BS - Industrial & Systems Engineering-Industrial Engr Concentration

  • Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering & Engineering Technology
    Department of Systems and Industrial Engineering

    Industrial and Systems Engineering (Industrial Engineering Concentration), BS

    Program Information:
    The Industrial & Systems Engineering program is a combination of Industrial Engineering & Systems Engineering.  Industrial engineering is concerned with design, improvement and implementation of integrated processes of people, information, materials, management and equipment.  IE's draw upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences combined with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design, to specify, predict, and evaluate processes and systems.

    Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary and structured approach to designing and deploying successful systems to blend engineering, systems thinking, and management topics. Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods, and risk management tools while ensures that all likely aspects of a project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole.

    Students in this major have the opportunity to concentrate in either Industrial or Systems.  Due to the relevance of the two disciplines, 75% of the curriculum is shared providing graduates with an expanded job market opportunities while the remaining 25% is directed towards the specifics of each area of engineering.

    Engineering Standing: The first two years of a program's curriculum are considered to be lower division while the remaining two years are considered the upper division. In addition to the stated prerequisites and unless otherwise noted in the catalog, students must apply for and be granted Engineering Standing in order to enroll in any upper division engineering course taught in the College of Engineering. A 2.70 GPA is required to receive engineering standing in the courses outlined by the department.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Industrial and Systems Engineering (Industrial Engineering Concentration) degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.) 

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. Must earn a grade of "C" or better in coursework.
    2. Not all courses are offered every semester.
    3. See KSU online Catalog or departmental website for pre-requisite(s) or course descriptions.

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
