PlusOne with MS in Operations Research

Overview

Accelerated Master’s degrees allow students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the Accelerated Master’s Program.

With the PlusOne program, students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Below are the eligible undergraduate majors available to pursue a PlusOne pathway with a master’s degree in Operations Research. Also, review the Accelerated Master’s link for further details, including program policies and procedures, as well as how to Apply.

Graduate Course Sharing

Students currently pursuing their Bachelor’s degree should refer to their undergraduate program’s guidelines on what section of the curriculum graduate courses can be shared with (ex. General Electives OR Technical Electives). College of Engineering undergraduate students should refer to their Plan of Study page.

For other questions on graduate course sharing, please contact Graduate School of Engineering Advising.

Complete the following:

IE 6200Engineering Probability and Statistics**4 SH
OR 6205Deterministic Operations Research**4 SH

Select remaining shared courses from the following range:

Any approved EMGT, IE, or OR 5000 and 6000 level class as listed in the catalog

**Equivalent courses may be substituted
