Summary

How can you design an electronic toll collection system? How can a production plant minimize production costs without compromising on quality and safety? How can you design a complex consumer product?

These are typical questions that a graduate of the Master's programme Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) can address. In a progressively technological society, IEM engineers will increasingly become leaders of technological innovation and design.

A Student of the Master's degree programme Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) learns how to deal with practical problems in businesses. A focus lies on how to find solutions to problems while taking on a technical and scientific design perspective. The general aim of the IEM Master's programme is to train engineers to acquire a thorough overview of all primary and secondary business processes, especially with respect to the design of a technological product or process.

You can choose between two specialisations:

* PTL: Production Technology and Logistics

* PPT: Product and Process Technology

More than its nearest competitors, the IEM Master's degree programme of the University of Groningen focuses on technology. About 65% of the curriculum is dedicated to engineering and technology, and about 35% focuses on management and business.

Job prospects

Career opportunities are abundant for Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) engineers. Career-market analyses consistently show that there is a strong need for professionals with a combined technical and managerial background.

IEM engineers with a Production Technology and Logistics (PTL) specialisation

IEM engineers with a PTL specialisation can start a career as a product manager, involved in the development of new innovative products within the tight boundaries of technical, market and product-related constraints.

Product and Process Technology (PPT) specialised IEM engineers

PPT-specialised IEM engineers can become members of product and process design teams or for example begin a career as a production manager in industrial companies.

Job examples

  • Product manager
  • Product developer
  • Production manager
