The department has one associate chair as the department-level student advisory board director. The board has an undergraduate branch and a graduate branch. Each branch is formed by class advisors, class assistants, student union, Youth League, and Science/Technology Association.
The IE department has eight undergraduate classes (each grade has two classes of about 70 students). Also we have two faculty members as the advisors for the freshmen, two for the sophomores, one for the juniors, and o
The students are required to participate in extracurricular activities in order to prepare themselves with not only knowledge in IE, but also Teamwork and interpersonal skills, Leadership, and Social responsibilities.

The Bachelor program requires 173 credits, consisting of 136 credits in spring/fall semesters, 4 credits in senior projects, 18 credits in summer practice and military training, and 15 credits of a final thesis. The courses are classified into five categories: Humanities and Social Sciences, core engineering courses, core Industrial Engineering courses, summer practice and internship, and a thesis component.
International programs have been initiated since 2001 including the Tsinghua-Aachen joint master program and Tsinghua-Gatech exchange program. And a two-year, professional-orientated Master's program in Management Science and Engineering (Global Manufacturing) was founded in 2009 for students with a global vision in management science and engineering, with special focus on the manufacturing industry in China.
The doctoral degree program usually lasts 3 to 5 years. Students with Master's degree usually spend 3 to 4 years. The program has 22 credits consisting of 13 credits of core courses, and 5 credits of research requirements. Students without an IE related Master's degree shall take prerequisite courses suggested by the advisor.
Admissions to the International Program of Master of Engineering Management (iMEM)
Dr. Hong-Xuan HUANG was born in a countryside in Henan Province, China. Usually, he thinks that he is still a countryman except for living in Beijing and not knowing how to plant corns.
Dr. Hong-Xuan received dual Bachelor degrees of Applied Mathematics and Automatic Control from Tsinghua University in 1990. Two years later, He received a Master degree of Computational Mathematics from the same university. In 1994, He obtained an opportunity to pursue his Philosophy degree of Management Engineering from School of Management, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA). He thinks that he was lucky for receiving a Ph. D. from BUAA before he was 30 years old.
Since August in 1992, he had been working in the department of Mathematical Sciences, Tsinghua University, even though he pursued his Ph. D. during the years from 1994 to 1997. He was also lucky for meeting many friends in the city of Gainesville, which is located in Florida state of USA, while he visited the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and Center for Applied Optimization (CAO) in University of Florida from August, 2000 to August, 2001.
He moved to the department of Industrial Engineering (IE) from the department of mathematical sciences, Tsinghua University, in December 2004. During the past years, He is glad to have opportunities to serve for most of graduates in Graduate School of Tsinghua University from December, 2011, to July, 2015, and visit the department of Statistics in University of Wisconsin-Madison from February, 2016 to February, 2017.
