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】Reliability Analysis and Maintenance Policy for Complex Systems

With the advances in emerging technologies, systems are becoming increasingly complex, which brings enormous challenges for reliability engineering. On the other hand, due to the lack of information for complex systems, how to appropriately implement maintenance policies remains an open issue. In this talk, we report our recent progress in reliability analysis and maintenance policy for complex systems. In particular, we investigate the maintenance strategies for different types of complex systems: multi-component systems, systems with multi-dimensional degradation processes and load-sharing systems. (I) we develop a maintenance policy for multi-component systems with hidden failures. Optimal individual inspection intervals are achieved by minimizing the maintenance cost. Due to the dependence among components, an exact optimal solution is difficult to obtain. A heuristic method named “base interval approach” is employed to reduce the computational complexity. (II) We propose maintenance policy for systems with multi-dimensional degradation processes. We consider a realistic factor of imperfect inspection, where a failure is detected with certain probability. The results imply that accuracy of the inspection techniques contributes significantly to the operating cost and it is suggested that more effort should be paid to improve the inspection accuracy (III) We presents certain new approaches to reliability modeling of systems subject to shared loads. Reliability assessment of such systems is often complicated by the fact that both the arriving load and the failure of components influence the degradation of the surviving components in a complex manner. The proposed approaches seek to ease this problem by first deriving the time to prior failures and the arrival of random loads and then determining the number of failed components.
Bin Liu received his B.S. degree in Automation from Zhejiang University, China. He is currently completing a Ph.D. in the Department of Systems Engineering & Engineering Management, City University of Hong Kong. His research interests include reliability and maintenance modeling, importance measures with application to complex systems, and data analysis. His papers have appeared in European Journal of Operational Research, IIE Transactions, Reliability Engineering & System Safety, Computers & Industrial Engineering, among others.
