Technical and General Electives


  1. Options 1 and 2 listed below are available to students who entered UF before 2015.
    1. Complete 9 hours of technical electives.
    2. Complete 6 hours of technical electives and 3 hours of general electives.  You must complete a departmental petition for the general elective option.
    3. Students who entered UF in 2015 or after are required to complete 5 hours a technical electives and don’t have the general option.


  • General Electives are 3000-level or above courses required for a minor degree program or in areas complementary to industrial and systems engineering.
  • Technical Electives are 3000-level or above courses with significant scientific and/or technical content.
  1. Choose Your General and Technical Electives Wisely

    ISE students are strongly encouraged to make the best use of the general and technical electives requirement, by making a cohesive choice of courses that will strengthen your understanding through their interaction, and give you more depth in a specific area. In particular, you may wish to prepare for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is a first step in obtaining a professional engineer (PE) license, or you may want to pursue a minor in Business, Sales Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, or some other technical area. Information on the PE exam process can be found at National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying, and information on minors that have been popular with ISEs can be accessed in the menu to the right.

  2. Pre-Approved General and Technical Electives

    The courses listed below are pre-approved for general and technical elective credits. You should discuss these choices with your adviser, and any course from this list will automatically be accepted in your SASS audit. This list will be reviewed by the faculty and updated each semester

  3. Other Choices

    Other 3000-level or above courses that fit the above definitions in Business, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics and Physics may be used as general or technical electives by submitting the online technical and general elective petition along with supporting documents.
