10 “ Engineering is the application of math and science to create something of value from our natural resources.”

11 Industrial Engineering & Management Program As engineers design and build more complex systems, the need to oversee and ensure adequate performance of the system becomes more pronounced. IE’s as managers and engineers will have a significant role in understanding performance requirements and improving efficiency of these systems. Industrial engineers work in every type of enterprise – manufacturers of every sort of industrial and consumer product; healthcare, financial, transportation, distribution and other types of service industries; government units and agencies. Most branches of engineering are concerned with designing products, while industrial engineers concentrate on designing, installing, and improving procedures, systems, and processes for effective and efficient operation of any enterprise.

12 Manufacturing Engineering Program Is all about the production of goods – from automobiles, tractors, and airplanes, to electronic and recreational products, sports equipment, toys, to foodstuffs. NDSU is one of only nineteen universities offering this degree MfgE major special interests: –Electronics manufacturing –Process engineering –Production & manufacturing systems engineering

13 IME Department areas of expertise include: Healthcare Management Engineering Production Operations & Management Process and Production Engineering Reliability & Quality Management Computer Simulation & Modeling LEAN Enterprise Management & Implementation Specialized Manufacturing Processes »Electronics »Nano & Micro-manufacturing »Plastics »Composites

14 Department Sponsored Academic Student Organizations Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Alpha Pi Mu

15 Admission requirement Preparation for an IME majors: Two years of high school math Two years of physics and chemistry Admission requirements: 2.5 cumulative GPA 21 ACT or 970 SAT score College preparatory courses (core classes) –4 years of English –3 years of Math (algebra I or higher) –3 years of lab science –3 years of social science

16 Scholarships Awarded in the IME Department 2007 – 11 Scholarships worth $15,000 2008 – 16 Scholarships worth $18,000 2009 – 15 Scholarships worth $20,000

17 Project Management/Capstone Project Management/Capstone provides students with unique senior design experiences and may include students from various engineering programs, business, and facilities management. The course is designed to draw on the skills and knowledge obtained throughout the students’ college careers. Capstone project teams study real-world client problems, develop alternative solutions, and propose implementation strategies. The selected project activities start during the second week of Spring semester. The course concludes with the Capstone presentations and banquet during the last Thursday in April.

18 Helping businesses with projects is intended to be a multidisciplinary course for senior-focused students designed to draw on their college careers. The IME Department has a proven success record in working with regional businesses to study their industrial or manufacturing engineering problems, developing alternative solutions, and proposing implementation strategies. Our research help organizations in areas such as: Manufacturing Retail Healthcare Distribution & Supply chain Packaging equipment Food processing Service
