Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the collaboration between Industrial Engineering juniors and seniors at Mississippi State University. The framework for the collaboration consists of two required courses, Design of Industrial Systems, the capstone design course, and Manufacturing Processes, a course in the curriculum junior year. The collaboration is accomplished through project teams in both courses, with students in the senior course serving as leader-liaisons to the junior teams.
