Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering - Mizzou Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering has a core engineering curriculum during the first two years. The objective of this curriculum is to give the student a rigorous foundation in mathematics, natural sciences, basic engineering sciences, applied probability and computer science, as well as a complementary and meaningful exposure to the humanities and social sciences.

Building on the core courses, students gain knowledge of optimization methodologies, human factors, data analytics and systems modeling. They also learn to model and evaluate integrated systems of people, technology and information in the areas of production and service system design, supply chain design and management, control systems, quality systems, sustainability, data engineering, product and process design. Students have the opportunity to obtain Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification and/or an interdisciplinary Global Supply Chain Management certificate while completing the program requirements.

The program culminates with a unique capstone project. The IMSE capstone course is industry based and allows students to serve as consultants and help local businesses solve real-world problems.

Students have the opportunity to use their electives to create a focus area:

  • Decision Analytics – IMSE 4210, IMSE 4220, IMSE 4230, IMSE 4280, IMSE 4410
  • Operations/Production – IMSE 4310, IMSE 4330, IMSE 4350, ISME 4370
  • Supply Chain/Logistics – MGMT 4070, IMSE 4310, IMSE 4350, IMSE 4360, IMSE 4370
  • Advanced Manufacturing – IMSE 4500/4510, IMSE 4560, IMSE 4565, IMSE 4570
  • Human Factors – IMSE 3810, IMSE 4110, IMSE 4810

Dual BS and MS in Industrial Engineering

The accelerated option will allow students to earn a bachelors and master’s degree within five years. Eligible students who have completed at least 90 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher are eligible. The academic requirements of the accelerated MS program will require a total of 30 graduate credit hours to graduate. Accepted undergraduate students can take up to 12 hours of graduate level courses that will count toward both the undergraduate and the graduate degrees. Once the student has completed 126 credit hours (includes at least 15 credit hours of dual enrollment), the corresponding bachelor’s degree will be conferred, and they will become graduate students in our MS program to complete the remaining 18 hours of graduate credit. A minimum of 12 credit hours must be from courses at the 8000 level or above, and of those classes 9 credit hours must be IMSE courses. The student’s graduate course GPA must be 3.0 or greater.

Dual BS IE and MBA Program

Combine your industrial engineering skills with an understanding of business and management. This joint degree program administered through the School of Engineering and the Crosby MBA Program is available for students who wish to earn a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and a Master of Business Administration (MBA).
