Abstract

This paper discusses the results of a study aimed to understand the learning preferences, motivation, and satisfaction of junior and senior level industrial engineering students. While researching the literature on engineering education it became clear that little work exists that purely examines industrial engineering students, and virtually no work examines industrial engineering students' learning styles, motivation, and satisfaction collectively. This paper will carefully examine the learning styles of industrial engineering undergraduate students and will study the course and instructional practices that motivate them, and in turn, bring them satisfaction with their undergraduate education. Industrial engineering online education is a topic that has also received increased attention. Suggestions for designing industrial engineering course content and delivery both in class and on-line are made in an attempt to improve the industrial engineering education experience and help keep students in industrial engineering through improved instructional methods and course delivery structure.
