    Master of Industrial Technology and Operations

    Program description | Admission | Courses | Curriculum | Download details

    The Master of Industrial Technology and Operations (MITO) degree requires completion of 30 semester hours (generally 10 courses). No thesis or research requirements apply.  Students must complete at least 18 semester hours of MITO graduate courses.  A student may choose to complete up to 12 semester hours of graduate courses in a different field of study (e.g., Food Science), but must be suitably qualified and obtain permission to register from their adviser and the course instructors.  Up to 12 semester hours of senior (400-level) courses can be taken as part of this master's program. A total of 9 semester hours of graduate-level courses taken outside of IIT (graded "B" or better) may be transferred toward the MITO degree with advisor approval. These allowances offer our graduate students great flexibility in individualizing their program of study. 

    Full-time students can complete the program in four semesters. Part-time students may proceed at their own pace, but are expected to maintain continuous enrollment semester to semester until the degree requirements are completed.
