Course Descriptions for BSMS Programs


Course Description

The BS/MS student needs to take up all the course requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management Engineering minor in Information Technology (BS IME-IT) and additional courses from the Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (MSIE) as shown below:

Courses No. of Units Type
COE571M Technology and Entrepreneurship 3 Major Course
IEN531M Inbound and Outbound Logistics 3 Major Course
IEN532M Lean Manufacturing 3 Major Course
IEN533M Information Systems Design and Management 3 Major Course
IEN534M Six Sigma Quality Systems 3 Major Course
Thesis 6  
TOTAL 21 units  

Additional Courses:


COE571M Technology and Entrepreneurship
3 units

This course covers entrepreneurship in technology ventures, and takes the master’s course student through the commercialization of an assigned technology idea into a viable enterprise, thereby simulating the entrepreneurship challenge faced by the non-inventor consultant, business partner or venture capitalist (named the “Steve Jobs model” in recognition of his skill/insight in spotting and creating the commercial opportunities from existing but under-appreciated inventions). It examines how technology ideas may be developed into opportunities and eventually into viable businesses; it takes the students through the process of crafting the business model, and then the business plan, which will be the final output of this course.


IEN531M Inbound and Outbound Logistics
2 units

This course covers the principles of a supply chain system and emphasizes on the elements of Inbound and Outbound activities and how to manage the flow of goods and materials. This course also includes discussions on the Extended Supply Chain Model.


IEN532M Lean Thinking/Lean Manufacturing
3 units

This course contains the principles of lean manufacturing, value stream mapping, waste elimination (muda), and cycle time improvements.


IEN533M Information Systems Design and Management
3 units

This course covers principles on how to design information flows and databases, flowcharting techniques, and new developments in Information Systems.


IEN534M Six Sigma Quality Systems
3 units

This course deals with the concept of six sigma and how it works. It also covers the DMAIIC methodology and important quality tools necessary to complete a six-sigma project such as SPC, DOE, VOC, Gage R and R, Process Capability Analysis, Multi-Variate Analysis, Process Mapping, and many more. The course focuses on linking the quality tools into a structured approach for achieving zero defects.
