Achieve your full potential thanks to Saxion’s modern learning facilities
Interact with staff and students in an international learning environment
A Saxion Industrial Engineer is a business administrator who is specialised in finding sustainable solutions for quality- and productivity related problems in the production industry. These problems will be researched with a design based methodology, in multidisciplinary teams, after which solutions and interventions will be implemented. From a quality point of view, industrial engineers are increasingly lowering the environmental footprint of processes and products. In creating sustainable solutions new technologies and innovations are considered, and the way in which the solution can be successfully implemented in existing organisations. Identification, selection, acquisition, exploitation and protection of technology in relation to strategy development, innovation and production are at the core of solving this question. Because of the increasing speed of technological developments (technology push) and increasingly demanding customers (demand pull), productivity problems are becoming increasingly complex and have to be solved within a shorter timeframe. This is why it is important to identify and assess technological developments at an early stage. These developments are increasingly taking place abroad, with Germany as the front runner.
The Short Degree Programme Industrial Engineering & Management consists of seven taught modules and one graduation project.
General entry requirements apply. Additionally, international students looking to enrol in the Short Degree Programme Industrial Engineering & Management will need a steady knowledge base matching that of students enrolled in the Dutch four year fulltime Industrial Engineering & Management programme. This means that you will need to show sufficient knowledge and skills in the following Industrial Engineering & Management disciplines:
Furthermore, applicants need to have at least 6 months of relevant experience in industry (e.g. assignments, projects, internships).
During the enrolment process, you can be asked to make a assignment at home. The results from this assignment are taken into account in the application process. A digital interview can be part of the enrolment process as well. If this is the case, you will be informed during the enrolment process.
Graduated Industrial Engineers are specialised in finding sustainable solutions for quality- and productivity related problems in discreet systems in the production industry. This makes them especially suitable for managerial positions in technical production environments. Because of their skills in spotting technological innovations and trends, Industrial Engineers are often found in international business both within the Netherlands as well as abroad.
