The EMIS department offers a Bachelor of Science (Major in Management Science) undergraduate degree. There are several phases in the process of completing this degree and different advising for each phase.
First-year undergraduates seeking an engineering degree initially enter SMU’s Dedman College. To be admitted to the Lyle School of Engineering and the Management Science program, a
student must complete 24 credit hours, have a GPA of 3.000 or higher in a specific set of classes, and be approved by the EMIS department chair. (See SMU Undergraduate
Catalog for details.)
During this time, your advisor will be the Lyle School’s Director of Undergraduate Advising, who can advise you on meeting graduation requirements that are not part of
the Management Science major.
