Master of Science in Healthcare Systems Engineering

The LMU Healthcare Systems Engineering program educates current and future health care professionals on the important principles of systems engineering to optimally manage the complexities and challenges facing health care today. The LMU program is among the premier programs of its kind in the nation, featuring a people-first curriculum developed in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente executives and other national experts.

Our students are often nurses and other health care workers ready to become administrators; professionals in other fields looking to enter the health care field and address the sectors’ significant challenges; problem solvers who care about making a difference in improving, reforming and organizing the ways health care institutions deliver services to patients.

HSE helps solve health care problems in a broad range of areas, including: patient safety systems; streamlining of operations in emergency departments, operating rooms, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, supply chain and administration; managing population health, telemedicine, home care; equity and diversity in healthcare; reducing errors and accidents in increasingly complex clinical environments, and much more. This ultimately allows health care providers to reduce waste and cut costs, giving providers more time for quality patient care.
