Integrated Master in Industrial Engineering and Management


Integrated Master in Industrial Engineering and Management

Started in the academic year 2008/2009. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 300. The Master is accredited by the Ordem dos Engenheiros and the FEANI (European Federation of National Engineering Associations) in order to assign the EUR ING title (European Engineer). 


The central goal of the Integrated Master is to train industrial engineers, at university level, with a solid preparation in engineering sciences covering the areas of Production Management, Industrial Logistics, Quality Engineering, Ergonomics, Economic Engineering, Technologies and Information Systems, Industrial Technology and Automation, Design and Production assisted by Computer in integrated production environments.

Given the great diversity of areas of interest of Industrial Engineering, the Master presents itself as a broadband course, with a duration of five years focusing in the requirements of companies (industrial or services) and organizations (public or private) in the areas of Industrial management (production, supplies, logistics, quality, maintenance) and Industrial Engineering Production (design, planning, preparation, implementation and monitoring).
