Academic Planning Worksheet: Industrial & Systems Engineering

Preparation for your intended major is a factor in the review of your UW transfer application. Use this worksheet to help you plan for admission to your intended major and for UW general education requirements.


Department admission information

This major is capacity-constrained. Completion of prerequisites does not guarantee admission. Transfer students must submit two separate applications: one to the Office of Admissions and one to the major

Application deadline

Autumn admission: April 5

To be eligible to apply, you must have a 2.0 minimum GPA in each prerequisite course and a 2.5 cumulative GPA in all the prerequisites. These are minimums; the actual GPA of those admitted is much higher.To plan your transfer, be sure to utilize the Engineering transfer admission website, and contact the department if you have additional questions. A separate departmental application is required in addition to the UW application for admission.


Required courses for admission to major

Directions: Record the courses you have taken, are taking or plan to take prior to UW enrollment that you believe are equivalent to the UW course requirements listed below. Not sure? Use the transfer course equivalency guide.

UW Course Dept. Prefix & Number Term/Year
Example: MATH 124 – Calculus I MATH 151 AUT 08
MATH 124 NW QSR - Calculus Analytic Geometry I
MATH 125 NW - Calculus Analytic Geometry II
MATH 126 NW - Calculus Analytic Geometry III
CHEM 142 NW QSR - General Chemistry
CHEM 152 NW QSR - General Chemistry
PHYS 121 NW Q/SR – Mechanics
PHYS 122 NW - Electromagnetism
PHYS 123 NW – Waves
English composition C

Additional information

  • Completion of 45 credits by department application deadline required.
  • Transfer applicants are urged to complete the following courses before their junior year: MATH 307, MATH 308, CSE 142, AA 210, CEE 220 ME 230, EE 215 and MSE 170. Without the two additional math and computer programming classes, students will not be able to start their junior year sequences of ISE courses. Without completing at least three of the engineering fundamentals (preferred: AA 210, CEE 220 and ME 230) it will be difficult to finish in two years without taking summer classes.
