IE&M Program Admission Requirements

1. Overall Curriculum Requirement

A student must meet the current Industrial Engineering and Management (IE&M) curriculum or Manufacturing Engineering (MfgE) curriculum requirements in place at the time that he/she joins the program. However, for reasons including a need to observe new accreditation requirements and a credit change in a course offering, a certain program change may be applied to students accepted under a curriculum of a previous version.

2. General Education Requirements


A student must also meet the University General Education requirements unless he/she provides proof of having fulfilled the general education program consisting of a minimum of 36 credits from an accredited institution.
