Industrial Engineering B.S.I.E.

Eight-Semester Degree Program

The following section contains the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree and a suggested sequence. Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites. Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program.

At least 12 hours of technical electives must be selected from INEG courses.

CHEM 1123/CHEM 1121L University Chemistry II or PHYS 2074 University Physics II


If the student selected CHEM 1123/CHEM 1121L as their freshman science elective then this course must be PHYS 2074 University Physics II; otherwise see the approved list of IE science electives.


The purpose of technical electives is to provide students with the opportunity to expand their education along lines of particular interest to them. The approved list of technical electives is available in the industrial engineering department. At least 12 hours must be selected from INEG courses.


Although any elective included on the humanities/social science list may be selected, PSYC 2003 General Psychology is recommended for industrial engineers.


The approved list of science electives is available in the industrial engineering departmental office.
