Department of Industrial and Production Engineering
Industrial and Production Engineering is a core asset for industries competing on a global market. The programme provides competencies both in technology and management aspects of modern production systems. The Production Systems profile provides with skills in design, implementation and operation of conventional and advanced production operations. The knowledge of core subjects in the curriculum starting from basic engineering, design and production to the advanced CAD/CAM/CAE, automation, robotics, simulation, computer-based visualisation, and human factors in complex systems emphasizes on the creation of efficient, effective and innovative systems with lower product development costs and a greatly shortened design cycle.
The methods to manage complexity and control of advanced production systems have been added in the curriculum. The Production Management profile focuses on new production strategies and management. The Manufacturing Technology profile deals with methods and technology for advanced manufacturing. Modern Reengineering and improvement tools as well as methods used in analysing manufacturing system performance are the specialized areas in the curriculum. In addition to the core subject areas, a range of elective courses provide a wide spectrum of choices in the emerging areas.
Over the years, the department has created and maintained very good laboratories with modern infrastructure. The department’s library and internet facilities are simply good and have registered extra-ordinary utilization levels. The new changes in the curriculum enable learners to acquire excellent knowledge and skills to be competitive in the global perspective.
The department has 10 faculty members out of which one holds Ph.D degree and 4 are pursuing their doctoral program. There are 23 publications in various Journals and Conferences both nationally and internationally.
