Industrial Engineering and Management

Study Programme

When it comes to the development, implementation, and management of technical solutions, industry needs people with quantitative and qualitative interdisciplinary management competencies. This is becoming increasingly more relevant in a complex and globalized world where engineers capable of working at the interface between business and engineering are in high demand.

On the programme, you will participate in courses at a high academic level providing you with both quantitative and qualitative management competencies. You will work with mathematical optimization (operations research), simulation, and other quantitative tools together with a number of process tools that are crucial in the context of project management and change management. In addition, the programme focuses on the typical areas where extensive management competencies play a decisive role - e.g. operations management, supply chain management, innovation management, and problem structuring. The programme also contains a compulsory course in technical management of sustainable development.

The MSc Eng is a two-year graduate programme with a workload of 120 ECTS credit points.
