BS in Industrial Engineering

Sequence of Courses

The BS in industrial engineering program requires the completion of 128 credit hours for graduation, minus hours commensurate with advanced placement credit. Students may select 12 credit hours of technical electives to emphasize the study of engineering systems, ergonomics or manufacturing engineering. This allows students to specialize in a specific area of industrial engineering. Students’ programs are determined by their own interests in consultation with their faculty advisors. All the prerequisite courses must have a grade that generates 2.000 or more credit points per credit hour. Specific requirements for the industrial engineering program are given in the accompanying table.
