MSc in Industrial Engineering

Kadir Has University

MSc in Industrial Engineering

Due to increasing dependency on natural resources at today’s technological and industrial developments, utilizing the scarce resources has become one to the most critical areas of research. Given these constantly evolving business and working conditions, industrial engineers excel in areas such as management of scarce resources, development of alternative production policies and coordination of interdisciplinary projects. Industrial Engineering is a branch of engineering that involves human, machines, materials and similar elements and develops the system, model and method to analyze, plan, organize, monitor and improve manufacturing and service systems.

Basic research areas are production planning and inventory control, manufacturing automation, manufacturing systems design and analysis, cost management, operations research, decision analysis, quality management, and human factors engineering.

All courses are taught in English.

Completion of a graduate thesis is required for graduation.

Why Industrial Engineering Graduate Program of KHAS?

Our graduates have the skills to solve industrial engineering problems in both production and service systems using science and engineering principles, and to determine, identify, analyze and solve complex problems that arise during the operation of industrial and service systems. Additionally, due to future changing conditions, students are taught to follow scientific and technological innovations and renew themselves.

Information on the Institution

Department of Industrial Engineering was established in 2003 under the Faculty of Engineering which later evolved to the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences. The first students to the Graduate Program in Industrial Engineering under the Graduate School of Science and Engineering were accepted in the Academic Year of 2009-2010 and the first M.S. degrees were awarded in 2011.

Qualification Awarded / Level of Qualification

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded with Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (The Qualifications Frameworks in the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA): Level 2, European Qualifications Framework (EQF): Level 7)

Admission Requirements

The applicants of the program are required to hold a B.S. degree in Engineering and to have scored at least 55 in the quantitative section of Academic Personnel and Graduate Education Entrance Examination (ALES) and 50 in the Interuniversity Council Language Examination. ALES score requirement is not applicable to international students. International language examination (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) scores are acceptable for all applicants according to the equivalencies as imposed by the regulations of the Higher Education Council.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Students may be exempted from some of the graduate courses they have succeded in a previously attended program, if they have not been counted towards a degree already, in view of the Exemption Regulations of Kadir Has University.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to successfully complete the curriculum accepted by the Senate corresponding to 120 ECTS credits in total; that is, coursework with a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.50/4.00 and an M.S. thesis.

Definition of the Program

Industrial Engineering is an engineering discipline based on preventing and solving problems in the systems, using existing and developed models and methods, consisting of the elements such as; people, machine, material, of public and industrial sectors in order to analyze, plan, organize, manage, investigate and improve. That is why that the Industrial Engineering Graduate Program is formed for students to gain a deep of needed knowledge and capability in order to design and analyze production and service organizations. This program will teach the theoretical and application sides of industrial engineering and operation research at an advanced level. Basic research topics, such as: advanced production planning and control, engineering optimization and applications, advanced issues in quality control and so on.
