Industrial and Systems/Manufacturing Engineering

Students with an interest in both areas can pursue a dual B.S.E. program in Industrial Systems and Manufacturing Engineering and thus can earn two B.S.E. degrees at the same time:

  • B.S.E. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering
  • B.S.E. degree in Manufacturing Engineering

The dual degree program requires specified coursework that equals a minimum of 143 total credits.  

Major Requirements

A candidate for the dual Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E. in Industrial and Systems Engineering and B.S.E. in Manufacturing Engineering) is required to pursue scholastic quality and to complete satisfactorily the following program of study:

(143 hours minimum)

Dearborn Discovery Core Requirement

The minimum GPA for the program is 2.0. In addition, the DDC permits any approved course to satisfy up to three credit hours within three different categories. Please see the General Education Program: The Dearborn Discovery Core section for additional information.
