Sample Program Guide

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: A Sample Program Guide provides an unofficial guide of program requirements and should be used by prospective students who are considering attending NDSU in the future. It is NOT an official curriculum and should NOT be used by current NDSU students for official degree planning purposes. Note that the official curriculum used by current NDSU students can vary from the Sample Program Guide due to a variety of factors such as, but not limited to, start year, education goals, transfer credit, and course availability.

To ensure proper program completion, enrolled students should utilize Degree Map and Schedule Planner in Campus Connection and consult regularly with their academic advisor to ensure requirements are being met.

  • Grades less than ‘C’ will not be accepted for required courses in CHEM, MATH, and PHYS.
  • Students may request approval for other 300-400 level engineering or related courses to be approved as technical electives. To request approval, a student should submit a request to the IME Department indicating the course of interest and why the course should be approved as a technical elective. This request will be reviewed by the IME Department Chair for approval. 

  • 300-400 level BUSN courses require at least junior standing and a minimum 2.50 cumulative GPA.
