Industrial Engineering and Management
Faculty of Engineering Economics and Management
The study program “Industrial Engineering and Management” was established in 1998 within the framework of the international Nordic-Baltic network of technical universities BALTECH (now NORDTEK) with the aim of providing graduates in engineering and natural sciences with an opportunity to deepen their professional knowledge, and, at the same time, develop managerial competencies, providing a complex understanding of engineering systems and their management.
The program content provides an interdisciplinary approach and student-centered education, providing students with in-depth knowledge in industrial engineering and management. Within the framework of the program, the students acquire knowledge of industrial systems and management processes in companies during the previous study period in the different fields of engineering sciences. Within the program, there are opportunities to expand their knowledge in the participating universities of NORDTEK (Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia), Riga Technical University (Latvia), Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (Lithuania), Linkoping University (Sweden), Lund University (Sweden) and the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), thus ensuring a high level of study quality and allowing students to participate in inter-university mobility.
The aims of the program are to create and develop students’ competence in industrial engineering and management, to develop professional, creative and research skills by preparing socially responsible interdisciplinary professionals capable of providing integrated and effective systems management in a variety of industries, as well as value-added research.
Graduates of the program may work as a Systems Management Engineer, Manufacturing Company Manager, as a manager of a production company specializing in the development or maintenance of sophisticated engineering systems, as an engineering system management specialist in companies and organizations of any size, or as a self-employed or individual merchant.
Graduates have the opportunity to continue their studies in doctoral programs.
