DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

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.
