Individuals involved in the design and development of products for human use will find the program content immediately applicable to their job. With an emphasis on the application of user engineering design principles, the tools and methods to assess and enhance quality and productivity for both consumers and employees are provided. Applications include medical devices, consumer products, military systems, software design and the workplace. The program is comprised of three courses from the Penn State curriculum. These courses provide students with both a breadth and depth in their exposure to user engineering tools and principles.
An applicant must hold either (1) a bachelor's degree from a U.S. regionally accredited institution or (2) a postsecondary degree that is equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree earned from an officially recognized degree-granting international institution. Graduates in engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics who present a 3.0 grade-point average will be considered for admission. International students must satisfy the Graduate School's English language requirement. Professional experience will be taken into consideration for admission. Exceptions to the minimum 3.0 grade-point average may be made for students with special backgrounds, abilities, and interests.
GRE scores are not required for nondegree graduate students. Individuals who wish to apply to the graduate degree program in Industrial Engineering must submit an application for admission, along with all of the required supporting documentation, including GRE scores. Completion of a graduate credit certificate at Penn State does not imply or guarantee admission to a graduate degree program.
