Main Article Content
the research’s objective is to study industrial engineers’ qualifications required by an industrial sector for the year of 2009-2013 at an undergraduate level. The research methodology starts with the study of curricular models of industrial engineering education to describe the currently offered industrial engineering programs and their curricular contents. The other study is several industrial companies’ recruitment qualifications of new industrial engineers. Identification of Thai industrial needs is conducted by using a questionnaire survey of three Thai major industries including Automotive Industry, a Plastic Industry and an Electrical & Electronics Industry. The result shows that the industries place the most important qualification category on engineer’s attitudes with an average score of 4.24. Engineer’s personality and characteristic gets an average score of 3.81. Computer skills get an average score of 3.48. Educational background gets an average score of 3.44. Working experience and special skills get the lowest average score of 3.21. In conclusion, industrial engineering education should prepare the graduates in higher workplace expectations by focusing on integrated knowledge and skill to strengthen core competence and communication ability as well as positive attitudes and social responsibility.
