Course Outline

   In the four-year daytime program, freshmen and sophomore students will concentrate on the fundamentals of engineering. In their junior and senior years, students will pursuit further studies within their chosen professional concentrations, along with cooperative education programs and a yearlong senior project that rounds out the students' education experience.

   In the two-year extended studies program, beginning first-year students will learn the basics industrial engineering and management theory. Returning second-year students will further pursue education an area of interest of their choosing, for which we will provide mentorship and venues for application.

   The department's Masters program currently includes Ergonomics, Production Automation, Manufacturing Systems and Operations Management as topics of study and research.

   Topics available for Professional Development:

  • Manufacturing and production systems layout, design, analysis, and setup related topics.
  • Quality control, Statistical control, Quality engineering, cost and reliability engineering topics.
  • Computer and technology related skills, the use of information technologies and its application towards Industrial and Corporate Management.

   In the four-year and two-year programs, six concentrations are available for students to pursue, base on interest:

  • Human Factors/Ergonomics: Where physics, physiology, and psychology combine to improve efficiency and reliability in the workplace. This includes the application of ergonomic engineering in the design of tools, laboratory analysis of human physiology (anthropology), and the use of computer simulations and dynamic analysis to design and analysis of work areas and worker postures.
  • Production Automation: Learn to layout, design, and analyze automated manufacturing systems. Understand the role of computer controlled production systems and its effect on product design, process design, production, inspection, transportation, production controls and information management systems. Finally, apply this knowledge by evaluating and optimizing the use of automated manufacturing systems in various industries, to suit the needs and economic realities of the real world.
  • Manufacturing and System Planning: Using mathematical theory and simulation modeling techniques, analyze, verify, validate and improve the output efficiency of various manufacturing systems. In addition, broaden use of system simulation techniques so it can be used as a tool that can assist management in corporate planning.
  • Quality and Reliability Engineering: Topics covered include total quality control, statistical production management, international quality standards, experimental design, quality control engineering, quality vs. cost, reliability engineering, and computer visualization techniques. Analyze and solve various problems caused by management and production quality control.
  • Information systems: The theory and application of technologies that collect, organize, and analyze information from various systems, such as information database systems, expert systems, and decision making algorithms. Technologies that can aid companies make effective decisions, raise output, and improve efficiency.
  • Operations Management: Operation management deals with various operational challenges faced by companies such as growth and competition by applying industrial management theory to solve problems.
