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.
Admissions to the International Program of Master of Engineering Management (iMEM)
On October 29th, our students from the Global Manufacturing Master Program and Tsinghua-Aachen Joint Master of Science Program visited the Beijing-Hyundai Motor.
The industry tour started with a welcome opening from the tour leader from Beijing-Hyundai Motor, where the background of the company was briefly introduced. Beijing-Hyundai Motor presented an appealing video of their company profile as a starter to give the students a broad picture of the company. After the video session, the tour guide started to introduce more about the company, and gave a detailed explanation of Beijing-Hyundai Motor’s strategy on covering the Chinese vehicle market with a range of products carefully designed for Chinese customers. In the following Q&A session, students shew interests in knowing more about the business side of Beijing-Hyundai Motor and therefore posed questions about topics such as the sales and growth of the company, suppliers, the distribution of the shares between Beijing and Hyundai, and other questions that cover the curiosity of how Chinese global business strategy works in Beijing-Hyundai Motor.
During the tour of the production floor, the students were able to see how the production line of Beijing-Hyundai Motor was especially designed for a flexible production type. There were a large variety of products in the same line. The tour guide explained in great details why and how the floor was designed in the way it is, and what advantages were with this kind of design. The students could clearly see how a vehicle was assembled from parts and components. The students posed questions regarding the perspective of the production system. The tour guide explained the production rate, bottlenecks, and the Kanban system that they used.
After floor tour, the students visited the testing line for the completed vehicles and were told about the defect rate and actions taken to the vehicles that fail to pass the testing section.
