University Course Catalog Description An overview of the issues important to the operation of an industrial or service facility. II. Course Overview Industrial Engineers (IEs) design, develop, install and improve integrated systems of people, equipment, information, financial resources, software, materials, and energy. IEs work in a variety of manufacturing, healthcare, utility, retail, government and research settings; therefore, the tools and methods of the industrial engineer are both varied and broad. They use knowledge and skills in engineering, mathematics, and physical and social sciences along with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to monitor and improve such systems. While manufacturing, for many years, has been the setting for Industrial Engineers due to its historical grounding, the need to improve the productivity and quality of our growing service sector has substantially broadened the applicability of Industrial Engineering practices. The primary purpose of this course is to provide students with an introduction to the fundamentals of Industrial Engineering and the Industrial Engineering profession. During this course, students will develop the skill to recognize Industrial Engineering problems ( i.e. , opportunities), and understand the types of technical and professional skills that are needed to address these problems that they will need to develop during the course of their study. The course will also introduce the student to the UCF IEMS Department and include an overview of some of the engineering and contemporary topics used in Industrial Engineering such as methods engineering and human factors, facilities planning and design, operations planning and control, Total Quality Management and Systems Thinking. In addition, students will receive instruction to help develop their professional skills in communication, professionalism and ethical behavior, and working in teams. III. Course Learning Objectives Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Know the NSPE Code of Ethics and apply the Code of Ethics to ethical dilemmas 2. Identify and Industrial Engineering problems 3. Apply Industrial Engineering problem-solving techniques to problems 4. Know the various areas in which Industrial Engineers work IV. Course Prerequisites None.
