Objectives of the Master Program
Modern enterprises are facing the challenge of producing at low costs with high quality and in short delay while ensuring high reliability of its equipment and reducing environmental impact. Industrial Engineering and Operations Research meet the challenge with innovative scientific technologies for efficient design, operation and maintenance of manufacturing systems.
This one-year master of science program deals with applications of advanced techniques of industrial engineering and operations research to decision making, especially scientific methods for modeling, performance evaluation, design, production planning and scheduling, supply chains management and maintenance of both manufacturing, service and logistics systems. Special attentions will be given to major problems raised in the design and operation of manufacturing and service systems. Thanks to close relationships of the research labs with some major industrial partners, students will learn how to apply these cutting-edge techniques and how to face the complexity of various industrial sectors such as semiconductor manufacturing, health care delivery systems, automotive industry and transportation.
