ISE Graduate Programs:
The Department of Industrial Systems Engineering, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial Systems Engineering. The programs cover analysis, design and control of engineering systems. Particular attention is devoted to both the physical processes involved and the components of decision making in the industrial environment.
The programs reflect the importance of interdisciplinary endeavors in the solution of real problems. The composition of the faculty exhibits this aspect as does the policy of admitting qualified students from various technical backgrounds upon completion of a B.S. and Master Degrees.
The primary thrust of ISE Graduate Programs is to graduate engineers who can carry out modern automation technology tools of industrial systems existing in all engineering disciplines and industries such as oil industry, petrochemical industry, steel industry, power systems etc., as well as nonmanufacturing systems. At the Ph.D. level, graduates should be able to conduct necessary research and development work in process industries, government ministries well as military establishments in addition to teaching at the University level.
