           ABET: Advisory Council
You are being asked to serve on our IE
Undergraduate Advisory Council to offer your
perspective as we work to improve our
program.
You are stakeholders in our program, and we
seek your advice on our educational objectives
and other issues which frame our program.
           Today’s Objectives
• Educate you on ABET and WSU IME
• Your perspective on current trends in IE
  with implications for education
• Discuss deficiencies you see in entry-
  level industrial engineers
• Your high-level input on our overall
  Program Educational Objectives
               ABET
“ABET, Inc., the recognized accreditor
for college and university programs in
applied science, computing,
engineering, and technology, is a
federation of 28 professional and
technical societies representing these
fields.” www.abet.org
           ABET Process
“Each program … conducts an internal
evaluation and completes a self-study
questionnaire. The self-study
documents whether students,
curriculum, faculty, administration,
facilities, and institutional support meet
the established criteria.”
        ABET: Program Educational Objectives
“Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that
describe the career and professional accomplishments that the
program is preparing graduates to achieve.” (www.abet.org)

1. Objectives are consistent with the mission of the institution
   and ABET criteria
2. A process based on the needs of the program's various
   constituencies in which the objectives are determined and
   periodically evaluated
3. An educational program, including a curriculum that
   prepares students to attain program outcomes and that fosters
   accomplishments of graduates that are consistent with these
   objectives
4. A process of ongoing evaluation of the extent to which
   these objectives are attained, the result of which shall be used
   to develop and improve the program outcomes so that
   graduates are better prepared to attain the objectives.”
           ABET: Concerns 2000

1. Program Enrollment below Sustainable
   Level.
2. Undergraduates and Graduates Share
   Instruction in Core Courses
           Addressing Low Enrollment
Action:
•   Outreach to community colleges
      •   Regular contact with advisors
      •   Specific transfer protocols for each college
      •   Special events
•   Recruitment & marketing materials (See included packet)
•   Contact management
•   Departmental scholarships for outstanding students
•   Launched new website. http://mie.eng.wayne.edu/undergrad.
•   Launched specialized programs e.g. PMLP
Result:
IE enrollments doubled+ from 2002 (38) to 2005 (78).
AY 01-02: 5 graduates  AY 04-05: 12 graduates
              Addressing Cross-Listing
Action:
•   Winter 2004  offered Production Control
    separately.
•   Spring/summer 2004  separated Simulation
Result
•   by Winter 2005: all core courses taught as
    exclusively undergraduate sections.
•   converted all undergraduate courses to 3 credits
          •    free up 13 credits to design specializations.
•   Instituted first specialization: PMLP Production
    Management Leadership Program.

      The Capstone project targets a real world problem defined in collaboration with
      partners from either a manufacturing or service-sector company. The capstone
      project team acts as a consulting group and works with the industry partner and
      the faculty advisory team to define the scope and deliverables of the project


All design teams are required to submit a final written report and to present their design
in an open forum. Both the written and oral report will be evaluated for:
  •     Technical performance
  •     Professional behavior
All design teams are required to submit a final written report and to present their design
in an open forum. Both the written and oral report are evaluated for:
  •     Technical performance
  •     Professional behavior
