No matter how big or how small, the success of every company largely depends on the business processes. An important aspect is, of course, the technology: machines, means of transportation, operation rooms or computers. In addition, it is important how people treat one another and how they are assessed. The methods used for planning and management play a role in how certain resources are deployed and how data and information should be used. Being able to correctly evaluate these aspects of business processes, you know which buttons to press to make the organization run smoothly and enhance performance.
In this bachelor's program you learn how to understand business processes from various angles: people, technology, data, information systems, economy and organization. You aim to make organizations more efficient and streamline the processes. You are focused on outcomes and motivated to solve bottlenecks, improve the quality and increase production.
After graduating, you receive your diploma Bachelor of Science in Engineering. Do you want to know more? Check out the Course structure for more information.
In the Industrial Engineering program at TU/e you will not analyze processes on an abstract level. Instead, you immediately get started with operational processes. We regularly take field trips, have a great deal of partnerships with multiple companies and do a lot of practical assignments. During research you use a lot of mathematics, data science and artificial intelligence models. Our students value this program for its hands-on approach, relatively small scale and excellent supervision by teachers.
Do you have a feel for and an interest in a combination of technology, organizations and business? Can you think outside of the box when it comes to solutions? Are you able to collaborate and want to invest in your communication skills? Then our 3-year Industrial Engineering bachelor's program is made for you.
As an Industrial Engineering student, be prepared to work hard. You successfully completed your pre-university certificate, including mathematics B. Affinity with design and technology is a must, experience in programming will come in handy. For more information, please visit the Admission and Enrollment page. Do you have an HBO propedeuse? Check the eligibility and additional requirements.
With a degree in Industrial Engineering you have a broad foundation as a technical engineer. Most of our students pursue a master's degree before starting their careers. The potential work field ranges from consultancies to logistics departments at multinationals. Check out the possibilities at After your bachelor's degree.
We offer you freedom of choice, allowing you to select elective courses. This enables you to create your own curriculum that aligns with your interests and personal preferences.

The study association represent the interests of Industrial Engineering students. It tries to let the students view their field of study from a different angle. It achieves this by means of excursions, lectures and symposia and by organizing a study trip. On the other hand, the association also organises sports tournaments, parties, a weekly drink, weekends and other forms of leisure activities to stimulate the relation between the members themselves.
