Courses and Electives

Standard Industrial & Systems Engineering Option

Students must complete Electives from the following categories: ISE, Technical, and Math. The specific number of electives required depends on your curriculum option and year.

ISE Electives may be selected from any ISE course in the curriculum at the 4000 or 5000 level. Courses that are part of your required undergraduate curriculum or are cross-listed with undergraduate required courses may not be used. Refer to the course catalog for a complete listing of ISE courses.

Other courses can be considered for elective credit by obtaining permission from the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering's Undergraduate Committee.

Industrial and Systems Engineering Information Technology Option

  • Students do not take ISE Electives, Technical Electives, or Math Electives. Instead, they select three (3) CS Electives (courses beginning with CS and numbered 3000 or above).
  • All students must complete an application to take CS upper division electives. The list of CS electives is limited due to the CS course prerequisites - you can contact the School of Computer Science on these courses, if you have questions.
  • Students are encouraged to take CS 3053 (Human Computer Interaction) as an elective since the course helps bridge the gap between ISE and CS.
