Integrated Vehicle Systems Engineering Concentration Requirements

The Interdisciplinary Engineering Degrees (MSE or MS) require 30 credit hours total with at least 18 hours in engineering and 18 hours from Purdue.  Courses can count in either or both categories and most are 3 credit hours.  You may add a concentration to your degree but a concentration is not required.  If chosen, the concentration requirements must be met in addition to the regular degree requirements.  A concentration is chosen on the e-POS form and shows on the transcript, not the diploma.

The list of courses offered via distance may be sorted by semester/year or school.  Please keep in mind that this list is subject to change and you will need to review it frequently throughout your degree program.  Changes may be made to your POS in the future if they meet the degree and concentration requirements.


Degree requirements checklist:

_____ INTV courses - see below (15 hours) 
_____ total number of engineering courses *  (18 hours)
_____ total number of Purdue courses  ( 18 hours)

_____ total credit hours (30 hours)

* Engineering courses  are offered by engineering schools and/or taught by engineering faculty such as AAE-Aeronautics & Astronautics, ABE - Agricultural & Biological Engineering, BME-Biomedical Engineering, CE-Civil Engineering, ECE-Electrical & Computer Engineering, EEE - Environmental & Ecological Engineering, IE-Industrial Engineering, ME-Mechanical Engineering, MSE - Materials Engineering, NUCL -Nuclear Engineering, SYS - Systems Engineering.   Examples of non-engineering courses are BIOL - Biological Sciences, CS-Computer Science, GRAD-Graduate studies, MA-Mathematics, STAT-Statistics, etc.

The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements. This website is a knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.

Note: The plan of study worksheet is an aid to help you understand the program requirements and map out a plan. The actual electronic plan of study ePOS is submitted via myPurdue during the first semester you're registered after admission to a degree program.
