Engineering offers new master’s focused on health-care operations

The 30-hour master’s program will teach students to apply analysis and improvement methods from industrial engineering and engineering management to their own operations in health care.

The School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis is offering a new master’s degree that will use engineering principles to dramatically improve health-care operations.

The Master of Health Care Operational Excellence will equip leaders in health care and health-care management to improve the quality and efficiency of the U.S. health-care system using engineering systems processes. The degree, which will launch in fall 2017, is designed for health-care management and staff within both hospitals and clinics.
