API and management and analytics provider TIBCO Software has partnered with Yuan Ze University in Taiwan to expand data analytics capabilities and knowledge in the field of industrial engineering and management.
The two organizations propose to jointly engage students through workshops, research capabilities, and other practice-based training to empower students with advanced analytic skills.
The planned collaboration between TIBCO and Yuan Ze University is designed to support students and teachers from the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management.
Under the arrangement, the TIBCO Spotfire platform of solutions will be available for all students and will receive hands-on practice with TIBCO tools and support for various data analytic techniques to understand and implement for future research and employment.
TIBCO Spotfire solutions will be used in five key areas at the Yuan Ze University’s Department of Industrial Engineering and Management: smart production, mobile technology, and cloud computing, human factors in engineering and design, global logistics management, and big data analytics.
Teachers and students can also use TIBCO’s advanced industry solutions to develop professional skills and knowledge in the area of postgraduate research capabilities.
In addition, the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at Yuan Ze University will also incorporate TIBCO Spotfire in professional information technology courses where students will have at least 10 hours of practical training.
“Our educational philosophy is to cultivate our students with knowledge in engineering technology and management science to complement traditional industrial management skills, such as quality control and production management, with the newer developments in science and technology,” said Dr. Liang Yun-Chia, Professor and Chair of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at Yuan Ze University.
The Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) department at Yuan Ze University was established in 1989, and soon became one of the leading IEM organizations in Taiwan.
The school focuses on applications of diverse engineering principles and management techniques to the design, improvement, and maintenance of a high level of productivity for both manufacturing and service industries.
