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.

The summary and discussion meeting
The institute and its associated labs and research centers were Gang Zhang’s first stop. Then he listened to Prof. Li Zheng and Lefei Li’s work summary of the Institute for the last year, including future work plan and outlook of the Institute for the next years. Other professors provided additional information. Counselor Zhang highly appraised the Institute’s breakthroughs in key R&D programs such as national quality infrastructure (NQI) projects and the good collaboration with backbone industries like high-speed railways and nuclear power plants in quality and reliability issues. He congratulated on the diversified distribution and rapid progress of the sub-organizations under the Institute, including the Research Center for Human Factors in Complex Systems , Product Quality and Equipment Maintenance Lab, Reliability and Risk Management Lab, Future Complex Systems Engineering Lab and Service Quality and Innovation Lab.
With accompany by Vice President Qikun Xue, Counselor Zhang visited the Digital Capability Center and continued the discussion. During the discussion, the officers from AQSIQ’s Science and Technology Department and Standardization Administration offered suggestions on the Institute’s support to the implementation of NQI and the acceleration of standardization for key industries, as well as the subsequent communication and cooperation between the Institute and the related government agencies.
Counselor Zhang commented that the report of the 19th CPC National Congress calls for “better quality, higher efficiency” and “building China’s strength in product quality”. To implement the development philosophy in the new era more effectively and build a modernized economic system, the Institute should follow the national key development strategies. Its current and future research work and directions are of great significance and have vigorously fostered the research and application of quality and reliability theories. The Institute has made some remarkable progress in research projects, faculties, discipline construction, international exchanges, and improvement of working conditions. The cooperation between AQSIQ and Tsinghua University in the past years has been going on in the right direction and have obtained good results. AQSIQ will continue to provide support for the Institute.
Vice President Qikun Xue said at the meeting that the Institute attributed its rapid development to the vigorous support from AQSIQ, and will play a more important role in the strategy of prospering the nation with quality through the subsequent research work and talent cultivation, so that the competent and qualified talents are provided for the country.
