ENGT 50700: Collaborative Leadership and Agile Strategy 

This course provides students with a foundation in collaborative leadership and agile strategy. The course brings together theories and insights from a variety of disciplines including engineering, management, psychology, and social science. Increasingly manufacturing management is being called upon to apply their technical skills in collaborative environments that cut across organizational units and inter-organizational boundaries. Understanding how to design and guide collaborations and apply agile approaches for meeting strategic objectives is an important skillset and knowledge base in the 21st Century economy, defined more by open networks than the rigid hierarchies of the past.

ENGT 55000: Manufacturing System Design For Sustainability 

This course prepares manufacturing and information technology leaders to design and analyze manufacturing processes to achieve manufacturing system objectives that meet internal and external customers’ quality, cost and delivery requirements within a safe environment. The course project covers major aspects of manufacturing system design and Industry 4.0 in the context of meeting customer needs. Technology leaders and entrepreneurs learn how to work with others to develop the design of manufacturing systems that are sustainable (business, ecological, social, technological) for the long — term. When to use lean and six — sigma techniques in the context of the manufacturing enterprise system design to meet customer needs will be assessed from a system design perspective, through analytical and computer simulation techniques, and through the use of physical modeling tools.

ENGT 58300: Applied Engineering Statistics For Industry 

The purpose of this course is to teach technology leaders how to make better decisions regarding business and manufacturing processes by having a deep understanding of process capability. Emphasis is placed on the application of probability, statistical analysis and Design of Experiments (DOE) to understand, determine and develop process capability. Tools and concepts explored in this course include fishbone diagrams, Pareto charts, QA/QC, FMEAs, SPC, Cp/CpK, upper and lower control limits/charts, Six Sigma, ANOVA, and the Taguchi Methodology. Through practical applications and hands — on experiments, this course works to bridge the gap between the classroom and real world experimental design.

ENGT 581-1: Smart Manufacturing and Global Supply Chain Management 

Advanced manufacturing uses innovative technology to improve products or processes through the Internet of Things. Smart manufacturing is not limited to emerging technologies; rather, it is composed of efficient, productive, highly integrated, tightly controlled processes across a spectrum of globally competitive U.S. manufacturers and suppliers, including the facilities themselves. This course will examine the selection, characteristics, and optimization of materials, processes, big data, cloud analysis of design data, control and adaptive theories, and personnel in a production environment. Examining global manufacturing issues through a variety of business examples, you will study the framework that explains the characteristics and challenges surrounding global supply chain management investigating the impact on supplier, manufacturer, and customer.

ENGT 581-2: Internet Of Things and Cybersecurity 

The internet has brought about the ability to embed computing into everyday devices to allow them to send and receive information. These devices known as the Internet of Things (IoT) will require management at all levels to understand the inherent security risks due to the interconnection via the internet. Illegally accessing (hacking) IoT is increasingly becoming the most pervasive form of industrial espionage in use today. Understanding the threats aimed at IoT and how to protect IoT will be the key to keeping sensitive corporate information and secrets secure and private, and will require everyone’s participation, not just the IT department. For this course students will learn the basics of research of and into cybersecurity, and the techniques used to commit industrial related crimes; how to detect these potentially catastrophic crimes; and the means to protect one of the company’s most important assets … its systems and data.

ENGT 54000: Change Management For Enterprise Sustainability 

Change management is at the core of an engineering and technology organization’s processes and data, and it affects every member of the enterprise. Change management provides a method for identifying, analyzing, preparing, implementing, validating, and documenting engineering changes throughout a product’s lifecycle, communicated in real time. For this course, the core elements, data structures, stakeholder, and workflows of change management and their role as enablers of the digital thread and the digital enterprise are discussed. The application of the industry standard CM2 methodology is emphasized as a strategy to provide control, maintain data integrity, and improve visibility and traceability of changes.

ENGT 60500: Research Writing Strategies 

The course is designed to provide engineering technology graduate students with the necessary intellectual abilities and knowledge to effectively mine and analyze the literature found in the Purdue University licensed databases and artificial intelligence search engine bots. The course will cover various aspects of research writing, including topic selection, literature review, data collection and analysis, and report writing. Students will learn how to identify appropriate research topics, develop research questions, and conduct a thorough literature review. Graduate Students will also learn how to collect and analyze data, and how to effectively present their findings in a clear and concise manner. The course will emphasize the importance of proper citation and referencing and used in engineering technology research. The course will also cover the use of figures, tables, and other visual aids to enhance the presentation of data following APA 7th edition or newer. During the course, students will be required to write at least five academic research papers for the course
