Educational Facilities

IE Lab Photo Facilities and laboratories of Çankaya University serve all of our students providing equipment and tools, supporting our students' educational needs. In addition to university-wide facilities and laboratories, our department has two industrial engineering-specific laboratories:

  • Modeling & Simulation Laboratory,
  • Work Study and Ergonomics Laboratory,

providing our students with facilities where they can have experience on various program areas and link their theoretical knowledge with practice using the provided software and equipment.

There are also a Machine shop and a Flexible Manufacturing System Laboratory within Mechanical Engineering Department for the related courses of Industrial Engineering Department.

Modeling and Simulation Laboratory (ModSim Laboratory)

ModSim Lab Photo ModSim Laboratory, located in room H338, has 30 desktop computers with internet connection, a projector and a smart board. Various licensed software programs such as GAMS, Arena, Minitab, Dia ERP, Microsoft Office that are very important for industrial engineering curriculum are installed on computers. Its schedule is updated every semester based on the IE course schedule. It is open between 9:00 and 17:00 to all IE students except for the laboratory lecture hours. ModSim lab is primarily used for developing simulation and mathematical programming models on computer and conducting statistical and data analyses in industrial engineering courses and research. It is also a convenient study environment for our students where they frequently work on their assignments such as homework and projects.

Our department collaborates with Mavvo ERP and Dia ERP providing hands-on experience for our students on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Students receive in-class training and certification after laboratory exercises in a seven-week long program as part of the Production Information Systems course which aims to increase the capabilities of our students on information systems both from a theoretical and a practical perspective.

Work Study and Ergonomics Laboratory

ModSim Lab Photo This laboratory is located in room NB01B. It serves as work study and ergonomics laboratory in which required pieces of equipment are used to measure, test, calibrate and verify certain tasks, movements, and processes. This laboratory is mainly used for the Work Study and Ergonomics course in the Industrial Engineering curriculum. There are several different laboratory tasks performed by students to enhance the theoretical knowledge given in class studies. By using tools such as stopwatch and environmental measurement instruments, students conduct time study activities and work environment evaluations. By using tools such as audiometer, tape measure and anthropometer, students learn how to define the standards of equipment used for providing workers a better work environment. Students are expected to conduct assembly tasks and do the required measurements in order to calculate cycle time, productivity ratio and production rate of these tasks. Practicing all these activities help students analyze real life work systems and find ways to make them more productive in their future life.
