This course is the capstone industrial engineering course, taken in two separate semesters. The first semester for one credit and the second semester for three credits. The course will require application of several IE design principles to a project. The projects are chosen by students or assigned by faculty. All students are required to present their projects at the Senior Engineering Design Conference hosted by the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisite: department approval
Credits: 1 - 4 hours
IME 4010, 4160 (can be concurrent). Students MUST register in this course in two consecutive semesters. They can only register for the first one credit-hour of the course one year prior to their scheduled graduation dates, and only after all the required prerequisites have been met. Students must register for the next 3 credit hour course, immediately following the semester at which they registered for the first course. Summer sessions are not counted toward this requirement.
This course is taught in two semesters. In the first semester, students are expected to register for one (1) credit hour of IME 4190, and in the second semester, they are expected to register for three (3) credit hours. This course is a required course in the IEE Program and is scheduled for 1+3 lab and class discussion.
