Degree Requirements

 

The BS in industrial engineering program requires the completion of 128 semester hours for graduation, minus hours commensurate with advanced placement credit. Students may select 9 hours of technical electives to emphasize their study of engineering systems, ergonomics, or manufacturing engineering. This allows students to specialize in a specific area of industrial engineering. Students programs are determined, interests in consultation with their faculty advisors, by their own. Specific requirements and a suggested schedule for the industrial engineering program are given in the accompanying table.
