Industrial & Systems Engineering Technical Elective Policy
Approved 10/18/13

All B.I.Sy.E. students are required to take a core set of Industrial & Systems Engineering courses to ensure they have a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Industrial & Systems Engineering. Depending on your desired career path and the industry you expect to work in, you will then choose a set of technical electives to deepen your knowledge in an area that complements your Industrial & Systems Engineering knowledge base.

The B.I.Sy.E. requires 15 credits of technical electives. *Many Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Management, Supply Chain & Operations, Information & Decision Sciences, Public Healthcare, and Economics courses at the 3000+ level will be approved to receive technical elective credit. You must submit an ISyE Technical Elective Approval Form during Spring semester of your Junior year listing your intended technical electives to an ISyE Adviser. Any changes must also be submitted for approval.

Below are some sample technical electives for certain Areas of Concentration. You are not required to select from one of these packages, but all of these courses are pre-approved as technical electives.
