Industrial Engineering (Minor)

To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!

The minor in Industrial Engineering is designed to provide undergraduate engineering students and other science majors in curricula other than Industrial Engineering with the fundamentals of industrial engineering necessary for advanced study in the discipline and/or employment in industrial engineering related occupations. The minor in Industrial Engineering offers a structured program that allows students to acquire some level of expertise in areas common to all industrial engineers as well as a deeper knowledge in at least one specific area of interest.

Admissions and Certification of Minor

To be admitted to the program, a student must have a GPA of at least 2.0. Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based upon the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. Go to Add a Minor to apply. The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program.
