Hands-on Application

Faculty-mentored research plays a strong role in the hands-on experience of industrial engineering master’s degree students. One current project is supported by HID Global and involves students’ improving the flow and organization of a production facility using lean and operations research principles and models. Other challenges sponsored by local industry include studies of machining cells, production line layouts, and work and assembly methods.
