Additional Credit Requirements
In addition to the minimum credit requirements listed above, the following requirements must be met by students in either option:
Graduate Student-Only Credits
At least one-third of the graduate credit hours (13 hours) must be earned from graduate-only courses. Seminar (ISE 630) and Technical Writing (ET 602) count towards this requirement but research courses (ISE 681, 694, 695) do not.
Up to 9 hours of dual listed courses that are listed with a 400-level undergraduate required can be counted for graduate credit in the plan of study.
Any number of hours of dual listed courses that are listed with a 400-level undergraduate elective can be counted for graduate credit in the plan of study.
Any course that is dual listed with a 100, 200 or 300 level can not be counted for graduate credit in the plan of study.
A maximum of twelve graduate credit hours may be taken from outside the ISE Department, provided that the courses are listed in the Plan of Study and are approved by the thesis advisor and the Chair of the ISE Graduate Committee.
Up to a total of six hours of ISE 589/590 (Independent Study, topic subject to prior approval by the thesis advisor) may be taken for graduate credit.
A maximum of twelve credit hours may be transferred from an accredited university and used for the master's degree program, if approved by the ISE Graduate Committee and the Associate Dean of the College of Engineering and Technology.
- Authorization for Transfer of Credit for graduate students must be submitted to the ISE Department and the Russ College of Engineering and Technology.
- The credits to be transferred must have been designated as graduate credit applicable for an advanced degree and taught by the graduate faculty at the institution where they were taken.
- The credits must be letter graded B or better and must have been earned within the past five years.
- Credit for courses taken by correspondence is not accepted.
Fee Waivers and Assistantships
A graduate student receiving a fee waiver or assistantship must be a full-time student, registered for 15 hours each quarter. ISE 681 (Research) can be used as desired to meet this requirement. ISE 681 will receive a CR (credit), but will not count towards graduate credit.
