Industrial Engineering Project


This module is industry based. Students will use the knowledge, skills and competences acquired in the programme to identify and implement savings in a manufacturing plant.  Students must use the DMAIC Cycle in a structured manner to eliminate waste (MUDA) from processes, products, and other business activities of the student's employer / work experience organisation, while having a positive impact on financial performance.  Students have a target of €50,000 annual savings (if the saving from the project were calculated over a year, they would result in saving over € 50,000).  The project can be one big project or multiple smaller projects.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Develop their ability to work as an individual.

  2. Apply the engineering knowledge and experience accumulated throughout the course to a specific problem.

  3. Independently conduct research in a particular field of engineering.

  4. Apply the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, & Control) Cycle to demonstrate the ability to develop original solutions to moderately complex engineering problems.

  5. Develop and present a project plan which modularises the project into work packages and identify the resources required to complete the work packages.  

  6. Report on the Performance of the Project including Scope, Schedule, Cost and Customer Acceptance. 

  7. Communicate findings and make recommendation through different media.
