Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology
This program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
According to the Institute of Industrial Engineers I.I.E., the Industrial Engineering are those that are interested in engineering design, development, and construction of an integrated system consisting of people, materials, information, machinery and energy. It requires a specialized skill in mathematics, physics, social sciences and management knowledge are all together, in addition to the basics and methods of engineering analysis and design to know and predict developments and finding the results from the system.
It is worth mentioning, that in spite of that the word industry is also known as common, linked to industrial enterprises, but it applies to any institution and organization, we can apply the principles, concepts and tools of industrial engineering in all sectors, whether productivity (factories) or service-(Advisory institutions, hospitals, banks, etc.).
To achieve excellence in industrial engineering education, community service, and applied research, to provide local and regional markets with highly qualified graduates.
Contributing to the advancement and development of Palestinian society by preparing excellent industrial engineering professionals for both manufacturing and service sectors through an interactive curriculum to current and future needs, market-driven research, highly qualified staff, well-equipped laboratories, effective training on latest technologies, sustainable industry interaction, and positive atmosphere for students, faculty and staff.
- Program objectives:
The Industrial Engineering program at An-Najah National University commits itself to the following Program Educational Objectives (P.E.O.):
PEO 1: Be effective in applying various tools of industrial engineering in an integrated fashion to solve real-world problems to cater for the needs of various industrial sectors.
PEO 2: Become leaders in their profession equipped with professional and ethical responsibilities.
PEO3: Purse successful career, both nationally and internationally, sustained by life-long learning experiences.
Industrial Engineering has emerged as one of the effective disciplines that are optimized to solve the complex issues in the world of technology, in the factories, in the production systems, and in service-institutions around the world. The evaluation of a certain factory or an enterprise is a difficult and complicated dilemma because it requires the knowledge in basic sciences, engineering sciences, management, behavioral sciences, computer science, information, and the economy. It also requires a broader knowledge of topics concerned with the fundamental principles of production systems.
One of the urgent reasons for the emergence of industrial engineering, is the industrial revolution and the urgent need for trained people and industrially prepared so that they can plan, design, and follow-up with complex and large systems operations, in addition, the urgent need to increase the effectiveness, the efficiency and productivity of operations, as well as improving product quality and services.
And we have an agreement for graduation projects with Aziza Poultry Company.
Teaching and Learning
Teachers in this department depend on the use of technology in education aiming to improve and develop the educational process. Their experiences were wonderful and distinctive through developing and teaching several courses using Moodle program. They display the material for academic courses so that they are more fun for the teacher and the students with keeping the scientific content and it also helped in the enrichment in the illustration of the images and videos related to the specific theme within the exact sequence and smooth material content, as well as to enrich the educational process through direct communication with students via e-learning features, where the ads and the creation of forums are placed to discuss some ideas and questions which have been asked. The experience was both successful and enjoyable for the student and the teacher and it was easier to help in explaining and communicating the information to the student in a fun way.
Coursework and Assessment
Teachers in this department depend on various methods followed by Quality and Accreditation unit
of university education (ABET), and through a number of ways in evaluating:
- Formative assessment.
- Diagnostic assessment.
- Final assessment.
Formative assessment depends on several methods, including: classroom discussion and homework-follow-it-up. The most important aims achieved by this type of assessment are: to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the students, to treat weaknesses and avoiding it, and to enhance the strengths and raise the motivation of the learner to learn and continue with it.
Diagnostic assessment aims to discover the strengths and weaknesses in the collection of the learner and is closely linked to the formative assessment l on the one hand and the final assessment on the other hand. One of its most important aims is to identify the causes of learning difficulties faced by the learner so it can be solved.
The final assessment determines the degree of achievement of learner’s major outputs to learn a certain course.
