91-201. Engineering Management and Globalization
As globalization leads to an internationally integrated production and consumption of goods, cultural products, and services, local and national identities are challenged. Globalization creates both challenges and opportunities for companies providing goods or services. This course discusses the impact of globalization on the industrial and systems engineering discipline, in a multidisciplinary and multi national context. For engineers to competently operate in a globalized environment, they must understand the context, methodologies content and outcomes. Critical thinking, systems thinking, integration of technical and, professional and business acumen is necessary. Stability requires knowledge about understanding the complexity involved and learning to manage it. The course will also deal with: impact on industrial, production, and national systems. It should help prepare students and giving them skills for solving complex systems, and life-long learning and continuous improvement.(3 lecture, 2 laboratory hours a week.) Credit Weight 4.0:
