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.
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. Over half of the course work for the degree is completed in ENGR/IMSE or professionally related courses.

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.
