Industrial Engineering Technical Elective-

Students in industrial engineering select 9 credits of technical electives.  With the undergraduate advisor's approval, upper level courses from other departments may be used as technical electives.  Select three courses from the following list:

IE 441Information and Knowledge Engineering3
IE 447Legal Aspects of Engineering3
IE 449Industrial Robotics3
IE 453Computer Integrated Manufacturing3
IE 455Robotics and Programmable Logic Controllers3
IE 456Introduction to Industrial Hygiene3
IE 463Invention and Entrepreneurship3
IE 469Reliability in Engineering Systems3
IE 473Safety Engineering3

Refer to the General Education Requirements section of this catalog for further information on electives.

This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load. 

Co-op

Two co-op courses taken in sequence replace a technical elective. In industrial engineering,  In Industrial Engineering,  IE 310 Co-op Work Experience I is taken without credit, and IE 411 Co-op Work Experience II is taken for degree credit, with IE 310 Co-op Work Experience I as a prerequisite.
