Industrial and Systems Engineering Major

Industrial and Systems Engineering Major

Students entering the University of San Diego and/or declaring a major during 2012-2014, should follow information contained in the printed course catalog (also known as the "catalog of record") published on October 1, 2014. Access the catalog of record at http://catalogs.sandiego.edu.

Requirements for the ISyE Major (147 units)

The mathematics, science, and engineering courses listed below also satisfy the core curriculum requirements in mathematics competency, natural sciences, and the upper division writing course.

Mathematics and Basic Science requirements (36 units):

MATH 150Calculus I4
MATH 151Calculus II4
MATH 250Calculus III4
MATH 310Applied Mathematics for Science and Engineering I3
MATH 320 Linear Algebra
ISYE 330Engineering Probability and Statistics3

Life Science Elective3

Engineering Core Requirements (19-22 units):

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

ELEC 201Electrical Circuits4
ENGR 101Introduction to Engineering3
ENGR 102Introduction to Engineering Design3
ENGR 121Engineering Programming3
COMP 150 Computer Programming I
ENGR 311Engineering Materials Science3
MENG 210Statics3
MENG 260Introduction to Thermal Sciences3
PHYS 272 Introduction to Modern Physics

Engineering Professional Practice Requirements (9 units)

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

ISYE 220Engineering Economics3
PHIL 342Engineering Ethics3
COMM 203Public Speaking 13
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 (50 units)

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

ISYE 310Work Analysis and Design4
ISYE 320Introduction to Systems Engineering3
ISYE 335Statistical Process Control4
ISYE 340Operations Research I3
ISYE 350 & ISYE 350LManufacturing Processes
   and Manufacturing Processes Laboratory
4
ISYE 391WIndustrial and Systems Engeering Professionl Practice3
ISYE 420Simulation of Production and Service Systems4
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 Project2

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 approved offerings of ISYE 494 courses. Consult with an ISyE advisor 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.
