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)
The 471st Doctoral Forum of Tsinghua University, organized by IE Department, was held in Huairou District, Beijing on December 10-11, 2016. Target to PhD students and senior master students majored in industrial engineering in colleges and universities in China, the forum was held annually, aiming to enhance academic exchange among students, strengthen innovative awareness and abilities, and improve research and education level of the field. One hundred and fifty students and young scholars from 12 universities, including Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Zhejiang University and Sun Yat-sen University and others, attended the Conference.
Industrial Engineering Doctoral Forum Held in 2016
Prof. Max Zuojun Shen, Head of the IE Department, delivered an opening speech at the forum. Prof. Shen reviewed the history of the Doctoral Forum, and encouraged students take the opportunity to learn research methodologies and methods from other talks. He also suggested that students should do research from real problems and make their outcomes more useful to the society.
Prof. Shen delivered a speech at the opening ceremony
Students at the forum
The forum has both plenary and parallel sessions. In the plenary session, Professors Yanfu Li and Fang He from the IE Department presented their research achievement and future directions. In 13 parallel sessions, reports on supply chain management, manufacturing and production, human factors and human-computer interaction, reliability and health care were presented. The speakers shared their research outcomes and interact with the audience.
Speakers in parallel sessions
Faculty members of the IE Department also held a teaching and researching session to discuss cultivation issues related to PhD candidates, such as the employment orientation and design of curriculum system, after listening to the suggestions of the students.
Faculty discussion session
The forum also had a paper competition. Six papers from 79 submissions were selected to enter the finalist, and three PhD students, Rui Chen, Yinghao Jia and Hao Wang, finally won the Outstanding Paper Award. Their research covers subjects of operations, decision-making, and health care.
Winners of Outstanding Paper Award
At the forum, a new story-sharing session was organized. Prof. Xiaobo Zhao and four outstanding senior PhD candidates shared their stories about research and daily life.
Outstanding PhD candidates shared their academic stories
In conclusion, students commented that the forum enhanced their research enthusiasm, and improved their knowledge and understanding of research topics from diverse IE area.
