The final project enables students to acquire experience and demonstrate their ability to tackle the challenges of a practical project in an actual organization, or a research project in Industrial Engineering. The project must deal with issues related to Industrial Engineering in organizations. Each project must be carried out by a team of 1 to 3 students. Initially, the project team defines measures to assess the effectiveness and contribution of the project. The final report submitted is the major component in the final grade.

The team must find a supervisor to guide them through the project, and the course coordinator must formally approve the individual chosen. The supervisor must be a PhD or faculty member in a recognized academic institution; or have a master�s degree in any field with a B.Sc. in Engineering; or have a bachelor�s degree and at least 10 years of experience in the area of the project.

Stages: First semester � Report 1: Project proposal; Report 2: Framework and project description (including work plan); Second semester � Report 3: Progress report; Report 4: Final report including results and conclusions.
