Industrial Engineering Technology Major, B.S.E.T.

B.S.E.T. degree
Major Map

The Industrial Engineering Technology major will prepare graduates with the technical and managerial skills necessary to develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information,equipment, and energy. Graduates will be prepared for careers in system design, integration, manufacturing, and management.

All Industrial Engineering Technology students are required to complete the following required courses. Students must complete the coursework in major requirements and electives.

IET Mission Statement

The mission of the Industrial Engineering Technology program in the BS in Engineering Technology degree is to prepare students to be competent in the area of applied industrial engineering with the potential for growth in management and leadership.

Program Educational Objectives (PEO) for Industrial Engineering Technology

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of BSET-Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) program at CMU describe the expected accomplishments of the BSET-IET graduates during their first few years after graduation.

The main goal of the BSET-Industrial Engineering Technology program at CMU is to provide a competitive curriculum and learning environment that prepares graduates who will be able to:

  1. Attain employment and practice successfully in an industrial engineering technology related profession;
  2. Work in multi-disciplinary teams providing technical knowledge and effective communication as engineering technologists;
  3. Remain technically current through continuous learning and self-improvement;
  4. Understand and exhibit professional, ethical and social responsibility as they pursue their careers.

Industrial Engineering Technology Program Criteria

In addition to the Engineering Technology Student Outcomes, graduates of the Industrial Engineering Technology program will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and application practices and procedures;
  2. apply knowledge of probability, statistics, engineering economic analysis and cost control, and other technical sciences and specialties necessary in the field of industrial engineering technology.

Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards

The engineering and technology degree programs consist of extensive laboratory work that involves a close physical relationship with tools, moving machinery and electrical equipment necessitating specific safe practices. Examples include voltage checks, use of safety guards, and continuous observation of associated visual alarms, caution signs and auditory signals.

On-campus students must meet with an E&T advisor at least once a semester to discuss their progress in meeting the degree requirements. Global Campus students must consult with their degree plan advisor. Prerequisites will be strictly enforced for all engineering technology coursework.

A maximum of 6 semester hours of Credit/No Credit may be used on departmental majors (excluding computer, electrical and mechanical engineering) or minors. Credit/No Credit courses are identified in the Course Search & Registration.

Admission Requirements

Any student in good academic standing at CMU may declare a major in any of the engineering or engineering technology majors. However, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to enroll in all 200-, 300-, and 400-level engineering (EGR) and engineering technology (IET) courses. Students wishing to substitute EGR or IET courses at 300 level or above must obtain pre-approval from the School Director unless those courses appear on CMU’s What Will Transfer website: https://netconnect.cmich.edu/whatwilltransfer

Retention & Termination Standards

In order to remain a major in Industrial Engineering Technology, a student must meet the following criteria:

  1. Students must select courses in consultation with an engineering technology advisor.
  2. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to enroll in all 200-, 300-, and 400-level engineering (EGR) and engineering technology (IET) courses.
  3. At least 30 credits of IET courses must be taken at CMU to graduate with this major.
  4. If a student does not continue to meet the retention standards, s/he may be asked to withdraw from the major. The department maintains the right to terminate a student from the major if s/he is not progressing satisfactorily.
