In the Operations, Information, and Technology field we use mathematical models to improve technological systems.
We develop new methods, improve the use of emerging technologies, study a wide variety of systems, and impact practice, using tools from operations research, game theory, econometrics, computer science, probability and statistics.
Our faculty research interests include health care systems, product design and manufacturing processes, supply networks, information systems, energy and environmental systems, homeland security systems, financial systems, social networks, and online markets. Our faculty-student ratio is approximately one-to-one allowing for personalized attention to students.
Preparation and Qualifications
The program is intended for students with strong training in relevant mathematical methods and models who are interested in academic careers. Students who enroll in this program must have strong preparation in advanced calculus, linear algebra, or probability. Competence in optimization, computer programming, microeconomics, and classical statistics is also helpful. Recent admits have majored in Electrical and Industrial Engineering, Math, Statistics and Economics.
