BSIE in Industrial Engineering

Degree Program Description

The Bachelor of Science In Industrial engineering has a curriculum similar to all engineering students 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.  The curriculum prepares the student to practice in an ethical and professional manner, to serve as well as benefit from the engineering profession, and to continue the learning of and the contribution to the advancement of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering concepts.

Degree Audit


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 who have attended since August 2007 can request a degree audit by logging in to myZou and navigating to Self Service, then Student Center, and clicking on “Request Degree Audit.” The audit automatically pulls in the student’s MU course work, transfer courses and courses in progress.

MU students who have NOT attended since August 2007 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

For newly admitted or prospective students, MU degree audits can be created at 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
