The Manufacturing Systems Engineering program is offered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
Because of digitization and automation, the manufacturing industry is now rapidly changing. The whole chain of products, machines, factories, warehouses and customers, or the Internet of Things, is able to share and exchange information. To fully exploit this network of information for more effective and efficient production, the manufacturing systems engineer of the future should have knowledge of the whole chain: from the technology inside the machine up to the level of supply chains. The master's program Manufacturing Systems Engineering offers this combination of technological knowledge of high-tech production systems and knowledge of production processes and supply chains, and shows how to apply this knowledge effectively at both system and network level. In other words: an excellent basis for a directing role in the high-tech manufacturing industry!Special master's program
