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 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.

【Title】The Interplay between Statistical Practice and Academic Research
【Speaker】William A. Brenneman, Research Fellow, Quantitative Sciences, Procter & Gamble Company
【Host】Dr. Kaibo Wang
【Time】February 22, 2017, 10:30–11:30
【Location】Room N512, Shunde Building
【Abstract】There has always been a connection between academics and industry in that most industrial statisticians go through formal statistical training at the undergraduate or graduate level prior to practicing statistics. In the statistics field, there is a strong symbiotic relationship between academics and industry and I will discuss that relationship primarily from the perspective of one who has taken the traditional route, academics to industry, and discuss the lessons learned on how to foster, grow and bridge the gap between statistical practice and academic research. Several problems encountered at P&G that led to academic research projects will be highlighted.
【Brief bio】Dr. William Brenneman is a Research Fellow at Procter & Gamble in the Quantitative Sciences Department and an Adjunct Professor at Georgia Tech in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department. Since joining P&G in 2000, he has worked on a wide range of projects that deal with statistics applications in his areas of expertise: design and analysis of experiments, robust parameter design, reliability engineering, statistical process control, computer experiments, data science and general statistical thinking. He was also instrumental in the development of an in-house statistics curriculum.
He received a Ph.D. degree in Statistics from the University of Michigan, an MS in Mathematics from the University of Iowa and a BA in Mathematics and Secondary Education from Tabor College. William is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA), a Fellow of the American Society for Quality (ASQ), and a member of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences. He has served as ASQ Statistics Division Chair and is currently the Past-Chair for the Quality and Productivity Section of ASA and an Associate Editor of Technometrics. William also has seven years of experience as an educator at the high school and college level.
