Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering

BSIE SheetProgram Information:

Students specializing in Industrial Engineering will complete the program as outlined here. Click on the picture at right to see the layout of courses in the curriculum. The first two semesters are spent in the Department of Engineering Fundamentals.  Students then apply for admission into the Department of Industrial Engineering  and once accepted, spend ten semesters in Departmental Studies (for the Bachelor of Science degree) and a fifth year in Graduate Studies (for the Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering degree).  This curriculum is designed as an integrated five-year program, with a cooperative education component, culminating in the Master of Engineering degree.  This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Appropriate design experiences are presented to students throughout the industrial engineering curriculum, starting with IE 240 Fundamentals in IE courseat the sophomore level, continuing through the IE 499 capstone design course at the senior level, and culminating with the IE 697 Master of Engineering Thesis or IE 699, IE Masters Thesis Project.  At the senior level, design projects are required in most courses like IE 421 - Facility Location and Layout, IE 430 Quality Control, IE 541  Simulation, and IE 480 Ergnomics and Work Physiology. Students are also exposed to various levels of design experience in their three required co-ops.

1 Acceptance into the Department of Industrial Engineering requires that a student have a 2.0 GPA in the prescribed set of courses totaling 31 semester hours taken during the first year in Engineering Fundamentals. The prescribed courses are footnoted in the listing above. In addition, the student must be in good standing with the university. The only possible substitution to the list of courses totaling 31 hours above is noted in footnote 3.

2 General Education requirement for this program; see http://www.louisville.edu/provost/GER/ for the listing of Arts/CD/Hum/SBS Electives which satisfy the University-wide General Education requirements, by academic year.

3 Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 satisfy the General Education and Engineering Fundamentals requirements for Written Communication.  However, an additional 3-hour Humanities/SS elective course is needed to satisfy program credit hour requirements; ENGL 303 (Technical Writing) is recommended.
