When it comes to the development, implementation, and management of technical solutions, industry needs people with quantitative and qualitative interdisciplinary management competencies.
This is becoming increasingly more relevant in a complex and globalized world where engineers capable of working at the interface between business and engineering are in high demand.
Study programme focus
On the MSc programme in Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) , you will participate in courses at a high academic level providing you with both quantitative and qualitative management competencies. You will work with mathematical optimization (operations research), simulation, and other quantitative tools together with a number of process tools that are crucial in the context of project management and change management.
In addition, the programme focuses on the typical areas where extensive management competencies play a decisive role—e.g. operations management, supply chain management, innovation management, and problem structuring. The programme also contains a compulsory course in technical management of sustainable development.
You can specialize in one of the three study lines:
- Innovation and Strategic Management
- Management and Analysis of Operations
- Production and Project Management
You should be aware, however, that your choice of courses in your individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.
From the very outset, Industrial Engineering and Management graduates have found jobs in a very wide range of companies and sectors.
A number of our graduates have been employed with consulting firms such as McKinsey, Deloitte, and PA Consulting, but also enterprises traditionally known to engage in engineering consultancy, such as COWI, Rambøll, and Atkins. Furthermore, some of them have also been employed with major Danish construction companies as well as industrial companies, including Novo Nordisk, LEGO, Siemens, and Vestas, where they have taken on various general project or operations management tasks. For some, the study programme has served as a stepping stone to start their own business.
