Engineering Honors students majoring in Industrial Engineering (ISEN) must satisfy the academic and non-academic requirements for this track.

Below, we have also included a list of features available to students on this track, a sample course plan to be used as a guide when selecting courses each semester, as well as some curriculum notes.

Academic Requirements

Students must earn at least 21 hours of honors credits (undergraduate honors courses with HNR prefix or graduate courses) in courses offered by the College of Engineering or Science*.

*Any course offered by the College of Science (e.g., biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, or statistics) can be used to fulfill Engineering Honors requirements, as long as it is approved as part of the student's degree plan.

Your hours must consist of the following:

  • At least 12 hours must be engineering credit (including honors ENGR courses plus honors courses from all departments or majors)
  • At most 3 hours can come from satisfactory/unsatisfactory coursework
  • No more than 6 hours of graduate courses registered for undergraduate credit
  • At least 6 hours of research (491H) taken as part of the Undergraduate Research Scholars (URS) program**
    • If using, no more than 2 hours of directed studies (ENGR 485H)**
  • 1 hour of Engineering Honors Seminar (ENGR 181H)
  • At least 3 honors credits in a ISEN 400-level or approved graduate course

For ways to earn honors credit, please visit the General Requirements page.

**Students can use no more than 6 hours of research toward the total 18 hours. Research credits can consist of 485H and/or 491H.

Graduation requirements:

  • Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher
    • Earn a GPA of 3.25 or higher in honors courses
  • Earn no grade lower than a B in the required honors courses
  • Receive no honor code violations
  • Complete a thesis with the Undergraduate Research Scholars (URS) Program
  • Take at least one approved honors course during each academic year (and pass with a grade of B or better) 

Non-Academic Requirements

  • Honors Required Meeting: Meet with the ISEN Track Coordinator during each academic year in which they attend courses on the Texas A&M University College Station campus.
  • Activity: Participate in at least one Engineering Honors-ISEN programs approved activities (marked with an * on the calendar) each regular semester (fall and spring) in which they are registered for courses on the Texas A&M College Station campus.
  • Annual Report: Submit an annual Engineering Honors report in May of each year.

Features of this Track

  • Renewable Academic Scholarship: Students who have active status in the ISEN track of Engineering Honors are eligible to apply for an annual scholarship from the ISEN Department.
  • Special honors faculty advisors: The ISEN Engineering Honors Coordinator serves as an advisor for the students in the Engineering Honors ISEN track and meets with each student in the program at least once during each semester that the student is in residence on Texas A&M College Station campus. Additionally, each Engineering Honors scholar in the ISEN track will be assigned a faculty mentor after their first semester in the program based on their research and career interests.
  • Other benefits: Engineering Honors Scholars in the ISEN track have priority for paid summer and academic year research internships, special opportunities to interact with departmental industrial partners who have internship and full-time employment opportunities, opportunities to be peer teachers, and access to travel funds to attend technical conferences.

Curriculum Notes

  • Undergraduate research courses (ISEN 291H, ISEN 491H) and independent study courses (ISEN 285H, ISEN 485H) require prior approval in addition to the standard departmental procedures.
  • Any 600-level ISEN course can be used for honors credit except for ISEN 681, ISEN 684, ISEN 685, ISEN 691.
  • Engineering Honors Scholars may request to use 6 hours of ISEN 491H to replace two of the technical electives in the ISEN degree plan. This replacement requires prior approval.
