Abstract :

Several Industrial Engineering (IE) tools and methods can be utilized in Engineering Education. This mainly stems from the fact that IE is about developing and maintaining effective and robust systems that provide high quality products and services. These systems can production or service (for example, an education system or an academic program). This presentation focuses on utilizing three IE tools for engineering programs development, accreditation, and quality assurance: a System Engineering (SE) approach for developing a Master of Systems Engineering (MSE) program, Quality Function Deployment (QFD) for program accreditation, and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) for the program├ó┬?┬?s quality assessment and assurance.
