Rationale
Prosperity of nation in general depends on the productivity of industries and quality of production. Technical managers, engineers, plant operators, machine operators, supervisors and workers working in industries have to compulsorily meet set standards of production in terms of quality, quantity and productivity so as to compete domestic and international market. This is possible for them only when they employ and exploit the principles of industrial engineering. Industrial engineering always aims to achieve higher productivity and better standards of quality through its constant endeavor in design, improvements and installation of integrated systems of human resource, machines and methods.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Improve productivity using work study and method study techniques.
ii. Analyze work content and calculate standard time in a given situation.
iii. Apply Statistical Quality Control tools in a given situation.
iv. Select material handling equipment.
v. Apply Ergonomics for human comfort at work place.
vi. Appreciate the emerging trends in industrial engineering.
