Admission Requirements

  • Students wanting to declare a major in an engineering discipline must be in good academic standing and must have a “C” (2.0) or better in each of the following courses or their equivalents: MAC 2311C , MAC 2312 , PHY 2048C , and CHM 2045C  or CHS 1440 .
  • Students wanting to declare a major in an engineering discipline must complete a change of major in the term of completion of the final pending prerequisite course(s) listed above.

Degree Requirements

  • Each engineering student is assigned a qualified engineering academic advisor in the department of his/her major. Each student should seek academic advisement before registering for classes each semester to minimize excess hours and to ensure that satisfactory academic progress is being maintained.
  • Students in the Industrial Engineering major are expected to make consistent good progress toward their degrees to remain enrolled in, or eligible for, any major in the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) or the College of Optics and Photonics (COP). Therefore,any student majoring in Industrial Engineering who repeats any UCF course and does not earn a grade of “C” (2.0) or better on the second attempt will be placed on Lack of Progress Probation and remain on Lack of Progress Probation as long as the student is enrolled in a CECS or COP major. If a student on Lack of Progress Probation does not receive a grade of “C” (2.0) or better by the third attempt in the same UCF course, the student will be excluded from all CECS and COP majors. Any student majoring in Industrial Engineering who has accumulated 7 or more unsuccessful attempts (i.e., grades below “C” (2.0) and withdrawals) over all courses taken at UCF will be placed on Lack of Progress Probation and remain on Lack of Progress Probation as long as the student is enrolled in a CECS or COP major. If a student on Lack of Progress Probation has a tenth unsuccessful attempt over all courses taken at UCF, the student will be excluded from all CECS and COP majors.
  • A student who is excluded from CECS and COP majors may seek readmission to a major in CECS or COP after at least one full year has passed since exclusion. Readmission is not automatic and is dependent upon a high probability of success after readmission. Any student who is readmitted to the Industrial Engineering major will be subject to all probation conditions that applied at the time of exclusion.

General Education Program (GEP) (38 Credit Hours)


  • The UCF General Education Program (GEP) is described in the section, General Education Program, found elsewhere in this catalog. Engineering students should closely study the requirements of the UCF GEP and the allowable substitutions detailed in paragraphs A. through E. below to minimize excess hours. Students transferring to UCF from within the Florida College System or State University System should complete the GEP and the Common Program Prerequisites before transferring.

Communication Foundations (9 Credit Hours)


Cultural & Historical Foundations (9 Credit Hours)


Mathematical Foundations (7 Credit Hours)


Social Foundations (6 Credit Hours)


Select One: (3 Credit Hours)


Science Foundations (7 Credit Hours)


Common Program Prerequisites (CPP) (19 Credit Hours)


These courses are specifically required for all engineering students of the Florida State University System. CPP courses are also available at other Florida postsecondary schools and may be transferred directly to UCF programs. A 2.0 cumulative GPA or better is required for those courses in this section.

See “Common Prerequisites ” in the Transfer and Transitions Services section for more information.

Courses Required for the Major (60 Credit Hours)


The Industrial Engineering and Management Systems department requires all students within the major to achieve a “C” (2.0) GPA or better in all courses in this section with a prefix of EIN, EGS, ESI, STA and MAS.

1 Courses with significant programming content in C, C++ or Java may be used to satisfy this requirement but must be approved by the IEMS undergraduate coordinator.

Restricted Electives (5 Credit Hours)


  • Technical electives are available in the BSIE program to address specific student interests in a variety of technical areas. Students should consult with their assigned academic advisor for a list of the approved technical electives and the terms when specific courses of this type are to be offered.
