Graduate Plan of Work
The Graduate Plan of Work is a document that serves both as a guide to successful degree completion and a contract between students and their programs. In this way, it serves to reduce the potential for misunderstandings about degree requirements and outlines the expected academic progress students should make.
Changing your Degree?
Applying to add a Ph.D. to your Masters can be done through the ISE Grad Office. You do NOT have to pay an application fee or use the Graduate School’s Slate System.
Want to change to a non-thesis Masters? Want to change departments?
To request a Change of Degree, contact the Graduate Services Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the first week of the semester, new ISE graduate students receive a special introduction to the ISE Department and NC State resources. This Orientation Handbook summarizes the seminar and serves as a reference for common questions and answers.

MBA Courses – Enrollment for ISE Graduate Students
