A. Background Information
 1. Titles
The Department of Manufacturing Engineering Technologies & Supervision (METS) is seeking to
continue their TAC/ABET accreditation of the following programs:
        Associate of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology
        Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology

 2. Program Modes
The Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) program is offered both day and night to suite both full-
time and part-time students. Courses are currently offered entirely on the Purdue University Calumet
(PUC) campus with some courses (primarily electives) available in distance-learning format.

 3. Actions to Correct Previous Findings
During the 1999 TAC/ABET visit to Purdue University Calumet, the IET evaluator noted two concerns
under the previous conventional (pre-TC2K) criteria. These items were addressed in a 2002 interim
report that was accepted by TAC/ABET, and three more years of accreditation were granted. The
concerns along with the appropriate responses from the 2002 report are listed below along with
comments in parenthesis with additional information since 2002.
   Program Concerns
   1.     The baccalaureate program does not require instruction in any additional mathematics beyond
        Calculus I that is the terminal mathematics course in the associate degree program. Use of
        calculus in the upper-level technical courses is very limited. This was also cited in the previous
        accreditation report. Section I.C.4.c(2). of the conventional ABET criteria states that “In
        baccalaureate programs, particularly, the study of the concepts of calculus must be included in
        the program to ensure that students are professionally literate. Upper-level technical courses
        must include applications of calculus in technical problem solving where appropriate in the
        curriculum.” It is required that the use of calculus be incorporated into upper-level courses in the
        curriculum. This would be especially appropriate in the MET 325, Thermodynamics, and MET
        329, Heat Transfer, courses.

   Response:

   Section I.C.4.c(2) of the conventional ABET criteria requires that the application of calculus must be
   included “where appropriate in the curriculum.” This report suggests that use of calculus is
   especially appropriate in MET 325, Thermodynamics, and MET 329, Heat Transfer. Although some
   usage of calculus was required and presented in MET 329 and was available for the visiting team,
   the department has increased the calculus requirements in the above aforementioned courses.

   Course syllabi showing increased calculus usage in the two courses, starting this semester, are
   attached. At the end of this semester, additional student work showing more calculus usage in the
   two courses will be sent to the team chair for review.



                                                     1
   Furthermore, the issue that the baccalaureate program does not require instruction in any additional
   mathematics beyond Calculus I was discussed both recently and after the previous accreditation
   report with the Industrial Advisory Committee. The committee recommended that a second
   Calculus course should not be a requirement for the Industrial Engineering Technology Curriculum
   at Purdue University Calumet, especially since it is not an ABET requirement for IET programs. As
   all mathematics semester hour requirements are met per ABET conventional criteria Section I.B.2.c
   and all baccalaureate application requirements as sited in Section I.C.4.c(2) are met, no change was
   made to the curriculum toward adding a second Calculus requirement.


   2. Section II.E.3.c.(5). of the ABET Policy and Procedure Manual states that the visiting team
   should examine the number of students enrolled in the program. The program has struggled with
   low and declining enrollments since the last evaluation visit. Since this may affect the future
   viability of the program, it is suggested that efforts be undertaken to increase and sustain a larger
   enrollment.

   Response:

   In an effort to market all programs in the School of Technology, the Dean of the school formed a
   marketing committee in 1998. One outcome of a yearlong effort of that committee is a CD-ROM,
   which will be available in the near future and will be sent to all prospective students. This CD-ROM
   features programs in the School of Technology, including the Industrial Engineering Technology
   program. Furthermore, the department hired a full time advisor in fall of 1999, Mr. Mark Hannon.
   He has a background marketing higher education. Mr. Hannon will advise students for course
   scheduling during registration time as well as help marketing the three technology programs in the
   department during the year. We are hoping that these efforts increase the enrollment.

   In addition, there is no indication that this trend in declining enrollment will continue. For the past
   two years (1998-1999 and 1999-2000 school years) the number of freshman enrolled in the IET
   program has increased at least 28% over the previous 5 years of freshman enrollments. Also, the
   IET program has a history of first year retention statistics that is overwhelmingly positive. The IET
   program historically gains students in their sophomore year. This issue will be monitored and action
   taken by faculty, as well as by the METS department advisor/marketing personnel, to promote the
   overall engineering technology programs as well as recruit on a regular basis from high schools and
   surrounding two year colleges.

   c. Section 2.a above shows the relationships between the IET Program Educational Objectives
      (Criterion 1) and the IET Program Educational Outcomes in a tabular format.
   d. The IET faculty, working with the IET Program Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC),
      developed and refined the IET Program Educational Outcomes between 2001 and 2004. The
      team looked at the expected outcomes from a high level starting with the IET Program mission
      (shown in the IET Program Strategic Plan, Appendix I). From the mission, the Program
      Educational Objectives were developed from the perspective of an employer. Following this, the
      Program Educational Outcomes were developed while insuring compliance with both Criterion 2
      and Criterion 8. The IAC provided valuable input for developing these outcomes since the
      majority of IAC members are alumni that currently hire graduates. The faculty then carefully
      analyzed each course in the curriculum to develop a map of course objectives to Program
      Educational Outcomes. Some changes were required to meet the new Program Educational
      Outcomes. The tables below map the program required courses to the Program Educational
      Outcomes. The BS table shows only the additional courses beyond the AS degree. For ease of
      comparison, tables mapping courses to ABET Criterion 2 outcomes are included as well. Again,
      the BS table shows only the additional courses beyond the AS degree.
   e. Each course has a multi-sheet assessment data file associated with the course. The Objective
      sheet for each course lists each course objective, the supported ABET Criterion 2, the supported
      Program Educational Outcome, the methods used by the instructor to assess each course

                                                  6
objective, and survey data from students illustrating how well they thought each course objective
was met. The Outcome Assessment Sheet surveys the student for how well the course under
consideration meets the IET Program Educational Outcomes. Finally, the Course Update Sheet
provides a place for the instructor to record and monitor improvement efforts. Samples of these
three sheets for IET 378, Principles of Total Quality Management are included on the following
pages. When the evaluation team comes on campus, each course will have one or more
notebooks containing the multi-sheet data assessment file along with the material the instructor
used to assess the course objectives. The evaluators will then be able to easily verify that the
course objective was met and that it supports the Program Educational Outcome as well as the
associated ABET Criterion 2.

Description of Condition Prior to / After Update:
1) This was the first time this course was offered in an on-line format. 2) Comments from students indicated they greatly disliked working on-line in
teams. It appeared that they were not prepared for this aspect of the course. It will be stressed up front next time the course is run. 3) Quiz 2 scores
were relatively low and so I instituted the use of weekly discussion boards as reviews for quizzes. This was well recieved by the students and appears
to help them focus and explore complicated topics.

3. Assessment and Evaluation
a. The Purdue University Calumet IET Program continuous improvement plan consists of five related
   documents.
   I. The METS Department Strategic Plan (see Appendix 2 or visit
      http://www.calumet.purdue.edu/mets/mission.html#dept_sp )
       The METS Department Strategic Plan outlines the department‟s vision, mission, constituencies,
       and goals with assessment methods. This plan encompasses the four programs in the
       department: Computer Graphics Technology, Industrial Engineering Technology, Mechanical
       Engineering Technology, and Organizational Leadership & Supervision. The department goals
       are aligned with those of the School of Technology.
   II. The IET Program Strategic Plan (see Appendix 1 or visit
       http://technology.calumet.purdue.edu/met/IETprogramStrategicPlan/index.html )
       The IET Program Strategic Plan outlines the program constituencies, vision, mission, Program
       Educational Objectives with metrics and assessment methods, and Program Educational
       Outcomes with ABET related criterion and assessment methods. The plan also gives some
       background information along with an explanation of how the plan is used for continuous
       improvement activities. The IET Program objectives are aligned with the department goals.
       This document, along with the METS Department Assessment Tools, identifies who is
       responsible for major elements in the process, and the timing and frequency of the activities.
  III. The METS Department Continuous Improvement Plan (see Appendix 3 or visit
       http://www.calumet.purdue.edu/mets/mission.html#dept_cip )
       The METS Department has developed a short, simple continuous improvement plan that is easy
       to understand and follow. It contains data collection, data analysis, and change implementation
       phases that occur in an on-going cycle which is shown in the assessment calendar. Minutes
       from all meetings and retreats are kept on the department‟s web site for easy access and
       archival purposes. The continuous improvement plan contains the processes used to establish
       and review the program objectives and outcomes, to evaluate assessment data, and to decide
       changes necessary for program improvement.
  IV. The METS Department Assessment Tools (see Appendix 4 or visit
      http://www.calumet.purdue.edu/mets/mission.html#dept_at )
       The METS Department has developed ten tools to assess the department as a whole and each
       program within the department. These tools include the rationale and responsible party. The
       evaluated results of these tools are reported in the department‟s Annual Assessment Report that
       is required by Purdue University Calumet.
   V. The METS Department Annual Assessment Report (see Appendix 5 or visit
      http://technology.calumet.purdue.edu/met/METSassessmentreport/index.html )
       The METS Department Annual Assessment Report summarizes the department‟s activities in
       many areas with several areas related to program assessment. Several years worth of data are
       available on the web site. The most recent is shown in Appendix 5.

b. The continuous improvement efforts in the METS Department have been implemented and
   regularly improved since 2002. Since then, significant improvements have been made as a result of
   the assessment techniques now in place both at the course level and at the program level.


Examples of course improvements include:
      IET 378, Principles of Total Quality Management- This course has been taught as a traditional
      lecture course. Over the past five years various alternative teaching formats have been
      introduced such as condensed weekend courses, which feedback showed did not benefit students
      and this format was discontinued. An on-line format was introduced in 2003 which has proved
      to benefit students well. On-line feedback initially indicated that students wanted the teamwork
      portion of the course discontinued. The feedback indicated that the students were unprepared for
      this expectation in an on-line course. Slight modifications to preparing students for this aspect of
      on-line work improved the “attitude” of students toward this component and, whereas it did not
      fix the dislike of the team work component on-line, the feedback has become constructive and
      now additional improvements are to be made regarding further preparation and changes in time
      allocation for this aspect of the course.

      CGT 110 – Technical Graphics Communication – results from later courses showed that students
      leaving CGT110 lacked skill in creating multi-view drawings. The course content and syllabus
      was changed to include more sketching and multi-view drawing creation at the beginning of the
      course, and then these concepts are reinforced with CAD tools later in the course. Initial
      assessments indicate much better understanding of multi-view drawing has resulted.

      MET 242, Manufacturing Processes II – in an effort to maintain consistency, the course
      objectives originally came from the West Lafayette campus. However, many of these objectives
      proved un-measurable. Efforts were then taken to carefully analyze the course and create clear
      course objectives which helped focus course material.

      MET 325, Applied Thermodynamics – the course assessment system indicated a problem with
      the order the material was presented. A simple change in order resulted in improved student
      learning for a test semester. Later semesters confirmed this result.

      IET 355, Statistical Process Control - The course emphasizes the evaluation, analysis and
      installation of various procedures that comprise total quality control. The feedback from students
      overwhelmingly stated the importance of hands-on exercises to understand the difficult statistical
      concepts. The instructor developed and introduced the following exercises over a two year
      period.

         a. Introduced the „funnel experiment‟ to understand the variation and associated concepts
         b. Introduced the „bead experiment‟ to understand the concept of flaws in the process that
            are beyond operator control
         c. Introduced the „marble experiment‟ to analyze various statistical distributions such as the
            binomial and exponential
         d. Introduced the design of experiments with a requirement to actually develop a design
            A new „catapult‟ experiment will be introduced in the fall of 2005


                                                  16
        e. A senior project was chartered to design and fabricate a process that could be used to
           develop a process control chart using different types and grains of rice in a filler
           mechanism. This will be introduced in the fall of 2005
        f. Another senior project developed an automated gage R&R study that will be introduced
           in the fall of 2005


Examples of program improvement include:
       - The IAC agreed after some discussion that the IET 378-TQM course would be the best fit
            for our AS degree in achieving the objective that is required by ABET to have an
            integrating experience or capstone course for each degree and so was instituted as a
            required course in the 4th semester rather than an open IET elective.

        -   Specializations in quality and manufacturing were structured into the program at the
            suggestion of the IAC so that students could better identify types of jobs available to
            industrial engineering technology students. It was hoped that this identification will also
            help with increasing enrollment and giving the program a greater concentration and
            focus.

        -   The IAC agreed that we should give options for our science lab course in the AS degree
            because the currently required CHEM 111 is not necessarily the best fit and has limited
            offering. Additional courses students will be able to choose from should be CHEM 115
            (which is offered on a regular basis) and BIOL 125 (which would support human topics
            such as ergonomics that come up in the IET curriculum)

        -   The IAC agreed that the TQM course should have a prerequisite of statistics, either BHS
            201 (which OLS students are required to take) or STAT 301 (which ET students are
            required to take).

        -   The IAC agreed that ECON 251 is no longer needed. All related topics are covered in
            Eng Econ, in IET 308. A more qualified course to require is OLS 350 – creativity.

        -   The IAC agreed that having the option of COM 415 or OLS 474 is not needed. Several
            of the IAC members who are also alumni had taken both courses and recommended that
            it is the same content, but OLS 474 is the more relevant course, so remove COM 415 as
            an option (it also has limited offerings).

        -   One student complained about the cost of taking the Certified Manufacturing
            Technologist exam and wanted to take the CQE test instead. Much discussion was
            initiated by the IAC regarding this issue. As a future topic, the committee will compare
            the CMgT test to the CQE and APEX tests, possibly based on the student‟s area of
            concentration. The IAC strongly advised us not to drop it, but rather find a way to fund it
            if necessary; “it is a great qualification.”




                                                 17
-   The IAC suggested a curriculum change to add the requirement of a „C‟ or better in IET
    major courses as a graduation requirement. This was added to the IET graduation
    requirements.

-   It has been confirmed that the newly required course POL 305 – Technology and Society,
    focuses on the topic of global diversification (among other topics). The Industrial
    Advisory Committee suggested during our April 2003 meeting that this topic be added
    somewhere in the IET curriculum because it is becoming more and more important as
    companies become global. This is a good example of the IAC reiterating an issue already
    identified by ABET as a topic students should be familiar with upon graduation.

-  IET 308, Engineering Project Management and Economic Analysis - This course
   replaced the Production Cost Analysis (IET 450) course at the request of the Industrial
   Advisory Committee (IAC). IAC felt that the graduates lacked the project experience in
   multi disciplinary environments which was needed to successfully complete projects. In
   the summer of 2003 the new course was run on an experimental basis. The new course
   had the project management and the economic component intertwined. The following
   improvements were made since the summer of 2003:
a. An undergraduate research study was completed to develop a project case study that
   could be used in the course
b. At least four project reports are required by interdisciplinary groups on various topics;
   economic analysis, risk analysis, scheduling, budget and resource planning

- IET 495 was changed from individual study to meeting weekly at a set time to work on
    preparation for the CMfgT exam, ethics, and job search skills as well as picking a project.
    Pass rates on the CMfgT exam have gone up as a result.

   Hence, various forms of communication are required at all levels of technical work.
utilize the appropriate technical literature and use it as a principal means of staying current in
     their chosen technology, and
           IET 106 – Principles of Ergonomics – Begins the process of acclimating freshman
                 to public speaking by requiring short informal weekly presentations of
                 technical material to the class. One source for this technical material is
                 current technical literature.
           MET242, IET495, and IET497 are the principal courses where students learn how
                to use technical literature.
           IET 355, Statistical Process Control – Students are required to use technical
                 literature to do a research assignment which requires students to identify a
                 current case study on a quality associated legal matter.

                                         22
              IET 378 – Principles of Total Quality Management – Requires students to
                    complete a research project which is expected to site current technical
                    literature.
   utilize the interpersonal skills required to work effectively in teams.

       Teamwork is required in IET 264, IET 308, MET141, MET242, IET204, IET310, and
       IET378.
Mathematics The level and focus of the mathematics content must provide students with the
skills to solve technical problems appropriate to the discipline and the program objectives.
Algebra, trigonometry, and an introduction to mathematics above the level of algebra and
trigonometry constitute the foundation mathematics for an associate degree program. Integral
and differential calculus, or other appropriate mathematics above the level of algebra and
trigonometry, constitutes the foundation mathematics for baccalaureate programs.

       The AS IET Program and the BS IET program use technical math courses specifically
       geared towards engineering technology programs. The courses required are:
              MA 147, Algebra & trigonometry for Technology I
              MA 148, Algebra & trigonometry for Technology II
              MA 221, Calculus for Technology I
              STAT 301, Elementary Statistical Methods I
Physical and Natural Science The basic science content can include physics, chemistry, or life
and earth sciences that support program objectives. This component must include laboratory
experiences which develop expertise in experimentation, observation, measurement and
documentation.

       The AS IET Program requires one physics courses (lab based) to provide the scientific
       background necessary for the technical courses and then the student has the option of a
       chemistry or biology course (all lab based). The courses required are:
              PHYS 220, General Physics I (mechanics, heat, and sound)
              CHEM 111, General Chemistry
                or
              BIOL 125, Introduction to Human Biology
       The BS IET Program requires the previously listed courses along with the following lab-
       based physics course:
              PHYS 221, General Physics II, (electricity and light)




                                            23
 Social Sciences and Humanities The social sciences and humanities content must support
technical education by broadening student perspective and imparting an understanding of
diversity and the global and societal impacts of technology.
       The AS program requires POL305, Technology and Society. The BS program requires
       that course along with one course from social sciences and one from humanities of the
       students‟ choosing.
Technical Content The technical content of a program must focus on the applied aspects of
science and engineering in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product
improvement, manufacturing, construction and engineering operational functions. The technical
content must develop the skills, knowledge, methods, procedures, and techniques associated with
the technical discipline and appropriate to the goals of the program.

The technical content develops the depth of technical specialty and must represent at least 1/3 of
the total credit hours for the program. In order to accommodate the essential mathematics,
sciences, communications, and humanities components, the technical content is limited to no
more than 2/3 the total credit hours for the program.

       The AS IET Program has 33 technical credit hours out of 65 required hours, so it satisfies
       the 1/3-2/3 of the total credit hours requirement. The BS IET Program has 76 technical
       credit hours out of 127 required hours, so it satisfies the 1/3-2/3 of the total credit hours
       requirement. The courses considered as technical content for the AS and BS degrees are
       identified in tables 1a and 1b listed above.




                                            24
a) The technical content of the curriculum consists of a technical core and the
   increasingly complex technical specialties found later in the curriculum. The
   technical core must provide the prerequisite foundation of knowledge necessary for
   the technical specialties.
The AS IET Program has seven technical courses that can be considered as basic core
courses with four technical courses that build on the topics presented in these basic
courses as well as other math and science courses.

The BS IET Program has been designed so that students will extend the basic knowledge
gained during the AS program. In addition to nine higher level specialty courses that all
IET BS degrees require, the BS program allows for six selective courses that will result in
the student attaining a degree with a specialization in quality, a specialization in
manufacturing or simply a general broad knowledge of higher level IET concepts
depending on the student‟s selection of the six open selective courses.

b) Laboratory activities must develop student competence in the use of analytical and
   measurement equipment common to the discipline and appropriate to the goals of the
   program.
The AS IET Program has six technical courses that include a laboratory component while
the BS IET Program has ten. The following table lists the courses and the analytical and
measuring equipment used. The double line delineates AS and BS courses.

c) Technical courses must develop student knowledge and competence in the use of
   standard design practices, tools, techniques, and computer hardware and software
   appropriate to the discipline and goals of the program.
The AS IET Program has been designed to provide students with the skills necessary to
succeed in entry-level engineering technology jobs. This is the goal of Program
Educational Objective 1 as shown in the IET Program Strategic Plan. Support for that
objective is listed in the plan and with the supporting courses shown in Criterion 2.

                                    29
           The BS IET Program has been designed to provide students with the skills necessary to
           succeed in more advanced industrial engineering technology jobs. This is the goal of
           Program Educational Objective 4 as shown in the IET Program Strategic Plan. Support
           for that objective is listed in the plan and with the supporting courses shown in Criterion
           2.

           Improvement/Assessment page which has links to the IET Program Strategic Plan with
           published objectives and outcomes. You may have to use your browser‟s BACK button
           several times to return here.
           d) Capstone or other integrating experiences must draw together diverse elements of the
              curriculum and develop student competence in focusing both technical and non-
              technical skills in solving problems.

           The AS IET Program uses IET 378, Principles of Total Quality Management for its
           capstone course. This course not only requires that students apply many of the topics
           introduced in courses taught earlier in the IET curriculum such as human relations,
           statistics and general problem solving, but it also requires that the students research and
           present how companies are currently applying these concepts to make their organizations
           successful in today‟s competitive markets.
           The BS IET Program requires a two semester capstone experience that requires a
           comprehensive project of the student‟s choice with supporting written and oral
           documentation.

    Cooperative Education Cooperative education credit used to satisfy prescribed elements of these
   criteria must include an appropriate academic component evaluated by the program faculty.
            The IET Program may award credit for co-op work experience after the student has
           submitted a written report after a work experience. If the faculty deem the work to be
           worthy, one credit hour will be awarded per report. If the student accumulates three credit
           hours of co-op credit, then those credits may be used to satisfy an IET Elective in the
           student‟s plan of study.
b. According to Criterion 4, Baccalaureate programs must consist of a minimum of 124 semester
   hours. Purdue University Calumet‟s BS IET Program has 127 semester hours of credit. Associate
   degree programs must consist of a minimum of 64 semester hours of credit. Purdue University
   Calumet‟s AS IET Program has 65 credit hours.
c. The process used to assure the quality of core courses is integral to the programs CQI efforts.
   Please see section B.2.e for a description and samples of the course embedded assessment system
   and section B.3 for our assessment and evaluation procedure.
d. Appendix 6 shows the course outlines for the required portions of the program.

                                               30
e. Sections B.4 and B.8 clearly demonstrate that adequate time and attention are given to each
   curricular component, consistent with the objectives of the program and the institution. In most
   cases, TAC/ABET minimum credit hours or areas covered are significantly exceeded.
f. Cooperative education can be used by a student to satisfy a technical elective. In this case, the
   student must work a minimum of three work sessions. At the end of each session, a report must
   be submitted to the IET Program Coordinator who then evaluates the work to see if it is
   appropriate for awarding credit. If three successful reports are submitted, the student is awarded
   one three credit hour elective. However, this system is rarely used. Most students have full-time
   or part-time jobs that they work at continuously rather than alternating work and study as in
   traditional cooperative education programs. This is simply the nature of our student body.
   Starting the fall, 2005 semester, on-campus student housing will be available which should result
   in more full-time students. These students will probably be more interested in a traditional
   cooperative education program.
g. The 2005 TAC/ABET Evaluation Team will see samples of student work from each major
   course used to prove TAC/ABET outcomes as well as supporting materials from other courses.
   By using the Course-Program Outcome-ABET Outcome maps provided in Section B.2.d, the
   evaluators will be able to easily follow the display materials.

   c. Show that the number of faculty members is sufficient to accommodate student-faculty
      interaction, advising and counseling, service activities, professional development, and interaction
      with practitioners and employers, as required by Criterion 5.

              Since this is a small program, students and faculty get acquainted very well, and students
              are very comfortable asking faculty questions outside of class time. Faculty have posted
              office hours, but students freely call upon faculty outside of those hours.
              All students are assigned to either Ms. Claire Edmonson or Mr. Patrick Leser, the
              department‟s full-time advisors. These two advisors handle all METS and CMET
              students. They are both excellent professionals and have been a great asset to the two
              departments. With two advisors, one is always available to service students. Moreover,


                                                    32
               the advisors free the faculty up to interact more with students, employers, and
               practitioners.
   d. Appendix 7 shows the faculty data forms, and all full and part-time faculty have more than
      sufficient industrial experience, professional practice, and technical currency to support the
      program.
   e. The METS Department has a continuous improvement/assessment plan described in Section 3
      that describes the process for effective faculty professional development. While travel budgets
      are tight, most travel requests are funded for at least $750 per trip. Many faculty simply pay any
      additional expenses. As shown in the faculty data sheets, many papers and texts have been
      written, and most faculty participate in national service.
   f. The IET faculty have complete authority to define, revise, implement, and achieve program
      objectives. The industrial advisory board is called upon to assist with all of these decisions to
      insure local needs are being met.

6. Facilities
  a. The METS Department is housed in the Anderson Building which dates to the late 1960‟s.
     However, the building was entirely renovated between 1998-2001 and is now the most modern
     building on campus. This building houses all of the department‟s laboratories shown in the list
     below (please click on each lab for a linked photo). All labs are equipped with modern, industrial
     quality equipment.

               ANDR 140 Manufacturing Lab
               ANDR 145 Quality Control Lab
               ANDR 149 Materials Testing Lab
               ANDR 216 Computer Graphics/Sketching Lab
               ANDR 217 Fluid Power Lab
               ANDR 220 Mechanical Computer Aided Design Lab
               ANDR 229 Computer Integrated Design & Manufacturing Lab/Senior Design Lab
               ANDR 244 Industrial Engineering Technology Lab
               CLO 234 Computer Graphics Design Lab

  b. As shown in Section a above, the department has excellent facilities to support program
     objectives. The department continually upgrades the facilities via purchases, grants, and
     donations. The department has an excellent record securing donations with more than $100,000
     worth of equipment donated in the 2004-2005 year.

      The MET Program has always strived to supply its students with laboratory experiences that
      directly transfer to industrial positions. Nearly all of the equipment used in the labs is industrial
      quality. The following table briefly describes the equipment used in the labs.

      Course                                     Equipment Used

                                           testers are all typical of those used in industrial
                                           metallurgical laboratories.

MET 242 – Manufacturing Processes II       This laboratory contains 10 conventional
                                           lathes, six milling machines, saws, drill
                                           presses, welders, a small foundry, and three
                                           full-size Haas CNC machine tools, all of
                                           industrial quality

MET 329 – Applied Heat Transfer            MET students have built the equipment used in
                                           this laboratory using commonly available
                                           industrial components.

EET 214- Electricity Fundamentals          The electrical laboratories use industrial
                                           quality meters and equipment.

The METS Department maintains four computer laboratories with more than 90 up-to-date
computers. These computers have the most current versions of AutoCAD, Inventor, and the
entire ProEngineer suite installed. In addition, typical office software is available as is graphics
software for photo, video, sound, and DVD editing. Color printers and scanners are also
available. All the labs are networked. The department has a full-time CAD coordinator, David
McLees, who maintains the software in the labs. In addition, the University has an entire
department who installs and maintains all the computer hardware. Computers that need repair are
generally fixed within 24 hours, and all labs maintain a high level of readiness.
All of the department‟s main computer labs are connected to the internet. Fewer than 10
computers are used that are not connected.
The METS Department maintains a library in room 203A of the Anderson building that contains
literature, catalogs, recent Thomas Registers, and completed student senior design projects for all
students to use as reference material. In addition, the University has a large library with an
extensive collection available for student use.

7. Institutional and External Support
  a. Institutional support, financial resources, and constructive leadership to achieve program
     objectives and assure continuity of the program, as required by Criterion 7 are described in the
     bulleted paragraphs below.
        The process to acquire, maintain, and operate facilities and equipment required to achieve
         program objectives and outcomes is described below:

         Financial Resources: Between 1998 and 2000, the Anderson Building which houses the MET
         faculty and laboratories was completely rebuilt and is now an excellent facility. The
         university has sufficient grounds, maintenance, and janitorial staff to keep the building in
         excellent condition, inside and out. Funds for equipment have been adequate since 2000.
         However, in the late 1990‟s, funds were more available, so significant upgrades to laboratory
         equipment were made then. In addition, students have been doing an excellent job of
         designing and manufacturing heat transfer and fluid dynamics equipment at low cost. Funds
         have been available to keep modern computers in the laboratories and to maintain software at
         the latest release.
         Human Resources: The METS Department has Mr. David McLees, the full-time CAD
         Coordinator who maintains software on all departmentally owned laboratory computers. In
         addition, the department also has Mr. Rick Rickerson, the full-time Mechanical &
         Manufacturing Laboratory Specialist to maintain the MET and IET laboratories.

        The university maintains an Office of Student Services which offers a wide range of services
         students can take advantage of. Please click anywhere in this paragraph to view that office‟s
         webpage, and then use your browser‟s BACK button to return here.

        Purdue University Calumet has in effect an excellent method for selecting faculty. When a
         position is approved, the department chooses a search committee that is generally composed
         of both METS Department and other faculty. The search committee prepares advertisements,
         receives applications, screens, interviews, and makes recommendations to the department
         head and dean who then make the final decision on candidates. The Human Resources
         Department insures all federal, state, and university guidelines are followed in the selection
         process. No new IET faculty have been hired in a number of years, but the system has been
         used recently for faculty in Construction Management Technology, Computer Graphics
         Technology, and Organizational Leadership & Supervision areas.
         The department head is responsible for the direct supervision and support of the faculty,
         although much of that is handled through mentors for tenure-track faculty, and program
         coordinators. The department has a collegial atmosphere, and most decisions are made by
         program groups and committees. The department feels it has an excellent system as
         demonstrated by the high level of promotion in the department.

8. Program Criteria

                              IET Program Associate & Bachelor Degree

     Note: ABET information in BLACK, Purdue University Calumet responses in BLUE.
                                     PROGRAM CRITERIA FOR
                            INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
                               AND SIMILARLY NAMED PROGRAMS
                              Lead Society: Institute of Industrial Engineers
     Applicability
     These program criteria apply to industrial engineering technology programs and to those with
     similar modifiers in their titles, leading to either an associate or a bachelor‟s degree.

     Objective
     An accreditable program in Industrial Engineering Technology will prepare graduates with the
     technical and managerial skills necessary to develop, implement, and improve integrated systems
     that include people, materials, information, equipment, and energy. Graduates at the associate
     level will be prepared for immediate employment, but will also be prepared to continue in
     baccalaureate studies in industrial engineering technology and related upper level studies.
     Graduates at the baccalaureate level will be prepared for careers in higher levels of system
     design, integration, and management.
              The objectives of the Purdue University Calumet IET Program are consistent with those
              of ABET as listed above. Please click anywhere in this paragraph to view the METS
              Department Continuous Improvement/Assessment page which has links to the IET
              Program Strategic Plan with published objectives. You may have to use your browser‟s
              BACK button several times to return here. Or, refer to Section B.2 of this report.
              As is evident by reviewing the course data forms, Purdue University Calumet‟s IET
              Program prepares AS graduates for immediate employment by introducing them to the
              introductory topics and experiences necessary to aid them in developing their skills that
              will be utilized in applicable IET careers. These graduates will have the base knowledge
              required to improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information,
              equipment and energy. The vast majority of IET students do not stop at the AS level,
              more than 90% continue for a BS degree.



                                                       39
       The BS IET Program prepares graduates for careers in higher levels of system design,
       integration and management by adding to the AS program‟s base knowledge with
       specialty topics found in the upper level courses. These courses include topics such as
       facility layout, project management and economic analysis, Production Planning &
       Control, Statistical Process Control, Safety, Creativity for business, as well as allowing
       the students to choose six additional higher level specialty courses that will result in
       attaining either a specialization in quality, manufacturing or simply a general IET degree.


Outcomes
Graduates must demonstrate the ability to accomplish the integration of systems using
appropriate analytical, computational, and application practices and procedures.
       The AS IET Program culminates in an integrated course that allows the students to
       demonstrate their abilities to integrate and improve systems through basic quality
       management techniques. Course IET 378, Principles of Total Quality Management is the
       final required course for the AS program and it requires that students use knowledge from
       all previous technical, management, human relations, and statistics/mathematics courses
       to show, among other things, their ability to solve business problems.
       At the BS level, the IET Program demonstrates the ability of graduates to integrate
       systems in the two-course senior design sequence, IET 495 and IET 497. In these
       courses, students pick an open-ended project and complete the project using most areas of
       knowledge from pre-requisite courses.
Graduates at the baccalaureate level must demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge of
probability, statistics, engineering economic analysis and cost control, and other technical
sciences and specialties necessary in the field of industrial engineering technology.
The BS IET Program requires courses in all areas listed (as well as offering additional electives
in several of these areas) as shown in the table below.
