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.

[Time] 14:00 – 15:30, December 19 (Thursday)[Venue] Room 412, Shunde building[Speaker] Dr. Jingshan Li[Host] Dr. Yanfu Li[Title] Smart Manufacturing and Healthcare Systems: Problems, Opportunities, and Challenges[Abstract]Both
manufacturing and healthcare delivery systems have significant
importance to economy and society. In addition to widespread attention
in smart manufacturing systems, referred to as Industry 4.0, there have
been growing interests in smart healthcare systems, where we introduce
the notion of Healthcare 4.0. In this talk, we will present the lessons
we learned and results we obtained in manufacturing and healthcare
systems study. We will address the evolution of Industry 4.0 and
Healthcare 4.0, discuss the similarities and differences between
production systems and healthcare delivery systems. Next, a brief
description of recent studies carried out at the Production and Service
Systems Lab in University of Wisconsin-Madison will be presented.
Particularly, projects of transient analysis in time constrained battery
manufacturing systems and queueing network models of complex patient
transitions in large hospitals will be introduced. Finally, we plan to
discuss the potential opportunities, challenges and future directions in
smart manufacturing and healthcare systems research.[Bio]Dr.
