Industrial engineering and its relation to the class

  1. Industrial engineering and its relation to the class
  • Management Administration

    Companies must make efficient use of their management resources (human, material, financial, and information) for getting competitive advantage. In this course, we will develop knowledge on topics ranging from corporate fundraising to operations, organizations, and management by the group discussion, especially on the financial and human categories.

  • Marketing

    Planning, design, development, and sales of products and services that customers consider to have value are essential to the continuing existence of a company or organization. In this course, students will learn fundamental concepts of marketing such as strategies, frameworks, and processes for organizational activities, as well as data-based statistical evaluation methods.

  • Probability Theory and Statistics

    The role of probability theory and statistics is pulling meaningful information out of large volumes of data such as stock prices, foreign exchange rates, corporate financial indicators, and other public data, as well as client data possessed by companies. This course aims to achieve understanding of basic content in the field of probability theory and statistics, enabling students to use this field's analysis methods appropriately for their goals.

  • Information Engineering

    In the modern world, everyone carries around a computer called a smartphone, and most people would recognize that a computer is an amazing tool. What is it about computers that makes them amazing? This course aims to consider the aspect of the fundamental concept of computers which is the source of their amazing properties and also think about their possibilities for the future.

  • Information System Practice

    In modern industrial engineering and management, the use of information-handling systems is essential for application of personnel, materials, and financial resources. In this course, the goal of studies is to improve computer-driven information usage skills (literacy) and statistical data analysis skills for industrial engineering and management applications.

  • Operations Research

    In order to continue to exist, companies and organizations must efficiently use their limited resources (personnel, materials, money, and information) and carry out decision-making for designing, planning, and producing the optimal products and services for their business. This operations research course will teach students a mathematical technique that supports optimal decision-making for organizations.

  • System Design Theory

    Our daily lives are enriched through the use of a variety of systems for applications such as management, production, and information. In this course, students will first develop an understanding of the concept of a system, then learn system design methods for the creation of helpful systems for society.

  • Human Factors and Ergonomics

    We should consider user needs and requirements for the products and services produced by corporate activities. Students will learn the basics of human-centered design which can adapt to the physical and cognitive activities of users, aiming to develop products and services which are safe and easy to use, comfortable workplaces and environments where people can live their daily lives pleasantly.

  • New Manufacturing Techniques

    Students learn about the framework for manufacturing goods starting from the technical developments of the 21st century, advanced production techniques which apply science and technology, and product case studies. In this way, they improve their thinking ability concerning the creation of new products using science and technology.

  • Environment Management

    Environmental factors such as day-to-day conditions, lighting, noise, and heat at the production site have various impacts on the safety, efficiency, and comfort of operations, as well as the health of workers. Students will learn about the necessity of a labor safety and hygiene management system with consideration for the varying characteristics of different people and consider what kind of environment is easy to work in.

  • Robot Assembly Engineering Work

    Students learn about the fundamental components of robots such as sensors, actuators, and microcomputers, and by building an actual working robot, they develop basic knowledge of machinery, mechanisms, and electrical circuits. By actually operating their robots, students understand the fundamentals of a control framework.

  • International Communication

    We have welcomed experienced instructors with the goal of cultivating international talents who can use multicultural communication to put language skills to use and take on active roles in business in foreign countries. In addition, this course is also linked to a language training session in Malaysia intended to give students a chance to communicate with foreigners.

  • Production Management

    Production management serves the function of planning and controlling production activities in order to deliver the necessary products at the time they're needed in the volume required to the place where the client needs them. In this course, following an overview of various forms of production, students will learn about material procurement and storage management, production progress management, and other core elements of production management.

  • Operations Management

    This course introduces various methods of Industrial Engineering (IE), which was the basis for industrial engineering and management, and students learn about on-site improvement. Students will also study production base operation methods such as supply and demand planning, as well as cooperative management for globally-expanded production and sales base locations, as broader applications of production management.

  • Cost Management

    This course focuses on information related to a company's financial management resources. Students learn about corporate cost accounting procedures and acquire wide-ranging knowledge related to cost management, engaging discussion on a broad range of topics related to management accounting (such as decision-making and performance evaluation accounting) for cost information.

  • Exercise on Manufacturing Systems Engineering

    Production systems that provide low-cost, high-quality products to society are essential elements that enrich our daily lives. In this course, students will learn about development methods for lean production systems and quality management methods for ensuring delivery of high-quality products, using an experimental production line for practical learning.

  • Supply Chain Management

    In manufacturing activities, a variety of factors are linked together in a chain of procurement, production and sales. Understanding these processes is extremely important for the design and management of production systems. In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of supply chain management and some methods for solving the problems in this field.
