MINOR PROGRAM(S) IN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING

Minor Program in Operational Research

The essential quality of operational research derives from the use of scientific inquiry into complex techno-economical systems, complemented by mathematical modeling which emphasizes both goal-seeking and open-systems aspects. It has found widespread applications in all sectors of the government and the industry. The Operational Research Minor Program aims to provide an understanding of the techniques and methods of operational research as they are used in organizational decision making. It will be of benefit to students who want to develop a more focused and systematic view of work organization and management.

Minor Program in Quality Planning And Control

Quality planning and control comprises the concepts and approach of a new notion of quality that seeks to maximize customer satisfaction. Work in this area is not of interest to industrial engineers only, but also to other engineering disciplines as well as to students in industrial design, management and statistics. The Quality Planning and Control minor program aims to contribute to the training of personnel who can improve and enhance quality in all phases of production such as in planning, research and design, manufacturing, distribution or customer relations.

Minor Program in Production Planning and Control

Production planning and control are of central importance in many domains of engineering activity. These functions are likely to assume even more significance, as focus in production shifts towards creating more value for the customer, and design and manufacturing become integrated. The Production Planning and Control minor program provides the necessary basic concepts in four compulsory courses and then allows more specialization through two electives. It will be useful to students who want to complement their training with an organization-wide understanding of the processes and problems of production.
