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.

Students are required to complete 40 hours of upper division courses (3000-4000 level).  It is recommended that students consult with their adviser when making course selections.

Students must complete the  State Minimum Core requirements as outlined in the Catalog of Studies. The courses that meet the state minimum core also fulfill many of the university's General Education requirements, although there are additional considerations to satisfy the general education learning outcomes. Students are encouraged to consult with their academic adviser when making course selections.


Students who enter the university with credit for ENGL 1023 are not required to complete ENGL 1033. Students who enter the university with exemption from ENGL 1023 are encouraged to take ENGL 1033.
