Description of the Programme
NIU and PSG has signed a 1+1 agreement facilitating PSG students to take ﬁrst year of graduate course work (up to 15 credit hours) at PSG and the second year of course work (at least 16 credit hours) at NIU. Essentially this agreement reduces the total cost by more than 75% (as the ﬁrst year of study is completed at PSG). During the ﬁrst year, PSG faculty are teaching the same set of courses which NIU also oﬀers, therefore the quality of education is maintained at par with NIU standards. All the students under this program are still eligible for tuition waivers, teaching and research assistantships, Curricular Practical Training (internships) and Optional Practical Training (after graduation, before seeking H1B visa).. The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering has received over $6 million in research funding from the local businesses and hired over 200 graduate students to work on these projects in the past 5 years. Nearly 80% of our students do at least one paid internship, 60% do at least two internships and almost all of our graduate students ﬁnd a full time employment with in three months from the time of graduation. The department has state-of-the-art laboratories, caring faculty and staﬀ , vibrant research opportunities and active alumni.
