Industrial Systems Engineering (MASc, MEng, PhD)

Join our industrial systems engineering graduate programs and get access to professors doing research on the world stage and cutting-edge labs and facilities. Specialize in industrial systems engineering areas including:

  • Manufacturing
  • Control
  • Process Engineering
  • Energy Systems

Complete a master’s degree in industrial systems engineering several ways, including:

  • Master of Applied Science – Thesis (30 credit hours) – Focus on industrial systems engineering research. The degree ends with a thesis.
  • Master of Applied Science – Co-op (38 credit hours)
  • Master of Engineering – Project (30 credit hours) – Combine your academic knowledge with professional experience through an industrial engineering project.
  • Master of Engineering – Co-op (38 credit hours)

Combine your courses in the University of Regina's industrial systems engineering master’s degree with our Co-operative Education & Internships program. Get on-the-job engineering experience to reach the next level of your industrial engineering career, and earn $8,000-$13,000 per semester. Master of Applied Science in Industrial Systems Engineering and Master of Engineering Co-op students can undertake two 4-month or one 8-month co-op work placements.

We also offer the following doctoral programs:

  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Industrial Systems Engineering (60 credit hours) (after Master's degree)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Industrial Systems Engineering (63 credit hours) (after MEng degree) 

The University of Regina's industrial systems engineering professors focus on studying the engineering methods of tomorrow, and they'll involve you in their pursuits. Our respected faculty members research topics like:

  • Numerical simulation of nonlinear dynamic systems
  • CO2 absorption in packed columns and membrane contactors
  • System risk
  • Infrastructure management
  • Fossil and bio-fuels processing
  • Heat and mass transfer with chemical reactions
  • Human factor engineering

What Is an Industrial Systems Engineer?

Industrial systems engineers use the materials, machinery, people and facilities they have at their disposal to achieve engineering goals like manufacturing reliable products and managing capital. They use process, control, management and manufacturing techniques. In U of R's industrial systems engineering graduate programs, you’ll learn to analyze and optimize industrial systems using analytics and mathematics.

Why Study Industrial Systems Engineering at the University of Regina?

The University of Regina’s industrial systems engineering master’s degree offers a flexible degree structure, with thesis, project and co-op tracks.

Industrial systems engineering master’s courses include:

  • Introduction to intelligent systems – Learn intelligent system fundamentals like fuzzy sets, fuzzy rules and fuzzy reasoning, adaptive artificial neural networks, and coactive neuro-fuzzy modeling.
