    A little of topic but my favorite non IE elective had to be African 100, it was very interesting learning about new culture and the professor was very knowledgeable.

    I really think 412 is a great elective. It has flexibility for different requirements, the exams are very fair and straightforward, and you get to learn R code and Tableau. R code is kind of boring but a very useful tool in many different situations, and Tableau is very fun to use.

    I agree with Alec. I think ISyE 412 was my favorite ISyE elective I took during my undergrad. I used it as my Quantitative Methods technical elective and I found the class both very interesting and useful. My favorite thing I learned in that class was Tableau. The skills you learn are extremely useful.

    Apart from 412, I think 549 is also a good one. It takes human factors engineering into more depth from what you learn in 349. On top of that, Prof. Silber is a really great professor. She knows her students really well.

    I really like ISYE 516 which is an elective about decision analysis.

    I really enjoyed ISYE 555 Human performance and accident causation. You get to analyze aviation accidents and see how engineering tools have drastically increased the safety of modern day aircrafts.

    I agree with previous replies that 412 is a great elective.  ISyE 517 was also a great elective if you are interested in the health care field.  You learn about how an Industrial Engineer can benefit hospitals using different decision analysis tools.

    I enjoyed ISyE 601 “Data Science for People” with Prof. John Lee.

    ISYE 662 is a very interesting elective that discusses designing for disabilities.

    ISYE 601 was a great class for me to learn how to apply techniques to promote efficient and replicable model development. I also learned how read, transform and visualize data with R.

    To fulfill an engineering science credit, I took BSE 367 Renewable Energy Systems. I took it over the summer, and it was a very interesting course. Not only did I learn about the physics and chemistry behind multiple different renewable energy sources, but I also learned about the economics of each source (deciding whether a source is economically feasible). The course was also self-paced with no synchronous lectures. I highly recommend taking this course if you are interested in renewable energy.
