Program Sub-plans
A sub-plan is not required for this program.
Integrated B.ISyE/MS.ISyE
Students can prepare for a rewarding career in the area of Analytics by earning both a Bachelor's in ISyE and a Master of Science in ISyE (Analytics track) in just five years through ISyE’s integrated B.ISyE/M.S. in ISyE program. Students in the integrated program can save both time and money without sacrificing any aspect of the undergraduate or graduate experience. Benefits of the Integrated Program The integrated program offers streamlined early admission to the MS program and the possibility of early completion of the MS degree. ISyE undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the integrated program as early as spring of their junior year and receive an admission decision by that summer. Admitted students can start earning course credit toward their graduate degree during their senior year. Students who begin their freshman year with credit for three or more Bachelor’s courses can often complete both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees within five years (10 semesters). Completion of the Analytics track M.S. degree allows students to broaden and deepen their knowledge of analytics (optimization, operations research, data analysis, computation, and statistics) considerably beyond what is covered in the undergraduate curriculum. The Analytics track of the M.S. program includes rigorous coursework as well as an industry-sponsored capstone project. Further information about the Analytics track is available at https://cse.umn.edu/isye/ms-analytics.
Integrated Program Curriculum Students are required to have at least 122 course credits for the Bachelor's degree, and at least 30 additional credits for the Analytics track M.S. degree. Among the 30 M.S. credits, 24 are required course credits and 6 are approved elective credits. Credits cannot be shared between the two degrees; double counting of courses is not allowed. The sample program below provides just one example of how a student who entered the university as a freshman with three liberal education courses completed can earn the B.ISyE and M.S. in ISyE degrees in five years (10 semesters). Such a student could complete most technical elective courses during the junior year, and begin completing M.S. courses during the senior year. With this plan, the student would graduate with the B.ISyE degree at the end of the 4th year of study, and would graduate with the M.S. degree at the end of the 5th year of study. Students who entered the university without any credits are also eligible to apply to the integrated program, but they may need an additional semester to complete the Master’s degree. Sample Fourth- and Fifth-year Course Sequence This plan is not a contract and is subject to variation. Modifications of the sequence are allowed for those who have completed a different number of undergraduate technical electives. *Courses marked with asterisks count toward the M.S. degree and cannot also be used as technical electives for the B.ISyE degree. 4th Year Fall Semester IE 3553—Simulation IE 4511—Human Factors IE 4541W—Project Management STAT 5302—Applied Regression Analysis* 4th Year Spring Semester IE 4041W—Senior Design Undergraduate Technical Elective IE 5561—Analytics and Data-driven Decision Making* CSCI 5521—Intro to Machine Learning* OR CSCI 5523—Intro to Data Mining* Graduate with Bachelor's in ISyE at end of Year 4 5th Year Fall Semester IE 5773—Practice Focused Seminar* IE 5531—Engineering Optimization I* IE 5801—Capstone Project Course* ME 8001—Research Ethics and Professional Practice* 5th Year Spring Semester IE 5545—Decision Analysis* Approved M.S. Elective* Approved M.S. Elective* Graduate with M.S. at end of Year 5 Additional Notes No course may be counted toward both degrees. Credits from any individual course may be counted toward at most one of the degrees. Double counting of credits is not allowed. Courses that will be used to fulfill Master’s degree requirements must appear in this sub-plan by the tenth day of the semester in which the student is enrolled in the courses. Any final edits or updates to this sub-pan must be reflected on the APAS no later than the last day of instruction in the semester in which the undergraduate degree will be awarded. Courses in this sub-plan by that time cannot be updated at a later time; and, therefore will not be eligible for use towards the Master's degree.
