About the Master of Engineering in Operations Research and Information Engineering Degree

Cornell Tech’s ORIE Masters combines Cornell University’s academic rigor with the energy and opportunity that come with studying in the heart of New York’s tech start-up community. Led by faculty who are actively shaping the future of Big Data, you’ll master the intricacies of business analytics, optimal decision-making and machine learning.

In parallel with your academic technical courses, you will also complete Studio courses—an essential component of every Cornell Tech program. These courses will comprise at least one-third of your studies, with a focus on preparing you for innovation within major tech companies or entrepreneurship within startup ventures. In cross-disciplinary teams, you’ll work with business, law, and other Cornell Tech students to create your own startup as well as develop usable solutions for real corporations. In the process, you’ll develop the business savvy and communication skills—as well as peerless technical know-how—that have made previous graduates prime recruiting targets of companies like Google, Facebook, and numerous startups.

ORIE students have the option of declaring one of two concentrations.  To qualify for the concentration, the students must take four courses from the list under the corresponding concentration below:

Data Science

  • Applied Machine Learning
  • Optimization Methods
  • Learning and Decision Making
  • Data Science in the Wild
  • Digital Marketing
  • Natural Language Processing


Operations Analytics

  • Optimization Methods
  • Modeling Under Uncertainty
  • Digital Marketing
  • Service and Online Markets
  • E-Logistics
  • Health Tech, Data, and Systems

Who Should Apply?

Cornell Tech’s ORIE Masters is ideal for students with a passion for using data-derived insights to shape business decisions. The technical requirements are that you have completed one course on linear algebra, one course on intermediate-level probability and statistics, and one course on programming before applying.

A Master of Engineering in Operations Research and Information Engineering is also offered on Cornell’s Ithaca campus, with a focus on building operations research-related math and engineering skills, rather than Cornell Tech’s more entrepreneurial approach to developing mathematical modeling skills to inform business decisions.

Unlike the Ithaca-based ORIE Masters program, Cornell Tech does not offer a third semester option for their ORIE Masters students.
