Tsinghua University (China)

Quality, Statistics and Reliability (QSR): QSR is one of the major teaching and research areas in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Tsinghua University. The research focus covers: modeling of complex systems, run-to-run process control, multivariate statistical process control, design of experiments, reliability and safety of key systems, system reliability, maintenance and replacement, etc. The research deals with real quality and reliability problems and challenges from semiconductor manufacturing, solar cell manufacturing, railway systems, power systems and human computer systems. The faculty has published extensively on journals in the related areas.

The department offers a broad range of courses on QSR to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Postgraduate-level courses are offered in two tracks, targeting to students with and without background in Industrial Engineering and relative subjects, respectively.

Undergraduate level: 30160103 Probability and Applied Statistics; 40160203 Quality Control and Quality Management; 40160442 Design of Experiments; 40160532 Reliability Engineering and Facility Management.

Postgraduate level: (Track A) 70160263 Applied Statistics; 80160052 Modern Safety Engineering; 80160272 Quality Engineering; (Track B) 80160232 Advanced Statistics; 80160172 Advanced Quality Management.
