Industrial Engineering

A Doctor of Philosophy is a doctoral degree, but it can focus on more than philosophy. In fact, most universities award a PhD for high-level studies in any field, such as humanities, arts, sciences, engineering and mathematics. It can take five to six years to complete this program.

What is a PhD in Industrial Engineering? A program focusing on industrial engineering is often designed to prepare students to plan and conduct research, write papers and make technical presentations on subjects related to the field. The exact program requirements can vary by university but often includes in-depth coursework, research, teaching and a dissertation project. Students may be expected to take courses such as introduction to stochastic stimulation, intermediate statistics, production and logistics, and mathematical programming.

A PhD in Industrial Engineering can provide many benefits. For example, students may be eligible for a higher salary, quick promotion or new career opportunity. The dissertation requires students collaborate with a professor, which can help future research projects go smoothly.

Many students want to know what the cost of a PhD is before committing to a program. Tuition can vary greatly from one school to the next, so it is important that students contact the university they want to attend to learn about cost.

On average, students with a PhD in Industrial Engineering go on to become professors and researchers at universities and other academic institutions. However, this is not the only career path available. Graduates might also be able to become a senior industrial engineering consultant, director of ergonomists, senior quality engineer, operations analyst or industrial engineer manager. Previous work history can play a role in the career students qualify for after graduation.
