Graduate Admissions

Admission to the Master of Industrial Technology and Operations (MITO)

The MITO is a professional degree designed for individuals who plan to make a career in industry. Considered a “hybrid” degree, the MITO blends the practical application of current technologies with the managerial skills needed to oversee a wide range of industrial operations. The flexible format of this degree allows each student to outline a program of study suited to their career goals and interests.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must hold a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited educational institution and have at least a “B” average (GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 or the equivalent). Students with a GPA of 3.0/4.0 can be admitted unconditionally. Applicants with a GPA of 2.5/4.0 may start their studies as non-degree students and would be required to attain a GPA of 3.3 or better in the first three courses completed, after which time the student could request reconsideration for degree-seeking status.

International students must apply for full-time status, which requires registration in a minimum of 9 credit hours each semester. Applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree outside the U.S. must submit GRE scores with the admission application. Minimum required GRE scores are 2.5 for analytical writing and a combined score of 292 for the verbal and quantitative portions of the new exam (or 900 for exams taken prior to August 2011). Applicants from countries where English is not the primary language also must complete the TOEFL with a minimum score of 70 on the Internet-based test (equivalent to 523 PBT) with no section scored below 15, or the IELTS exam with a minimum score of 5.5. International applicants must also submit a certified financial affidavit of support verifying adequate funding for a year of study in the U.S.
