Students must select 15 units of ISyE program electives. Nine units of these electives must be upper division within the school of engineering.   Three of the remaining six units must be upper division. The current approved engineering upper division electives include ISYE 380ISYE 410, ISYE 450, and most ISYE 494 special topics courses. Consult with the ISyE chair for other approved electives.

Core Curriculum Requirements:

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.
