IE Courses: Students must earn a C in ALL industrial engineering courses (IE prefix for the course number)
Professional Enhancement Elective: Students must earn a C or better in ANY course taken to fulfill the professional enhancement elective.
Non-IE Prerequisite Courses: Often students ask what grades are required in non-IE prerequisite courses and course series (e.g., chemistry, calculus, physics, and engineering mechanics). A few specific key prerequisite courses are identified here, though students should review the course descriptions before enrolling in any class.
- CH 1223 – Chemistry 2: C or better required for certain Engineering Science (ES) electives
- PH 2223 – Physics 2: C or better required for ECE 3413 – Intro to Elect. Circuits (ES Elective)
