Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. RCET


introduction

The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering was established in 2003. Since its beginning, the Department has produced highly skilled and qualified engineers who have contributed towards the economy of the country. The department has continuously been accredited by the PEC up till the 2014 session.
The department is making its transition from the traditional semester system to this new OBE system for its undergraduate program from the 2015 session. For this purpose, the mission statement of the program is written in harmony with vision and mission of the university. The program educational objectives (PEOs) are mapped with the vision and mission of the university and the department.

Mission

To impart quality industrial and manufacturing engineering knowledge through effective learning process for life-long career and leadership in the industry.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1: Effective application of knowledge and analytical skills to solve complex engineering problems related to Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.
PEO 2: Demonstrate management and communication skills complimenting technical competence.
PEO 3: Ability to use and improve upon contemporary and emerging technologies while focusing lean methodologies.
PEO 4: Demonstrate professional and ethical values and commitment towards continuous professional improvement.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

PLO 1 Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
