What is Industrial Engineering at WVU like?
Each PhD student will develop a program with a major in industrial engineering, or occupational safety and health, designed to meet his/her needs and objectives in consultation with an adviser and the advisory and examining committee.
The department is in the unique position in the United States of having two complimentary graduate programs in industrial hygiene and safety accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC) of ABET. The combined resources and faculty talents of these two programs create synergies that provide our students with outstanding academic and research experiences in the field of occupational safety and health. Excellent academic and research opportunities are also available for students in the areas of operations research, decision sciences, manufacturing and ergonomics.
Each graduate program sets their own terms of admission and application deadlines. Applicants can only apply for admission for the terms displayed below. Any questions regarding the application deadline should be directed to the graduate program representative.
