Admission to Special Elective Tracks

The ISE department requires students to apply to the following two technical elective tracks:

  1. Data Analytics & Optimization
  2. Supply Chain Management & Logistics

Due to course sequencing, it takes at minimum three full semesters to complete these track requirements. Entry into these tracks is highly competitive, as there is only space for a limited number of students in the required courses. Students are permitted to apply to both tracks. If they are accepted into both, they will be required to choose one.
