This Industrial Engineering and Management programme from Linköping University gives you the skills to adopt changes in an industrial environment in a responsible and efficient manner, through established concepts in manufacturing, quality, and innovation.


This Industrial Engineering and Management programme from Linköping University builds on your prior knowledge in engineering and mathematics and integrates it into an industrial engineering and management context. 

You will learn how to analyse processes of tech companies to help steer them in the right direction by applying well-known methods and principles. The first semester has core courses in project management and organisation, production planning and control, lean production, quality, and environmental engineering.

From the second semester onwards, you follow one of these profiles:

  • Innovation Management
Rapid change is the new normal, and the pace of innovation is bound to accelerate even further. All innovations have to be managed, however most innovations follow a generic process. This profile focuses on the development and commercialisation of resource-efficient products and solutions. You follow subjects in management systems and sustainability, innovation management, industrial ecology, leadership and organisation, and business planning and entrepreneurship.
  • Operations Management
Provides a holistic view of operations management in manufacturing and service industries. You gain knowledge about approaches for creating, developing and sustaining an effective organisation that provides maximum benefits to its customers, with profitability as the starting point. Courses address the management of available resources, in particular with regard to the integration between materials and capacity. You learn about established strategies, planning principles and methods such as Planning and Control, Agile and Lean Production, Theory of Constraints (TOC) and Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRPII).
  • Quality Management
A set of concepts and practices characterised by core principles like customer focus, process management, continuous improvement, the participation of everyone, fact-based decisions, and committed leadership. A key question is how an organisation can improve its processes to provide maximum benefits to customers through best use of available resources. This profile provides insight about approaches for creating and sustaining an effective organisation, such as Six Sigma quality, quality and process development, and service development.
