Industrial Engineering and Management Minor
Students majoring in any engineering discipline may elect a minor in Industrial Engineering and Management. These optional studies offer engineering students the opportunity to add important career-enhancing skills to their technological competencies. The elected courses in an IE&M minor add skills for integrating technology and resources within the complex of people, technology, machinery and information that make up the successful modern business enterprise. Students completing this minor will achieve better understanding of organizational and management processes and will be better prepared to work in the multi-functional teams crucial to success in industry.
Minors at NDSU require a minimum of 16 credits. The foundation requirements for the IE&M minor are
IME 111, Introduction to IME
IME 311, Work/Station Design
The remaining 10 credits may be selected from any IME 300- and 400-level courses for which prerequisites are in place. The only exception is Evaluation of Engineering Data (IME 460), which does not count toward this minor.
Interested students are encouraged to visit with relevant faculty in the IME Department for advice on course selection to best suit their career interests. Students must complete the graduation requirements for another engineering major before the designation of the IE&M minor will be placed on their transcripts.
