BSIE in Industrial Engineering
Degree Program Description
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering has a core engineering curriculum during the first two years. The objective of this curriculum is to give the student a rigorous foundation in mathematics, natural sciences, basic engineering sciences, applied probability, and computer science, as well as a complementary and meaningful exposure to the humanities and social sciences.
Building on the core courses, students gain knowledge of optimization methodologies, human factors, data analytics and systems modeling. They also learn to model and evaluate integrated systems of people, technology and information in the areas of production and service system design, supply chain design and management, control systems, quality systems, sustainability, data engineering, product and process design. Students have the opportunity to obtain Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification and/or an interdisciplinary Global Supply Chain Management certificate while completing the program requirements.
Major Program Requirements
Students earning a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering are required to complete all University general education, University undergraduate requirements, degree, and major requirements, including selected foundational courses, which may fulfill some University general education requirements. Students are also required to complete one cultural awareness course which is selected from an approved list, created and maintained by the College of Engineering or which meets the Arts and Science (A&S) diversity requirement. Currently ECONOM 1014, which is required for the BSIE, meets this requirement. The curriculum is designed so that over half of the course work for the degree is completed in ENGR/IMSE or professionally related courses.

Accelerated BSIE to MS in Industrial Engineering
The accelerated option will allow students to earn a bachelors and masters degree within five years. Eligible students who have completed at least 90 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The academic requirements of the accelerated MS program will require a total of 30 graduate credit hours, to graduate. Accepted undergraduate students can take up to 12 hours of graduate level courses that will count toward both the undergraduate and the graduate degrees. Once the student has completed 126 credit hours, (includes at least 12 credit hours of dual enrollment), the corresponding bachelor’s degree will be conferred and they will become graduate students in our MS program to complete the remaining 18 hours of graduate credit. A minimum of 12 credit hours must be from courses at the 8000 level or above and of those classes 9 credit hours must be IMSE courses. The student's graduate course GPA must be 3.0 or greater.
Total credits required for graduation must be at least 144 total credit hours:
- Total undergraduate credit hours: 126
- Total dual enrollment credit hours: 12
- Total graduate credit hours: 30

The degree audit is an automated report reflecting a student’s academic progress toward the completion of a degree. Degree Audits are not available for all programs; however, please consult with the appropriate college or school for audit information.
MU students can request a degree audit by logging in to myDegreePlanner. Students may also access myDegreePlanner via myZou, in the Student Center, by clicking on the Request Degree Audit link. The audit automatically pulls in the student’s MU course work, transfer courses and courses in progress. This is available to current students, admitted students, and those who last attended less than three terms ago.
Past MU students can request a degree audit by contacting the Academic Advising Unit of the division in which they were last enrolled at MU. For contact information, go to http://advising.missouri.edu/contact/.
Prospective students, can access a preliminary MU degree audit via https://www.transferology.com/index.htm. Information on the college credits already earned will have to be manually entered before it can be evaluated against current degree requirements.
For additional details on degree audits, go to http://registrar.missouri.edu/degree-audits/index.php.
