Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify the Industrial Engineering Technology (IET) curriculum requirements through the application of systems engineering design tools and methods in a graduate-level engineering management course. Methodology: Four teams of students in a Management of Systems Engineering graduate course defined IET course requirements by applying systems engineering design tools and methods. The teams apply Voice of Customer and Quality Function Deployment methods to define requirements of four main stakeholder groups, including: current students, faculty and administration, employers, and alumni. The team goals are to: benchmark existing ABET accredited IET and Industrial Engineering programs; identify IET students’ skills required for the future engineering challenges; incorporate interconnected experiences throughout the curriculum; enhance courses to include the university’s Common Academic Program (CAP) requirements; and identify growing industries where IET skills can be applied. Findings: This is a work in progress, and constitutes the first step in transforming the university’s Industrial Engineering Technology curriculum. The results of this study will serve as a basis for integration of experiences and courses to enhance the success of our Industrial Engineering Technology graduates. Value: The proposed curriculum will enhance the analytical and technical skills required for an Industrial Engineering Technology undergraduate to excel in the future engineering world.
