Industrial Engineering

Pass/Not-Pass Option

The pass/not-pass option is allowed only in the general education program. Technical electives must be taken for a grade. This option provides an opportunity for students to broaden their educational experience by taking advanced courses with minimal concern for grades earned due to the lack of necessary prerequisite material. Introductory courses should be taken for a grade. Physical education service courses, unless required for ROTC, should be taken with the pass/not-pass option. The general rules stated under the graduation requirements for engineering are in effect for all industrial engineering students.
