Industrial and Operations Engineering tackles the most demanding problems facing humankind, using a variety of perspectives and technical skills to develop solutions that serve the common good. We’re working to solve some of society’s most pressing challenges in energy, finance, health, manufacturing, robotics, supply chain, transportation and more.
The flexibility to make your degree your own and the opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration are what sets us apart from other programs.
FLEXIBILITY TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS
Unlike the majority of other graduate programs, IOE graduate students have no required sequences. Choose courses from other top-ranked U-M departments, schools, and colleges to create unique and highly-employable degrees.
COLLABORATE AND CONNECT
IOE graduate students have extensive interdisciplinary opportunities available on campus. Take classes and work with faculty from different engineering departments, Michigan Medicine, The Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS), and U-M schools and colleges such as the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the Ford School of Public Health.
LEARN FROM THE BEST ON CAMPUS AND BEYOND
Resources like the world-class Michigan Medicine health system, Ann Arbor’s vibrant tech startup community and the epicenter of the world auto industry can help you accelerate your career in any direction you choose. Our graduates work at top universities all over the world and are employed by companies and organizations like Amazon, Apple, Accenture, Google, General Motors, LLamasoft, Mayo Clinic and NASA.
