M.Sc. in Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Portable design and operation of modern industrial and service systems require integration of human, material, equipment and financial resources. In recent years this integration has become tighter due to the inclusion of information technology and resulted in more complex systems.


Industrial Engineering research focuses on quantitative analysis, synthesis, and management of such complex systems. The limited faculty members come from the Industrial Engineering department of the College of Engineering, the Operations and Information Systems group of the College of Administrative Sciences and Economics, and other related fields.

Our research areas are diverse, including Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Service Operations, Production Systems, Stochastic Processes, Financial Engineering, Mathematical Programming, Data Mining, and Bioinformatics.

The programs are built on the basic methodologies of operations research and their applications in manufacturing, distribution and service industries. Graduates of the M.S. program have been placed in respectable Ph.D. programs in North America, Europe, and Turkey as well as various professional positions in the industry since 2003. The first graduates of the Ph.D. program were produced in 2009 and they are pursuing their academic career either through a post-doc program or by joining respectable universities in Turkey or abroad.

While our M.S. program provides a strong foundation for academic studies in terms of Industrial Engineering knowledge as well as developing research skills, our Ph.D. program provides advanced education emphasizing the discovery of new scientific knowledge through extensive research experience. The aim is to produce competitive research results and educate the future leaders of the profession. The potential opportunities for graduates of the programs are diverse and include:

For M.S. graduates, continuing their graduate studies with the best Ph.D. programs worldwide,

For Ph.D. students, starting their academic career in respectable universities worldwide;

  • employment in private and government organizations where they can provide the necessary technical and managerial expertise and leadership;

General Overview

A master program with Thesis is comprised of at least seven courses conditional on not being less than twenty-one credits in total, at least one seminar course and a thesis study. Seminar course and thesis study are non-credit courses and they are evaluated as either “satisfactory” or “unsatisfactory”.

At most two of the courses that the student will take can be selected from undergraduate courses conditional on not having been taken during undergraduate education. Moreover, with the recommendation of the department board and with the approval of the Executive Council two courses at most can be selected amongst the courses given by other Universities.

Period of Study

The duration of the Master program, not including the time spent on scientific preparation and regardless of which semesters the student has registered for, is four semesters, starting from the period in which the courses for the registered program are given and it should be completed in six semesters at most.
