Industrial Engineering is about to see "the big picture" when one is dealing with complex processes and systems. The field focuses on analyzing the many 'wheels' that must work together so that an organization is able to function in the most efficient and effective way. As a student, you will get deep insights into diverse methodologies, techniques, and tools that you may apply to enhance the organization's performance. The capability you gain through this study makes you particularly well suited for both engineering and management positions.

A Master of Science degree in Industrial Engineering will provide students with the knowledge and capabilities to use appropriate techniques, skills, and tools to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve complex problems in both engineering and management. With normal progress, a student will be able to obtain a master's degree after two years, corresponding to 120 credits. If the student wants to combine the master's study with work in an external company, it is possible to extend the program to three or four years. A customized education plan will then be suggested. After finishing this education, students will have a solid foundation to enter a variety of positions at a global base. The typical positions are senior engineers, project managers, developers, consultants, managers, and researchers. Many of our former students are holding managerial or senior research positions in public organizations or private companies.
