Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Option in Industrial Management Engineering (135 units)

Not accepting new students as of Fall 2012.

An interdisciplinary degree in which both the College of Business Administration and the College of Engineering provide courses which enable students to have a technical engineering background, plus a good foundation in business and management practices. The option consists of core engineering courses through the junior year, with the addition of business courses in accounting, business law, management, inventory practices and operations research. The elective structure is such that the student may specialize in either engineering, or a combination of both engineering and business.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade of "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122 within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade of "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 123 and PHYS 151 within one calendar year.
