I E 469 Global Industrial Engineering Experience (1)
This course will teach industrial engineering students how to prepare for a short term, professional exchange in a foreign nation and how Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering education and practice is carried out in a foreign nation. Students will be required to research and report on one or more industries in a designated foreign nation. Their report will focus on the products and/or services produced by these industries, the processes employed, known use of industrial and manufacturing engineers and/or practice, and their domestic and global standing.
Students will travel to a designated university within that nation for the purpose of a one week cultural exchange. The designated university will have an Industrial Engineering, Production Engineering, and/or Manufacturing Engineering program. Information about the international destination and the dates of travel will be provided on the course syllabus each semester.
During this period, students will:
1. tour the department and engineering laboratories to learn about the education and research facilities at their host university
2. attend engineering classes within the host university to learn about the engineering topic matter as well as how foreign engineering classes are conducted
3. give and receive engineering presentations with their host university students
4. tour the local community to learn about their culture
5. tour local manufacturing industries and interact with local Industrial/Manufacturing engineers to learn about the companies as well as how industrial & manufacturing engineering is specifically practiced
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
