MATH 250, MATH 320 or other mathematics class approved by ISyE chair.

Engineering Core Requirements (21-22 units):

These courses include units in engineering science and other subject requirements in support of engineering practice:

ENGR 101Introduction to Engineering3
ENGR 102Introduction to Electromechanical System Design3
ENGR 103User-Centered Design3
ENGR 121Engineering Programming3
ENGR 311Engineering Materials Science3
MENG 210Statics3
Engineering Elective 13-4
1

ELEC 201, MENG 260 or other engineering course approved by ISyE chair. 

Engineering Professional Practice Requirements (6 units)

In support of the professional practice of engineering, there are requirements for knowledge of oral communication, and engineering ethics. These requirements can be chosen in such a way as to also fulfill university core requirements:

COMM 203Public Speaking 13
PHIL 342Engineering Ethics3
1

ROTC students may substitute NAVS 201, MILS 301, or SDSU AS 300A for COMM 203 in the engineering program. These classes will not satisfy university core requirements 

Industrial & Systems Engineering Requirements (53 units)

These courses include units in ISyE science and design. These classes are required by the major:

ISYE 220Engineering Economics3
ISYE 310Work Analysis and Design4
ISYE 320Introduction to Systems Engineering3
ISYE 335Statistical Process Control4
ISYE 340Operations Research I3
ISYE 350

ISYE 430Design and Analysis of Engineering Experiments3
ISYE 440Operations Research II3
ISYE 460Operations and Supply Chain Management3
ISYE 470Facilities Planning3
ISYE 492Industrial and Systems Engineering Design Project3

Students also select eleven units of ISyE program electives, to include at least one lab course, approved by the student’s advisor. Eight units of these electives must be engineering courses. Approved engineering electives include ISYE 410, ISYE 450, and most ISYE 494 special topics courses. Consult with the ISyE chair for other approved electives.

Core Curriculum Requirements (33 or more additional units):

All ISyE majors must satisfy the core curriculum specified by the university.

Note: Most engineering, and many mathematics and science courses, required by the engineering program are offered only in the fall or spring semester, but not both. Consult individual course sections for semester offering pattern, or see an engineering advisor.
