ITS (Information Technologies and Supply Chain)

Contact: Nabil Absi

ITS is one of the advanced options for 3rd year ISMIN students. It is mainly supported by SFL faculty. Its objective is to train computer science engineers able to:

  • Apprehend the complexity of logistics processes and to evaluate, integrate and develop decision-support tools that help to manage supply chains efficiently.
  • Integrate new communicating technologies in computer systems.

The acquired competencies cover four disciplines:

  • Computer Science.
  • Communicating technologies.
  • Optimization and decision-support.
  • Logistics.

The courses are organized in four main streams and two practical pieces of training:

Communicating Technologies and Supply Chains: Short range communication technologies, Technologies and supply chains.

Production of goods and services: Production planning, Production scheduling, Healthcare production, Industrial seminars, Visits.

Transportation and distribution: Distribution and vehicle routing, Warehousing, Forecasting, Industrial seminars, Visits.

Technical management: Specific presentations (Issues of supply chain management, intermodal transport, Inter/intra-organizational management, Lean Management, Information systems, reverse logistics)

Study project: It is conducted by a group of students. The goal is to develop a software prototype, a proof of concept or to conduct a study.

A six-month internship: An internship of six months is required to validate this last year. Examples from 2013/2014: Sopra Group, Thales Avionics, Nheolis, Amadeus, Eurocopter, ST, INESC Porto, ACCENTURE, Dassault system, etc.)

ITS Masters in Industrial Engineering

Contact: Nabil Absi

The ITS Masters in Industrial Engineering is an extra option linked to the master programme “Industrial Engineering and Operations Research” provided in the EMSE and exclusive for the ISMIN students who selected the ITS option above.

ITS International Track

This international track is adapted from the original ITS option for international exchange students. Four main modules are given in this track:

  • Information Technologies for Supply Chains;
  • Practical Modeling and Optimization in Logistics;
  • Semiconductor Manufacturing;
  • Communicating Technologies for Supply Chains.

Currently, SFL holds mutual agreements at the departmental level with the following academic partners:

  • Eindhoven University of Technology – Industrial Engineering (TU/e – IE)
  • Karlsruhe Institute of Technology – Industrial Engineering & Management (KIT-IEM)
  • National Taiwan University – Institute of Industrial Engineering (NTU-IIE)
  • University of Los Andes – Industrial Engineering
