IEMS courses

IEMS has a “Waitlist” website that students should utilize to request a permission number for available IEMS courses. Please note that IEMS-300 level courses are reserved for IEMS undergrad students first, then undergrads in general, and finally to grad students. The website is geared more towards IEMS undergrads, so not all information is applicable to MEM students.
