The ISyE curriculum requires a broad set of courses early in a student’s matriculation. These are followed by a set of applied courses organized into five concentrations for students to choose from. A culminating capstone design or senior design provides the opportunity to apply previous knowledge.
BSIE offers a novel concentration system that allows the student to build both depth and breadth.

Regulations concerning Grades, Deficiencies, cross enrollment, etc, can be found here. Below, a few more common ones are listed below.
Incompletes. Students must arrange to remove the incomplete by the end of the next semester, or the grade will be automatically changed to F. A grade change form must be submitted by the instructor to the academic office.
Academic Standing. The minimum GPA for good academic standing is 1.7 for freshman, 1.8 for sophomores, 1.95 for juniors and 2.0 for seniors. Any student who has an overall average below the minimum or whose average for a given semester falls below the minimum requirement will be placed on academic warning and will be limited to a maximum course load of sixteen credit hours. A student on warning whose average for any semester falls below the minimum requirement for good standing will be placed on academic probation and will be limited to a maximum course load of fourteen credit hours. A student on probation whose average falls below the minimum requirements in any semester will be dropped from school for unsatisfactory scholarship.
Maximum Academic Load. Students in good standing may take up to 21 credit hours in any semester. Note that course loads exceeding 18 hours are typically not recommended except for exceptionally talented students.
Pass/Fail. Certain courses may be taken on a Pass/Fail basis. For ISyE students these are limited to social sciences, humanities and free electives. The maximum number of Pass/Fail credits is 3 for those with total of 45 – 70 hours at Georgia Tech; 6 for 71 – 90; and 9 for 91 or more. No ISyE courses may be taken on a Pass/Fail basis by a student seeking the BSIE degree.
Thirty-Six Hour Rule. The final thirty-six hours earned for a degree must be taken in residence at Georgia Tech.
Ten-Year Rule. Courses completed more than ten years prior to one’s graduation date must be validated by a special examination.
Repeating Courses. Courses which are passed normally may not be repeated. Students who wish to repeat such a course must first obtain approval in writing from their major department. Concurrence of the department in which the course is offered is also required.
Responsibilities. “Sloppiness” may not be tolerated by faculty such as overdue assignments, or missed examinations. Indeed, if an examination is missed or an assignment not completed on time without prior acknowledgment and/or explanation, the student should not routinely expect to be given extra time or an opportunity for any makeup work. It is also the student’s responsibility to know and/or to find out when exams, assignments, etc. have been re-scheduled.
Honor Code. Georgia Tech has an Honor Code and the faculty of ISyE is serious about upholding it. If you are deemed to be in violation of the Honor Code, ISyE faculty members are instructed to file a report accordingly with the Director of Undergraduate Studies who then forwards, to the Associate Dean of Students, all documentation related to alleged transgressions. Matters are then handled in the Dean’s Office.
