Service Enterprise Engineering Minor

University Park, College of Engineering (SEENG_UMNR)

Service sector represents over 80% of the economy and represents over 70% of jobs in the U.S. Service enterprises constitute a wide range in terms of labor intensity, information intensity, and prevailing productivity. Examples of service enterprises include hospitals, retailers, banks, financial institutions, and airlines. This mnior is designed for students interested in learning about applying industrial engineering techniques to service enterprises. Students completing this minor will gain an understanding of applying industrial engineering and operations research tools for modeling, analysis, design and control of service enterprises.

In addition to the stated courses for the minor, students in IE pursuing this minor may require HPA 301 or HDFS 129. Students in HPA, HDFS and any other major will require MATH 220 as a prerequisite for IE 405. IE 405 and IE 322 (or an equivalent course in probability and statistics) are prerequisites for IE 460.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
