Notes


*Prerequisite for ENGL 415 is a “B” or better in ENGL 100.  ENGL 200 must be taken if ENGL 100’s grade is less than or equal to a “C”.

**Concurrent or prerequisite requirement for IMSE 591 is 24 credit hours of IMSE courses.

Substitutions: ECON 110 can substitue for ECON 120. IMSE 501 can substitute for MANGT 420; IMSE 591 and IMSE 592 can substitute for IMSE 580.

Humanities and Social Science electives are to be selected from the College of Engineering Humanities and Social Science Elective list.

IMSE Electives: The IMSE electives must be selected from the IMSE department. Each class must also be at least 3 credit hours.

IMSE Assembly Requirement: Each semester a student must enroll in IMSE 015 unless he/she is a concurrent B.S./M.S.I.E. student in which case he/she must enroll in either IMSE 015 or IMSE 892.

Computer Programming Elective: The computer programming elective must be taken from the following courses: CIS 200, CIS 209 or ME 400.

Engineering Electives: The 9 credit hours of basic engineering credit may not include more than 6 credit hours from a single department and the 9 credit hours must be selected from the following courses. Note, a student planning to take the FE exam would be advised to take their 9 credit hours from classes with an *. BAE 345; CE 333, 530* (at most one of 333 and 530) and 533; CHE 350, 354*, 355*, 356*, 520 and 521; ECE 410, 511, 519* and 571; ME 512*, 513, 571 and 573.

Professional Electives: The 9 credit hours of professional electives are designed so that the student may specialize in an area of interest.  Any of the following classes may count toward the professional elective requirement.  Any IMSE class; any engineering class above 300 level; any CIS class above 200 level; MATH 240 and any Mathematics class above 500 level except MATH 570 and 591; any Statistics class above 500 level except STAT 702, 703, 706 and 710; BIOL 198, BIOL 201, CHEM 230; FINAN 450, 510, 520, 520, 643, and 654; ACCTG 241, 331, 342 and 433; ECON 510, 520, 530, and 540; AGEC 680, 750.

Most students will fill these tags with their humanities, social science or professional electives. ECON 110 fulfills the global perspective area. For additional information about the General Education K-State 8 program, check the requirements specified by the College of Engineering.

IMSE Graduation Criterion: At most 6 credit hours of IMSE 500+ courses that earned a D may be applied to a student’s B.S.I.E. graduation requirements.

IMSE Course Retake Criterion: Any IMSE course being taken for a third time in any five-year period may not be used to fulfill a student’s B.S.I.E. graduation requirements.
