Graduate Courses for Fall – 2013
A survey of the interactive multimedia development process, knowledge base, and applications in business and industry. Particular attention is paid to research issues surrounding theoretical, technological, and interactive techniques, and validating those approaches through applied research. Emphasis is placed on the interdisciplinary nature of the development of new media tools.
This course deals with the statistics and probability methods used in reliability engineering. The primary focus of the course is on the statistical methods used to estimate a product’s reliability from product failure data and covariate information. The course also touches on the probability modeling methods that use knowledge of system architecture and system component reliability to calculate system reliability.
The course provides advanced quality techniques required for improving quality, reliability and maintenance in modern business enterprises by providing essential tools. The course will focus on problem solving and team sessions with high participation of students.
An introduction to measurement strategies in industrial, technical, and human resource development environments. The evaluation of measurement outcomes will be the primary focus of the course.
Examines the contemporary issues of continuous improvement in quality and productivity in manufacturing and service industries. Includes a close examination of the evolving philosophies bearing on the scope, improvement, and costs of quality assurance programs in industry and technology.
The factors influencing decisions during the initiation, implementation, and termination of industrial and manufacturing projects are examined. Students work as project teams, using project management tools to develop implementation strategies.
This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of business processes and strategies needed to integrate logistical system management. The importance of good supply chain design, planning, operation and performance improvement in an organization is discussed.
This seminar course covers the concepts of database modeling and architecture including topics as relational modeling, advanced object-oriented modeling and object persistence.
Introduction to the challenges faced by the practicing technologist when working and interacting with international technical personnel, both here and abroad, including history, standards, education, and practice of technology outside the United States.
Nanotechnology would lead to greater innovation in many industries and therefore, greater interaction would be necessary between researchers in different fields to achieve this. Since nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field of discovery, scientists working in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, information technology, materials science, and other fields need to understand and manage technological breakthroughs.
Development and improvement of interpersonal and group dynamic skills for effective leadership in organizations. Emphasis on action learning and real-world application of skills.Open to all graduate students with special consideration given to senior OLS students with 3.0 GPA and School of Technology graduate students.
An examination of ethical, legal and policy issues facing business and technology leaders. Topics include ethical decision-making, corporate social responsibility, codes of ethics, public policies and government regulations, international business practices, technology innovation, risk management in a global environment, and specific areas of law – employment, health and safety, environmental, contract, warranties and liabilities, intellectual property, technology law, and international laws and regulations. This course uses the case study method and involves active discussion and debate.
Analysis of research and evaluation of research reports. Emphasis on understanding the application of fundamental statistical methods in design and interpretation of research findings in industrial, technical, and human resource development environments.
Introduction to Contemporary mechatronics system elements, their structures, operations, and modeling. Static mechatronics system components and kinematics of dynamic mechatronics system components and their couplings.Modeling and simulation of rotating machinery and actuator systems. Mechatronics signals, systems and controls for packaging machinery. Integration of heterogeneous hardware and software for packaging machinery systems and their integration
This course will cover the fundamental concepts and design implications required to develop and implement intrusion detection and prevention systems that address security violations in computer systems. Topics to be covered include: main classes of attacks against computer systems, taxonomy and architecture of intrusion detection and prevention systems, network traffic analysis and feature extraction algorithms, signature and anomaly based techniques, key heuristic based and machine learning based techniques and algorithms for intrusion detection. Intrusion detection and prevention systems performance evaluation and issues related to security and defense in depth will also be addressed. Leveling courses may be required based on undergraduate degree. Graduate status or senior status with instructor approval
