(d) Summer Training Program (Pass/Fail Grade; Zero credit hours)


Each student must participate in a summer training program of industrial experience, submit a formal written report on his work during the program, and give an oral presentation (seminar). The period of training must be at least eight consecutive weeks. The student is eligible for summer training after completing a minimum of 95 credit hours.


(e) Degree requirements for the Industrial Engineering with Internship


The total requirement for the regular B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering without Internship is 128 semester credit hours. The course requirements for the Industrial Engineering BS program with Internship are very similar to the regular BS program described above, differing only in the following:

i. Two courses, with a total of 6 credit hours, are dropped from the requirements. Two ISE Electives are dropped from the requirements (a total of 6 credits). These courses are replaced by ISE 398, Internship (6 credit hours).

ii. When the student returns from coop he submits a report about his Internship experience but he has to register for ISE 482 (3 credit hours) separately and write his design project under this course.
iii. Internship ISE 398 (6 credit hours).

Each student must participate in one regular semester of industrial training approved by the department and must submit a comprehensive report on his work during that period. The student is permitted to start his internship work after completing a minimum of 95 credit hours. The internship student must attain an overall GPA of 2.0 and a major GPA of 2.0 prior to starting his internship work.
