Complementary & HSS Electives

"Complementary" elective courses aim at providing the student a method, technique and/or skill as a complement to Industrial Engineering. Special care must be taken for the course to be selected as "Complementary" so that its content does not coincide with an IE course. (New courses other than stated below are evaluated accordingly).

"Humanities & Social Sciences" elective courses aim at enriching the student's global perspective and intellectual level. The main characteristic of HSS courses is that they do not directly teach a method, technique and/or skill. (For example, a German teaching course cannot be counted as an HSS course, but a German literature course can).

"Unrestricted" elective courses aim at providing the student a broad flexibility for his/her individual development either technically or culturally. That is to say, an "Unrestricted" elective course can be, disregarding some rare exceptions, any course in the university that has a grade and a credit. Rare exceptions are those cases in which the course obviously coincides with a must course. These courses cannot be accepted as "Unrestricted" (For example, "Operations Research" and "Statistics" courses offered by the Department of Management). Further examples include AD 150, 351, 353, 503 and similarly most of the courses offered by the MIS Department.

Notes: 

1- For a course to be counted as elective, it must be taken with credit and letter grade basis 

2- When two or more courses below are listed with parenthesis - like Course xxx (or Course yyy) - only one of these courses can be counted as elective.
