The Industrial Engineering Division (IED) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) seeks papers for presentation at the 2019 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in Tampa, FL June 15-19, 2019.
Greetings and thank you for your interest in the Industrial Engineering Division (IED) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). As Industrial Engineering (IE) educators we have an important role in the shaping of the future. The following words are taken from the Industrial Engineering Honor Society, Alpha Pi Mu, initiation ceremony: Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials and equipment. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems. This broad statement must be interpreted and translated to a curriculum and series of courses that will enable our students to be successful. We have the responsibility to teach the next generation of IE’s in a meaningful and interesting fashion. Yet, we have the difficulty of understanding this new generation of people and technology. Thus, it’s more important than ever to get involved in ASEE and the IE Division (IED)
Chair’s Message (continued)
We encourage all of you to consider participating in ASEE 2018 in Salt Lake City, UT from June 24 - 27. Bring your ideas, papers, presentations and positive attitude to the conference in order to share ideas with other professionals with similar interests. Have you had experience with teaching IE courses? What curriculum changes have you considered? When was your last ABET visit? Are you currently preparing for the next ABET visit? What student-related issues have you encountered? What are the new research areas that you have brought to the classroom? Are you an IIE member? Did you participate in the IIE conference? Please share your successes and failures so that we can learn and grow together.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions!
