The Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering incorporates mathematics, natural sciences, economics and other social and engineering sciences to optimize complex processes or systems. Industrial and systems engineering is concerned with the development, improvement, and implementation of integrated systems of people, economics, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials. Analysis and synthesis of information acquired from these disciplines increases productivity and decreases wasted resources.

  1. Minimum high school or transfer cumulative GPA of 3.5
  2. Minimum composite ACT of 28 or composite SAT of 1310-1340 (post 2016 version)
  3. Minimum mathematics ACT of 26 or mathematics SAT of 620 (post 2016 version)

At the beginning of the fourth semester, students formally apply for full admission into the engineering program. The Dean of the School of Science and Engineering, and the science, mathematics, and engineering faculty, review student suitability for full entrance into the Industrial and Systems Engineering program based on:

  1. Performance in completed courses within the engineering program
  2. Letters of Recommendation from two CCU faculty members
