  • Degree: Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering
The mission of the bachelor of science in industrial engineering program is to deliver a hands-on, laboratory-intensive undergraduate education that provides students with the tools and skills to excel in the profession as they pursue lifelong learning and make positive contributions to society. With an emphasis on integrated systems and a strategic partnership with LuleĆ University of Technology in Sweden, the B.S.I.E. program offers unique opportunities for study abroad, undergraduate research, and technical electives to develop an enhanced global perspective. The educational objectives of the industrial engineering program are to produce graduates who are able to: 1. Solve industrial engineering problems by applying contemporary engineering tools to propose and implement effective solutions. 2. Design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. 3. Contribute as informed, ethical, and responsible members of the engineering profession and society as a whole. 4. Continue lifelong professional development throughout their career. 5. Collaborate and communicate effectively with others as a member or leader of an engineering or multidisciplinary team in an international setting. Industrial engineering integrates topics from manufacturing, management, service, and traditional design. Industrial engineers are proficient in the design, improvement, and management of complex systems of people, materials, equipment, and energy. They study and adapt product designs and the associated plant facilities to optimize production, while considering economic, technical, and human factors. The curriculum rounds out the learning experience by providing skills in the mathematical and physical sciences, economics, composition, and humanities and social sciences. The industrial engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: 410-347-7700. The program emphasizes manufacturing engineering and engineering management. The international engineering concentration requires a senior year exchange with the Department of Materials and Manufacturing Engineering at LuleĆ University of Technology in Sweden and provides students with the opportunity to experience engineering in the global community. The industrial and systems engineering concentration emphasizes the overall perspective of people and productivity, in any type of system, including manufacturing, service, health care, transportation, communication, and agriculture. The international engineering concentration offers a unique opportunity to study engineering in another culture; space is limited. Courses are taught in English and opportunities for travel and externally-focused projects abound. Honors Requirements: To graduate with department honors, a student must graduate with a 3.40 GPA, be an active member of Tau Beta Pi or a professional engineering society (ASME, ASSE, IIE, or MSPE), and be nominated by a department faculty member.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Freshman and transfer students are usually admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.
Freshman, sophomores, and transfer students may declare an IE major and admitted to lower division status. Admission to upper division B.S.I.E. program is competitive and based on performance in lower division courses and space availability. To be considered students must complete the MIE Application to Upper Division. The following requirements must be met: * Completion of the following courses or their transfer equivalents: - WRIT 1120 - CS 1121 or 1511 or 2121 - IE 1225 - CE 2017 - ME 2105 - MATH 3280 * A cumulative UMD GPA of 2.50 or above * Successful completion with grades of C- or better of all required program course taken at UMD or within the University of Minnesota system. * Successful completion with grades of C or better of all required program courses transferred from outside the University of Minnesota system. Applicants not meeting these requirements may be admitted to the upper division B.S.I.E. program on a space-available basis.
For information about University of Minnesota admission requirements, visit the Office of Admissions website.
General Requirements
The Board of Regents, on recommendation of the faculty, grants degrees from the University of Minnesota. Requirements for an undergraduate degree from University of Minnesota Duluth include the following:
  1. Students must meet all course and credit requirements of the departments and colleges or schools in which they are enrolled including an advanced writing course. Students seeking two degrees must fulfill the requirements of both degrees. However, two degrees cannot be awarded for the same major.
  2. Students must complete all requirements of the Liberal Education Program.
  3. Students must complete a minimum of 120 semester credits.
  4. At least 30 of the last 60 degree credits earned immediately before graduation must be awarded by UMD.
  5. Students must complete at least half of their courses at the 3xxx-level and higher at UMD. Study-abroad credits earned through courses taught by UM faculty and at institutions with which UMD has international exchange programs may be used to fulfill this requirement.
  6. If a minor is required, students must take at least three upper division credits in their minor field from UMD.
  7. The minimum cumulative UM GPA required for graduation will be 2.00 and will include only University of Minnesota coursework. A minimum UM GPA of 2.00 is required in each UMD undergraduate major and minor. No academic unit may impose higher grade point standards to graduate.
  8. Diploma, transcripts, and certification will be withheld until all financial obligations to the University have been met.
Program Requirements
Requirements for the B.S.I.E. include: * Successful completion with grades of C- or better, or S, of all required program courses taken at UMD or within the University of Minnesota system. * Successful completion with grades of C or better of all required program course transferred from outside the University of Minnesota system. * Acceptance to the upper division BSIE program and either the Industrial and System Engineering or International Engineering sub-plan. Maintenance Standards: Continuation of upper division status requires students to be in good academic standing. BSIE upper division students placed on academic probation or who have been academically dismissed by the Swenson College of Science and Engineering will also be removed from upper division BSIE status.
Program Sub-plans
Students are required to complete one of the following sub-plans. (Note for the Twin Cities and Morris campuses: The honors sub-plan does not meet this requirement. Honors students are required to complete one sub-plan plus the honors sub-plan. Please see an adviser if no honors sub-plan is listed for the program.)
Industrial and Systems Engineering Program
The industrial and systems engineering concentration emphasizes the overall perspective of people and productivity in any type of system, including manufacturing, service, health care, transportation, communication, and agriculture. Concentration electives allow students to study systems of interest to them.
