The Master in Industrial Engineering and Management (MEGI) aims to train professionals with the cross-sectional profile that characterizes training in this area of Engineering. Accordingly, it addresses topics ranging from Production Management to Quality Engineering or Ergonomics, covering, among others, domains such as Industrial Logistics, Engineering Economy, or Computer Assisted Production. This cross-sectional training is highly adjusted to the needs of current organizations, which converts into excellent levels of employability.
The MEGI corresponds to the second cycle of the previous Integrated Master in Industrial Engineering and Management (MIEGI) and takes four semesters, three of them with different curricular units, including a wide range of options, and the last focused on the thesis' development.
The cross-sectional profile of Industrial Engineering implies that professionals in this area are searched for by very diverse organizations, from telecommunications companies to the automotive industry or consultancy companies. Therefore, the objective of MEGI is to train professionals with multidisciplinary skills that allow them to:
The Master in Industrial Engineering and Management has the same academic staff as the Integrated Master in Engineering and Industrial Management, characterized by a solid experience, accumulated over more than a decade of teaching experience.
The aforementioned experience comes along with scientific profiles, as most of the professors are also researchers at the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Research and Development Unit, a research centre with a top evaluation ("Excellent") that is associated with the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (UNIDEMI, https://www.unidemi.com/) .
Erasmus+ - Under this EU programme, students can study at a European university for up to 12 months, as part of the undergraduate programme. Studying abroad can have a positive effect on later job prospects, and is an opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence, and having contact with different cultures.
Companies - The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering maintains an excellent relationship with companies and other employers, enabling the students' participation in internships and research projects, and leading to master's dissertations that quite often culminate in the integration of students in the host companies.
The MEGI is aimed at candidates with an initial degree (Licenciatura) in the fields of Industrial Engineering and Management or closely related, who seek to deepen their knowledge in the scientific area of Industrial Engineering or diversify the skills acquired in a first university education cycle.
Therefore, MEGI is aimed at students who seek to combine technical engineering skills with a business vision and knowledge of the markets in which they operate.
The cross-sectional training in Industrial Engineering and Management leads to the diversification of the professional opportunities associated with it. The activities carried out may be either of a more technical profile or more management related, in different sectors of activity:
Portuguese students: 1500 €/year
Foreign students: 7000 €/year

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (DEMI) is a permanent organic unit of NOVA School of Science and Technology, devoted to education, to basic and applied scientific research and to providing services in the areas of Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The DEMI offers two integrated masters (Industrial Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering), five masters (Master in Maritime Logistics, Industrial Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Welding Engineering), two doctoral programs and several post-graduations.
Currently the DEMI has 38 teachers and 5 staff elements. The teachers of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering collaborate with various public and private institutions, particularly in developing research projects in scientific and technological areas relevant to Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.More info
