The mission of the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is to provide for students a solid industrial engineering curriculum coupled with a strong research program driven by the economic and technological development needs of society.
The Industrial Engineering degree provides a broad technical background with special emphasis on manufacturing systems, computer modeling, costs, quality, management, and human factors. Industrial engineering draws upon specialized knowledge and skills in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of engineering design and analysis, to specify, predict, and evaluate industrial systems.
The program of study includes engineering analysis for the optimization of industrial systems, design of man-machine systems, and the scientific management of activities. Specialized training is available in the use of modern engineering tools and techniques such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer integrated manufacturing (CIM), and ergonomic (human factors) engineering.
Industrial engineers pursue careers in manufacturing, service industries, and government. In addition, many industrial engineers are now being employed in nontraditional fields such as hospitals, banks, insurance, and information processing. The present and future demand for IE's appears to be very high. Industrial engineers are increasingly being called upon to act as productivity catalysts in manufacturing and service organizations in order to meet regional, national, and international demand and competition.
Program Educational Objectives
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) curriculum is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD, 21202-4012, phone (410) 347-7700. The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) curriculum is designed to comply with the ABET criteria for accrediting engineering programs. The educational objectives are that, within the first few years following their graduation, graduates should have:
- Been employed in industrial, service, or governmental organizations applying the industrial engineering skills in developing, designing, analyzing, implementing, or improving integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy
- Completed or enrolled in a graduate program
- Participated in a multicultural and diverse workplace
- Utilized teamwork, communication, and engineering management skills.
To achieve these objectives, all industrial engineering students must demonstrate or exhibit specific program outcomes. Students are instructed to contact their academic advisor or visit the departmental Website at http://www.eng.famu.fsu.edu/ime/ to obtain the current list of industrial engineering program outcomes.
Computer Skills Competency
All undergraduates at Florida State University must demonstrate basic computer skills competency prior to graduation. As necessary computer competency skills vary from discipline to discipline, each major determines the courses needed to satisfy this requirement. Undergraduate majors in industrial engineering satisfy this requirement by earning a grade of "C–" or higher in COP 3014 (preferred) or CGS 3406.
