About this course

Industrial and Management Systems Engineers (IMSE’s) optimize how organizations deliver goods and services. They apply mathematical models, human factors, engineering problem-solving and managerial concepts to create safer and more productive workplaces. The knowledge and skills of an IMSE apply broadly across many sectors of society, including manufacturing, finance, transportation, health care, communications, energy, construction, entertainment, and government.

Since IMSE's are employed in every facet of American business and industry, they are usually "people-oriented problem solvers" who enjoy diversity in their assignments and careers.  IMSE combines technical problem-solving of engineering with knowledge of business and management functions, making graduates highly sought after by many types of employers.

Since 1923, alumni from this program have found engaging and productive careers as project managers, manufacturing engineers, hospital administrators, consultants, quality assurance managers and engineers, technical sales engineers, production supervisors, department heads, business owners and company presidents.  You can view class pictures from the last three decades of graduates from this long-standing and successful program.

Course Modules

As an Industrial and Management Systems Engineering (IMSE) student, you’ll take a broad range of courses. The curriculum is continually updated to reflect modern industrial and management systems engineering practice, so it is best to refer to the online catalog at this address: http:// catalog.montana.edu/undergraduate/engineering/mechanical-industrial-engineering/industrialengineering/. From there, you can explore the suggested class schedule for each year as an undergraduate and delve into course descriptions.

  • As an IMSE major, you’ll receive a strong grounding in mathematics, science, engineering and computing fundamentals in the first two years.
  • In the second two years, you’ll acquire specialized knowledge about improving industrial and management systems. Topics include human factors, work design, operations research, simulation modeling, applied statistics, project management, economic analysis, and facilities design.
  • You will customize your IMSE degree by developing a complementary area of specialization through the IMSE cognate
  • You’ll find that the IMSE curriculum emphasizes development of strong oral and written communication skills which are essential for you to build a successful career.
  • To help you better understand the larger social context in which you are solving problems, you’ll complete 15 credits of humanities, social science, and fine arts core classes.
  • If you’re a typical IMSE student, you’ll complete internships or an undergraduate research experience where you will apply your schooling to real-world problems.

How to Apply

Prior to applying to Montana State University (MSU), it is recommended that the applicant contact the department of the intended area of study, as department information, requirements, and deadlines may vary. See Graduate Areas of Study, for all the graduate programs offered at MSU.

Any applicant who has received a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university may apply for admission to The Graduate School. This can be done by applying through this online site. The $60.00 non-refundable application fee can be paid by credit card or debit check (Note: if you choose to pay by debit check, there can be a delay of five to ten business days before the check will clear).

The application fee will not be waived, deferred, or refunded for any reason. The application fee must be paid before the application will be processed (See Board of Regents Policy).

During the application process, applicants will be asked to provide a Social Security number to distinguish between individuals with the same or similar names. Applicants will not be penalized if they decline to provide this number. Federal law requires that when applicants apply for financial aid, graduate assistantships, fellowships, traineeships, or tuition waiver, they must provide their Social Security number for purposes of identification.

As this is a fully electronic application process, you will be providing a majority of the application materials requested by uploading it into your application. It is important to check with the program you are applying for to understand what will be requested prior to applying. Also note that during the application process, you will provide information on your references and this electronic process will prompt these individuals to submit their letters of recommendation and recommendation forms through this electronic process.There is no need to send duplicate materials to The Graduate School of these unofficial documents.

You will be required to submit official transcripts to The Graduate School. They should be sent to MSU directly from your university(s), however, we do use services such as National Student Clearinghouse.

The initial application fee is valid for no more than one (1) year from the term of the initial application. An applicant who has not been offered admittance will have the opportunity to reapply within this time frame without incurring an additional application fee. If an applicant would like to reapply to the same, or a different department, during this time, contact The Graduate School ([email protected]) with the request. If an applicant waits longer than one (1) year, it will be necessary to reapply and pay the application fee again.

If an applicant applies and is admitted as a non-degree graduate student, then chooses to apply to become a degree-seeking graduate student, a request can be made that their original application be sent to the intended department of study; no additional application fee is required. To make this request, contact The Graduate School at [email protected]; this request can occur at any time you are a graduate student in good standing at MSU.
