Industrial engineers analyze, design, and transform complex systems of people, processes, and technology to accomplish organizational goals. To this end, the program educational objectives of the Industrial Engineering program are what we expect our students to attain within three to five years of graduation.
Bachelor of Science (B.S. Degree)
The B.S. Program in Industrial Engineering is designed to prepare students with the ability to apply their knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and other skills necessary to analyze and interpret data for use in modern engineering practices and problem-solving.
Minor in Industrial Engineering
Those who do not wish to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering but would like to work towards a minor in this field may do so. To receive a minor in Industrial Engineering, a student must complete the following courses with a grade of C or better in each:
- IE 3301
- IE 3312
- IE 3315
- Plus any three upper division IE courses for which the prerequisites are satisfied.
The BS to MS fast track allows qualified UT Arlington undergraduate students to enter directly into the MSIE program, selecting either the non-thesis option or the thesis option. The essential element of the program is that the student can count up to three courses for both the BS degree and the MS degree. In effect, the MSIE becomes a 27-hour program. This allows students to graduate with the MSIE degree one semester earlier than would otherwise be the case.
We see the fast track as a very important program that will allow us to recruit our most talented undergraduate students into graduate education. We hope to develop a larger pool of research-capable students.

I've taken some courses at another university or community college, are my classes transferable?
To see which classes are directly transferable, view the Transfer Equivalency Guide. Courses not listed in the guide may still be transferable, but are not guaranteed. Also, UT Arlington does not accept a "D" or lower in transfer. Read more about transferring credit.
