About

The 2nd-cycle study programme in Industrial Engineering leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture, and the Faculty of Economics and Business.

Overview

Upon enrolment, students choose one of the two options available: 

Mechanical Engineering option: The goal of the programme is to provide engineers with theoretical-scientific and special  practical skills to work on the most demanding engineering problems in companies where the engineers are able to solve difficult and complex problems based on theoretical and practical solutions, procedures  and methods. In addition, they are able to thing about economic and business issues when solving problems and to manage production and business processes in manufacturing companies and other environments. The students gain ability of abstract and associative study and analysis of problems in order to provide solutions and development of different disciplines and transfer knowledge to practice. The students learn how to effectively apply modern engineering tools to solve the most demanding mechanical engineering problems, combined with business oriented challenges. The possibility to adapt technical knowledge to other areas of expertise and interdisciplinary character of industrial manager’s profile enables their participation in all technical fields and economic sectors all over the world.
