22 years ago, Department of Industrial Engineering initiated close Industry-University collaboration through the capstone system design project course.
With the support of academic and industrial advisors, IE senior students work in groups of 5 to 6 in order to solve real life problems of the companies.
Up to now, 397 system design projects accomplished by the students have been successfully implemented in 86 firms.
