The Industrial Engineering Department at Universidad Icesi led a systematic review of the Industrial Engineering (IE) undergraduate program curriculum. Universidad Icesi at Cali, Colombia is a private institution recognized among the best universities in the country. The curriculum review and design was conceived as part of the IE undergraduate program’s continuous improvement process and took into consideration the fundamental principles supporting the institution’s educational project or PEI (Proyecto Educativo Institucional), the principles established by CDIO (Conceive–Design–Implement-Operate) approach and the student outcomes defined by ABET.
In this paper, the proposed IE integrated curriculum is presented. The curriculum allows for the development of the skills defined in the recent graduating student profile, skills that are mapped to student outcomes (a-k). Assessment results at the course and program levels are presented, as well as the consolidation of the program’s continuous improvement process.
