Curriculum innovation in industrial engineering: Developing a new degree program
In this paper, we report on the development of a new industrial engineering program, framing it as a systems engineering process in the context of higher education curriculum development. The curriculum is described in detail, and innovative characteristics of the program are discussed. The resulting program is flexible, allowing the pursuit of accelerated graduate programs, a second major, various minor options, and study-abroad; relevant, tailored to the needs of industry partners in the vicinity; and practical, providing hands-on education, resulting in employment-ready graduates.
