Introduction and Objectives of the Program
İstanbul Şehir University (ŞEHİR) Graduate Program in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) is for students with an undergraduate degree (UG) in engineering or sciences such as physics and mathematics.
MS graduates from ISE will:
- Excel in science, math, and engineering fundamentals as core skills and learn how to apply them to industrial problems,
- Gain skills to continuously renew their knowledge through lifelong learning and professional development,
- Integrate engineering and business perspectives in design and decision-making processes of relevance to real life,
- Develop a capacity to lead and innovate under the winds of continuous global change.
ISE program at SEHIR aims at:
- Enhancing national research and new technology development potential,
- Raising engineering and management leaders that will grasp new global technological developments and disseminate these new developments in academic and industrial settings,
- Satisfying industrial demand on specialized workforce in the engineering area.
The ISE program at SEHIR offers the following MS track options for both non-thesis and thesis studies:
- MS in Operations Research (MS-OR): MS-OR option offers students the flexibility to select an elective course from a large pool of IE and non-IE courses. This is a general option that prepares students for Ph.D. programs.
- MS in Manufacturing and Product Engineering (MS-MPE): MS-MPE option offers students a rich specialty in design, manufacturing processes and systems, automation, and control. This option prepares students for leadership in the manufacturing industry and/or Ph.D. studies in manufacturing-related fields.
- MS in Engineering Management and Leadership (MS-EML): MS-EML option is for students mainly coming from industry to gain knowledge in management and leadership skills. It prepares them to be skillful managers in a wide variety of industry, business or government sectors.
- MS in Financial Engineering (MS-FE): MS-FE is for students with an engineering background and aiming to gain expertise and skills in financial theory, analysis, tools, and techniques to be leaders or consultants in the finance sector.
Graduate Programs in the GS-NAS are for students with an undergraduate degree (UG) in engineering, technology, sciences (such as physics and mathematics) and business/economics. Students with a different background and/or have not completed coursework listed below may be required to take some additional courses in the scientific preparation program:
- Analysis, differential equations, and linear algebra
- Computer programming in one of C++, FORTRAN or Java
- Probability and Statistics
- Operations Research
MS PROGRAM in INDUSTRIAL AND SYSTEMS ENGINEERING (ISE)
The maximum duration of study in the program with thesis option is six semesters. The students are required to finish their coursework in the first four semesters. Their registration will be canceled otherwise.
The maximum duration of study in the programs without thesis option is three semesters.
- You are required to complete at least 90 ECTS to graduate from the programs without thesis option and at least 120 ECTS from the program with thesis option.
Educational Mission of the Industrial and Systems Engineering Program
Graduates of the Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) program obtain advanced technical knowledge and skills for a professional career or future study in graduate schools. Through coursework, ISE graduates are able to identify, formulate and solve complex problems and conduct independent studies on areas including operations research, engineering management, manufacturing engineering and finance.
