The Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering welcomes transfer students from Illinois community colleges. Students find it easy to continue their studies at NIU if they plan well. Therefore, following the course guidelines in this brochure while completing an Associate's in Science (A.S.) Degree is highly recommended (1). Students should always work closely with their community college advisor. Please contact the Natural and Applied Sciences Division at the College of DuPage for more help in planning your academic career.

|ENGIN 2210||Circuit Analysis & Theory||ELE 210|
|Courses in Humanities/Fine Arts and Social/Behavioral Science as required.|
| Only A.A. and A.S. degrees satisfy NIU's general education requirements.|
It is recommended that two or three courses in Humanities/Social Sciences be taken at COD and the rest at NIU. NIU's College of Engineering and Engineering Technology no longer requires sequences in Social Sciences and Humanities. Therefore, students only need to satisfy NIU's general education requirements.
When choosing general education/core competency courses please consult with your COD advisor, verify general education requirements in the NIU Undergraduate Catalog, and check the Community College Articulation Tables for transferability.
Remaining classes to be taken at NIU's College of Engineering and Engineering Technology to earn a major in Industrial and Systems Engineering.
