Advanced solutions for logistics and supply chain performance

Industrial Engineering Designers offer advanced solutions

Partnering with TU/e’s professional post-master technological designer program Industrial Engineering boosts your logistics brain and muscles performance. If you want to know what is the next thing after Lean and Six Sigma and make it happen in your company, you will find this program satisfying these aspirations.

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) houses a wide variety of technological expertise, top-notch research facilities, excellent researchers and numerous spin-offs. TU/e, with its various research programs, ranks amongst the best universities in the world. In the field of logistics, TU/e offers specifically a two-year post-master level engineering degree program (Professional Doctorate in Engineering, PDEng), specializing in Industrial Engineering. This program combines the engineering capabilities of four research groups specialized in Operations, Planning, Accounting and Control, Information Systems, Innovation Management, and Human Performance Management, and is embedded in the 4TU.School for Technological Design, Stan Ackermans Institute.

A systems approach dedicated to help your company

The Industrial Engineering program focuses on the multidisciplinary design and implementation of systems to manage and control design, supply, production, distribution, and maintenance of products and services. During the program, the Industrial Engineering trainees focus on the logistics challenges being faced by the industry world-wide: a systems approach to problems related to effective and efficient innovation, production, distribution and use of products and services, including information and communication systems. The process of implementation of the designed solutions incorporates the latest insights on change management and human resource management.

Solving practical industrial problems

As part of this program, the Industrial Engineering trainees participate in an industrial design/development project for a period of ten months, with a company. For you, the industrial partner, such a project is a fixed-date, fixed-price project. The design project, which is focused on delivering solutions to your practical logistics problems, enables industrial partners and TU/e to establish a close partnership. The Industrial Engineering trainees are highly skilled engineers who use the science available at the university to solve complex logistic problems. The design projects will be defined by your company and executed by our Industrial Engineering trainees, supervised by one of our highly experienced design scientists; the result is usually a proof of concept or an improved control system.

Scouting talent

The involvement in the recruitment market for the early scouting and attracting of talented logistics business process engineers/designers allows your company to be a step ahead of the competition in terms of the labour market. Investing in, and involving a talented Industrial Engineering design trainee during the design project provides you the opportunity to get to know the trainee well and to find an optimal match within your company. Once the program has been completed, the Industrial Engineering Designer is ready to join your company!
