The U.S. News and World Report top-ranked UC Berkeley Department of Industrial Engineering & Operations Research invents, analyzes and teaches tools and approaches for design, analysis, risk management, and decision-making in complex real-world systems like supply chains, energy systems, healthcare systems, and financial systems.
MEng in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research
The MEng program in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research combines business-oriented coursework with applications-focused industrial engineering and operations research courses emphasizing Optimization Analytics, Risk Modeling, Simulation, and Data Analysis. Machine Learning and Data Science are exciting new topics that combine results from stochastics and optimization to provide a growing range of products and services. It is intended to prepare students for professional practice, explicitly developing skills in managing complex projects and directing financial and operational matters. The MEng technical concentrations in this department are:
- Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship Strategy (IPES)
- Management Science & Engineering
Developing an Affordable Alternative for Autonomous Vehicle Localization using High-Definition Radar Images
Using high-definition radar images, this team proposed an algorithm to achieve an equivalent performance with a technology that is cheaper, easier to install, and less susceptible to adverse weather conditions such as rain, fog, and snow.
Esther Fernandez-Bravo graduated from the Berkeley MEng program with a degree in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research (IEOR). Here, she discusses her technical background and expertise, as well as her enthusiasm for optimization analytics and the influence she aims to have on organizations.
