Outcomes for fall 2009 to winter 2010

ABET defines Program Outcomes as "statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.

The IE faculty voted to update the IE Program Outcomes on Jan. 26, 2010.

Upon completion of the Industrial Engineering Program, our graduates will exhibit skills necessary of all engineering professionals, including:

Required of all Engineering programs

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. 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.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An ability to understand professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

Specific to our industrial engineering program

(ie-1) An ability to design, develop, implement, and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy.

(ie-2) An ability to integrate systems using appropriate analytical, computational, and experimental practices.

(ie-3) An ability to quantify the uncertainties involved in engineering systems and apply the tools of probability and statistics in analysis and design.
