Industrial Engineering (B.S.) Online (2+2) Option
The Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) in a 2+2 online format. This program allows students to complete the final two years of an Industrial Engineering degree online with minimal travel from home. The program is designed for students who are unable to attend a traditional IE program due to geographic location and scheduling issues (work and other issues). The program also offers a lower-cost approach to becoming an Industrial Engineer.
The BSIE degree earned with this delivery method is identical to the degree earned by on-campus students. Our on-campus students often enroll in the same online courses due to co-op and employment at local companies.
The 2+2 online program is designed for students who have completed lower-division courses at a community college or four-year institution and want to finish their industrial engineering degree via online instruction. All junior and senior courses are delivered via online instruction, except for a 3-day manufacturing lab that requires a one weekend visit to Beaumont, Texas. Most freshmen and sophomore courses are also available online from Lamar University or at your local community college. A maximum of 66 hours can be transferred from 2-year community colleges. To ensure that your transfer credits are maximized, it is important that you speak with a college of engineering undergraduate advisor early in the application process
