Abstract

This paper discusses a new approach taken in industrial engineering course delivery that brings real life case studies and active learning activities into the industrial engineering classroom. The active role that senior undergraduate students with internship and co-op experience play in helping to deliver the real life, active learning components of the course is also discussed. The paper first briefly summarizes the results of work that was completed on modeling student satisfaction and motivation in industrial engineering education. The results of this work led to this current effort of studying this new approach in industrial engineering course delivery. The paper goes on to explain the current and ongoing work being carried out in an engineering economy course to upgrade the curriculum, while also improving student satisfaction in the course by improving course delivery.
