The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering program prepares you for success in your immediate and long-term professional career, as well as for pursuing graduate and professional studies. Students will generally complete university general education and College of Engineering requirements in the first two years of study, and satisfy major requirements in years three and four.

Degree requirements are subject to change; therefore, students are encouraged to meet with the ISE advisor as early as possible to develop a plan of study.
