The study program is mainly intended for students with a bachelor degree in mechanical, electrical power or electronics engineering.
With a M.Sc. degree in industrial Engineering, you have excellent job opportunities as the study equips you with a comprehensive knowledge set in dealing with technical and managerial challenges in manufacturing industries; i.e. automation, oil and gas, mechanical and electrical, logistics and shipping.
Many of our former students are holding managerial positions in public or private companies, and some have continued their education towards a Ph.D. degree at a university or a research institute.
What do you learn
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 profitable way.
Students may work in one of our many industrial projects as part of their final M.Sc. thesis. This provides unique opportunities to get in contact with a possible future employer. To enhance a solid cooperation with companies, students have about 28 weeks to work with their thesis and is rewarded with 45 credits upon completion.
Want to "dig deeper" in the subject areas that you’ve been through during M.Sc. study? We offer Ph.D. study in cooperation with Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Luleå University of Technology.
Industrial Engineering education teaches subjects such as computer aided design and manufacturing, industrial robotics, optimisation, data management, computer integrated and virtual manufacturing, Lean & Six Sigma, production logistics, and supply chain management.
It adds up to a high degree of project-based teaching, which is becoming increasingly important in an era where the focus on ability of innovative teamwork increases. Through the study, students are also strongly encouraged to improve their communication and dissemination capabilities.
To be admitted to the study program a bachelor degree in mechanical, electrical power or electronics is required. Applicants with other backgrounds may be admitted based on a professional evaluation.
