The undergraduate curriculum leads to the degree, bachelor of science in industrial engineering (IE). This curriculum is accredited under the General Criteria and Industrial Engineering Program Criteria by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 – telephone: (410) 347-7700, http://www.abet.org.
The IE curriculum has its program educational objectives as follows:
The IE curriculum is preparing its graduates during their professional careers to
- Make industrial engineering decisions that result in well-reasoned, value-added solutions.
- Engage in communications with stakeholders that are informative, persuasive, and constructive.
- Contribute to achieve team goals through effective team interactions and leadership.
- Acquire new skills and knowledge that advance professional practice and enable career advancement.
The IE Program currently has the following student outcomes.
(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
(c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g) an ability to communicate effectively
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
(l) an ability to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy
(m) an ability to provide leadership in multi-functional teams.
These student outcomes, that are to be attained by the time of graduation, will prepare Industrial Engineering graduates to attain the program educational objectives.
