1Industrial Engineering majors must take one course that meets the Core Curriculum Essential Learning Outcome of Diversity and Cultural Awareness (DCA); students must select at least one Breadth of Knowledge course in either Arts and Humanities or Social Sciences that has been approved for DCA . Please see the DCA course listing for a complete list of classes that fulfill this requirement.

2Technical electives must be taken at the 4000 level or above in engineering. Technical electives can also be taken at the 3000 level or above in math (excluding MATH.3630, MATH.4100, MATH.4190, MATH.4350, and MATH.4660), physics, or other science discipline.

No more than two Breadth of Knowledge courses can be taken with the same prefix. The Core Curriculum courses may be taken in any sequence. Refer to the Core Curriculum policy for further details.You should meet with your faculty advisor to determine how you will meet the Core Curriculum requirements.
