7 For the current list of the technical electives, go to our Approved ISE Technical Electives page.
8 To earn a Health Systems Engineering Certificate, students will take ISE 520 as a technical elective and ISE 521 instead of ISE 498.
* General Education Program (GEP) requirements: To complete the requirements for graduation and the General Education Program, the following credit hours and co-requisites must be satisfied. University approved GEP course lists for each category can be found at https://oucc.dasa.ncsu.edu/general-education-program-gep/gep-course-lists-2/.
- One fitness and wellness course (any PE 100-level course).
- One additional credit hour of PE activity courses.
HUMANITIES – 6 credits to be selected in two different disciplines (two different course prefixes) from the approved GEP Humanities list.
SOCIAL SCIENCES – 3 credits to be selected in a discipline other than economics from the approved GEP Social Sciences list. EC 205 taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 6 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Social Sciences requirement.
ADDITIONAL BREADTH – 3 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Humanities, Social Sciences or Visual and Performing Arts lists.
INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES – 5 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives list. Ethics course taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 5-6 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives requirement.
Co-requisites: U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites must be satisfied to complete the General Education requirements. Choose course(s) that are identified on the approved GEP course lists as meeting the U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites.
Foreign Language proficiency at the FL_102 level will be required for graduation.
