The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers a dual-degree program that culminates with students receiving both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (BS/MS) in Industrial Engineering concurrently. This program is available only to qualified students enrolled in the undergraduate program in Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Miami. This program is intended to give qualified Industrial Engineering students the opportunity to acquire both a baccalaureate degree (BSIE) and a Master of Science (MSIE) degree in five years rather than the 4 plus 2 years (approximately) that is traditionally expected. The two degrees are awarded simultaneously when the combined requirements have been met for both degrees.

Admission Requirements

  • Juniors from any of the four ISE concentrations who have maintained at least a 3.0 CGPA have the option to apply for admission to the combined BS-MS in Industrial Engineering program.
  • Those who are accepted into this accelerated program must maintain at least a 3.0 CGPA and a minimum of a 3.0 GPA for the final 30 credit hours to meet the requirements of the Graduate School.
