At least 18 credit hours of 6000 or higher-level courses must be taken. Synthesis hours cannot be taken without the consent of the advisor and graduate coordinator.

This degree will require a total of 30 credit hours: 15 credit hours required core; 3-6 credit hours synthesis (thesis or capstone project); and 9-12 credit hours elective.
