The Outcome 2.4Assessment of pilot test of the key courses and finalize the curriculum and the courses sums up the pilot testing of 10 selected courses from MSIE4.0 curriculum. The recommendations for MSIE4.0 curriculum eventual revision are formulated on feedback from students, teachers and partially, other stakeholders. The main instruments used for gathering feedback are surveys that included students and teachers. Questionnaires that were used for that purposes enabled gathering feedback on general course characteristics, course delivery, workshop and laboratory sessions and general perception of tested courses. Students survey has been launched in accordance to the schedule of pilot testing during autumn and spring semesters of 2019/2020 academic years. Altogether, 114 students from 9 Partner universities participated in the survey. Teachers survey has been made after disclosing the results of students survey.
Outcome 2.2 – Syllabuses for All Courses in the Curriculum
The following document presents the key outcome, set of syllabuses in master studies in Industrial Engineering curriculum, of the project titled “Curriculum Development of Master’s Degree Program in Industrial Engineering for Thailand Sustainable Smart Industry – MSIE4.0” that has been funded with support from the European Commission with CBHE framework of ERASMUS+ program. The outcome is based on cooperation between 6 Thai and 3 EU universities that after identifying the gap between the currently running programs and the needs of industry and students have prepared a modernized studying program. The course design process adopts the logic of the backward course design concept, develops its own logic on introducing student-oriented learning and active learning principles, and covers Industry 4.0 technologies, management, and design approaches.
The curriculum includes 16 courses, among which there are three core courses, accepted by the consortium as the basics to introduce Industry 4.0 concept into the Industrial Engineering field of knowledge, one obligatory course covering transversal skills, and 12 electives covering important fields of IE programs. The integral part of the set of 16 course syllabuses is the Outcome 2.1. A modernized curriculum for a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering that presents the overview of the studying program, its learning outcomes, workload, and organizational structure. The integral part of this document is two annexes: Annex I. Syllabuses and Annex II. First Reviews of 16 Syllabuses.
Since June 2019, ten courses from our MSIE 4.0 curriculum have been pilot tested by our nine partner universities. There were a total of twelve pilot tests. Sustainable Supply Chain Management was offered two times by CUT. Communication and People Skills Development for Engineering leaders was also offered two times but by two partner universities. Two courses were taught by a team of instructors. Several courses were offered with teaching methods required high student engagement. All courses applied project, problem, or both.
