Objectives of the Master Program
Modern enterprises are facing the challenge of producing at low costs with high quality and with short lead times 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 chain management and maintenance of both manufacturing, service and logistics systems. Special attention is given to major issues raised in the design and operation of manufacturing and service systems. Thanks to the close relationships that the research labs enjoy with some major industrial partners, students can 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.
