The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering program at Louisiana Tech University has been ranked among the best online industrial engineering degrees in the nation for 2018.
The SR Education Group, an education research publisher, has ranked the degree as the 12th best online degree program in its “2018 Best Online Colleges for Value: Master’s Industrial Engineering” list. The group ranks schools across the nation in online degree programs and shares its findings for the top 25 schools. With an annual tuition of $12,600, Louisiana Tech’s tuition is nearly half the national average of tuition ($24,331) reported for online industrial engineering programs by the organization.
At No. 12, the Louisiana Tech program ranks above online industrial engineering programs at prestigious universities, such as Purdue University (No. 17) and Columbia University (No. 23).
“It is an outstanding and well-deserved honor for Tech’s online master’s in industrial engineering to be rated so highly, ahead of even some Ivy League and much larger institutions,” Dr. Katie Evans, associate dean for strategic initiatives and director of online programs at Tech’s College of Engineering and Science said. “I believe this ranking is reflective of the high caliber of instruction provided by our dedicated industrial engineering faculty at a fraction of the cost of other institutions.”
The Louisiana Tech Industrial Engineering program provides students with opportunities to gain valuable skills that are in demand in the Louisiana workforce. The program integrates traditional engineering with statistical analysis skills and is designed to enhance opportunities for mobility within an organization. The integrated curriculum prepares students for potential leadership roles within the industrial engineering field and within organizations associated with the field.
