Undergraduate Study in Industrial & Systems Engineering
Exceptional Students Options
Program activities and options are available to encourage and reward students with superior records and abilities. Participation in these programs requires demonstrated scholastic excellence and prior arrangement with the student's advisor and/or the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies.
With approval, students with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or above may take up to 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses. Students who would get both BS and MS in ISYE may use up to 6 credit hours of graduate-level course for both degrees. To take a graduate-level course for both degrees, the grade-point average must be 3.5 or higher.
When faculty resources permit, the School offers honors versions of some of the required courses for the BS IE Students with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.3 are allowed to enroll in these courses and use them as replacements for the analogous course requirements in the curriculum.
Visiting Scholar/Practitioner Offerings
Occasionally, the School brings to campus selected individuals of unique accomplishment for course offerings built around their special areas of activity, thus making available a broader range of course materials than regularly provided. Prominent in this regard is the James C. Edenfield Executive-in-Residence program, which brings highly successful executives to the School. Participating much like visiting faculty, these executives bring to a classroom setting, both graduate and undergraduate, the benefit of their work experiences as they support the ISYE curriculum.
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
