How is the review process for MS applicants carried out?
After a student has made an official application to the university, the Industrial and Systems Engineering department reviews MS candidates to make sure their goals match those of the program and that their background meets our minimum requirements. If, after consideration of all application material, the review committee feels that the student will be successful in the program, departmental acceptance will be extended to the student. Acceptance offers are typically sent out between 3 to 4 weeks after the application deadline.
The Industrial and Systems Engineering Department does not review MS applications until after the application deadline. Once the deadline has passed, the ISYE department reviews all MS candidates to make sure their goals match those of the program and that their background meets our minimum requirements. Due to its limited resources, the department can only admit a certain number of students each semester. For historical admissions information, please see the ISYE Department’s Program Profile. If, after consideration of all application materials, the review committee feels that the student will be successful in the program, the department will recommend the student for admission to the Graduate School. Only the Graduate School can officially admit students, but in general they follow department’s recommendations. If the department cannot accept anymore graduate students, or if the review committee feels the student does not meet our minimum requirements, a refusal e-mail will be sent t
