The performance of any business process depends on many factors. Clearly, the engineering used is important whether the process involves machines, means of transport, operating rooms or computers. The way in which people are evaluated and treat one another also has an effect. As do planning and management: how are capacity and resources used? Only once you assess these aspects, will you know what you need to adjust to improve performance.

Looking from all sides

If you have a feel for and interest in engineering, then our 3-year Industrial Engineering bachelor’s course is for you. You will learn how to examine a business process from the perspectives of people, engineering and organization. You develop a thorough theoretical basis, and gain valuable experience through practical applications of this knowledge.

Major Industrial Engineering

A key focus of the course is research into improving the performance of business processes. This can be achieved, for example, through the redesign of the (engineering) operations or by re-structuring parts of the organization. Relevant performance criteria include economic results, time and quality, as well as the required innovative capacity. 

You will use mathematical and statistical models during your research. What’s more, you will come into contact with real work in the field through collaborative alliances between the Industrial Engineering bachelor's program and various companies. 

Our program received the highest score of all similar courses in both the Elsevier 2016 and the Higher Education Choices Guide 2016.
