General admission requirements for master’s degree candidates and others seeking graduate status are as follows: applicants must be in the last semester of undergraduate study or hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
In addition, applicants for the Master of Science in Healthcare Systems Engineering must have a prior educational experience that includes an undergraduate major in engineering, the sciences, or in healthcare. Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies. Transcripts from all college studies must be submitted. When reviewing an application, the candidate’s academic and professional background will be considered. Applicants will typically have at least two years of experience in engineering or the healthcare field. A detailed professional experience résumé must be submitted.
In order to earn a Master of Science in Healthcare Systems Engineering, the student must complete 30 credits within five years. The curriculum consists of seven required core courses (21 credits) and three elective courses (9 credits). Students are advised to take the first five core courses in sequential order as listed in the course list below and are advised to group core courses sequentially if taking multiple core courses in one term. They may choose to take EN.655.771 Healthcare Systems any time after or concurrently with EN.655.662 Intro to Healthcare Systems Engineering. Students are advised to take EN.655.662 Intro to Healthcare Systems Engineering and EN.655.667 Management of Healthcare Systems Projects prior to taking elective courses. In rare circumstances, a student may take a course out of sequential order with advisor approval. Subject to advisor approval, an elective may be substituted for a core course if the student has previously completed an equivalent graduate-level course. Students are advised to takeEN.655.800 Healthcare Systems Engineering Capstone Project after all other core and elective courses have been completed. A student may take EN.655.800 in the same term as their final elective course with advisor approval. Course selections outside of the core and elective courses listed below must be approved by an advisor prior to selection. Only one grade of C can count toward the master’s degree.
