Courses

IET 2227 Introduction to Statistics
Prerequisite: MATH 1113 Precalculus
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

As a study of descriptive and inferential statistics and applied probability, the course includes measures of central tendency and variability, statistical sampling and estimation, probability distributions, introduction to hypothesis testing and non-parametric statistics. Industrial applications rather than theoretical developments are emphasized. Computer based solution techniques are used when appropriate. This is the first of a two-course sequence.


IET 2305 The Role of Industrial Engineering Technology in Industrial Systems
Prerequisite: none
3 Class Hours 2 Laboratory Hours 4 Credit Hours

An introduction to industrial systems and processes, including a look at the basic production processes from the viewpoint of systems and design. The role and responsibilities of a graduate will be explored as well as the principles related to human, quality, organizational, legal and ethical aspects of professional practice. The design and operation of production processes are studied as they relate to the areas in manufacturing, distribution and service industries.


IET 2449 - Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Prerequisite: none
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This course offers an analysis of decision making in the current logistics environment and the tools needed for finding solutions to problems relating to purchasing, inventory, transportation, and warehouse management.


IET 3320 Advanced Logistics
Prerequisite: IET 2449 Logistics & Supply Chain Management
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This course will expand on the topics covered in IET 2449, leading students to a deeper understanding of logistics and supply chain systems. Special emphasis will be given to current trends in the field such as global logistics, reverse logistics, nontraditional supply chains and risk assessment/disaster recovery. Each student will also research and write about in more depth a single topic that interest them.


IET 3424 Engineering Economy
Prerequisite: MATH 1113 Precalculus
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

As an introduction to the effect of the time value of money this course will use equivalent annual cost, present worth, internal rates of return, and benefit to cost ratios in making economic analysis. Tax consequences, replacement theory and economic life will be examined in the analysis of engineering problems.


IET 3511 Sustainability Engineering
Prerequisite: none
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This course focuses on the science, engineering and ethics of ecological, social environmental issues and the impact human population has on the current environment and explores new sources of energy, air and water quality, waste treatment, reclamation, conservation efforts and how engineers can partner to meet the challenges.


IET 3620 Warehousing Systems
Prerequisite: none
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

Warehouses and distribution centers are the material sortation and consolidation points of the supply chain. The internal process flow of material, storage strategies, material handling equipment, dynamic algorithms, transportation modes, pick methods, and yard operations will be discussed.


IET 4405 Operations Research: Concepts, Models, and Methods
Prerequisite: IET 2227 Introduction to Statistics
3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This course will introduce quantitative techniques used in the solution of industrial and business operations problems. Topics include linear programming, assignment and transportation techniques, sensitivity analysis, and decision analysis.


IET4451 Systems Simulation
Prerequisite: IET4405 Operations Research: Concepts, Models, and Methods
2 Class Hours 3 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This is an in-depth study of simulation as applied to manufacturing, inventory and distribution systems. Topics will include basic simulation and system modeling techniques, random sampling procedures, production modeling, inventory modeling and system evaluation. Emphasis will be upon hands-on simulation of various operations using ARENA, a PC-based stochastic graphical simulation program.


IET 4475 - Senior Project
Prerequisite: IET4422
1 Class Hours 4 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours

This course focuses on the student completing a project that is a comprehensive application of the subject matter in the IET curriculum. A large-scale feasibility study is to be performed to emphasize the interrelated topics of logistical and production processes for a fictitious company. The course requires a formal written report and a defended oral presentation before industrial and academic experts.
