Bachelor of Science in
INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING

Program Description

Industrial Engineers forge careers that, though admittedly varied, are often concerned with how to drastically reduce or even eliminate our waste of time, money, materials, energy, and other valuable commodities. Industrial Engineers assume positions of consequence in industries such as high tech, manufacturing, entertainment, shipping and logistics, healthcare, project management, transportation, systems modeling, telecommunications, customer service, and even in government.

Program Learning Outcomes

The Industrial Engineering Program objectives and indicators are: 

Objective 1: Technical Proficiency. Graduates integrate mathematics, physics, engineering science, operations research, applied probability and statistics, manufacturing technology, production planning, and computer simulation to model and analyze entire systems that are composed of their individual components, subsystems, and processes.

Objective 2: Professional Growth. Graduates develop and exercise their capabilities for life‐long learning as a means to enhance their technical and social skills.

Objective 3: Management Skills. Graduates develop and refine their management, communications, and professional skills to increase their effectiveness as team members and team leaders.

The following outcomes support the program educational objectives:

(a) ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(c) ability to design system, component, or process to meet needs within realistic constraints

(d) ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

(e) ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f) understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) ability to communicate effectively

(h) broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions

(i) recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) knowledge of contemporary issues

(k) ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

(INE-1) The curriculum must prepare graduates to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy. The curriculum must include in-depth instruction to accomplish the integration of systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and experimental practices.

 

Teaching & Assessment

The method of teaching follows the classroom model in which the primary mode of instruction is a flipped classroom model.  A set of short lectures prepared by AUM lead faculty will be viewed by students and take quizzes on that material prior to attending class.  Students will then attend classes that are led by an on-site AUM co-professor.  The co-professor will then clarify concerns and lead in-class exercises (problems, design projects, instructing on software, discussions, etc).  Often these sessions will be in a collaborative learning environment in which students work in small groups.  

Laboratory modules involve two to three-hour fully on-site laboratory sessions in which students complete assignments involving hands-on laboratory experiments and supplemental data analysis either individually or as part of groups. Laboratories are assessed using written lab reports and/or oral presentations.

Assessments

Engineering disciplines require strong mathematics skills.  Assessments (in-class examinations, homework and individual and team projects) will focus on those skills. In addition, some modules have “group presentation” as a mode of assessment, which will focus on communication and team-working skills. Some modules have “team evaluations” as a mode of assessment, which will focus on team-working and management skills. Some modules with labs embedded in the module require additional measurement modes. The range of assessment tools permit students to excel and demonstrate competence in alternative ways.
