A successful organisation needs experts in industrial engineering and management and logistics now and in the future!

Goals of the Degree Programme

The Industrial Engineering and Management studies combine technological know-how and economic thinking. The aim is to offer integrated ways of thinking as well as practical tools to develop entrepreneurship and organisation functions. The main emphasis is on the development of order–delivery chain processes.

An engineer often works in supervisory and managerial duties; therefore, attention is paid to the requirements in managerial duties and in personnel management. The aim is also to provide the basic know-how of industrial engineering and management as well as of marketing and administration and to encourage entrepreneurship. This Degree Programme also encourages initiative and creativity and prepares the students for project and team work. Also written and oral language skills are included in the studies.

The studies prepare the student to work especially in the following areas: in the development of demand-supply chains and within productional entrepreneurship, in wholesale business, software business, IT services, and in international trade and transport.

These extensive studies provide wide career prospects in various development and expert duties in the networking business life. Students can specialise in their studies according to their own goals, experience and according to the demands in the labour market. On the whole, this education offers a solid ground for life-long learning: for post-graduate studies in this field and for maintaining one’s expertise.


The studies concentrate on the managing and planning of information, cash and material flows and on applying the development methods and tools within different branches. Integrated thinking is applied in business development projects.  The special characteristics of at least one line of industry are studied in detail. These fields are: eBusiness, electronic industry and automation, food and environmental technology and chemical, information, data communications and communications technology.

The first two years in the Degree Programme contain mainly basic studies and common core professional studies that aim to create mathematical and natural scientific and technical basis for the professional studies. In the basic studies also communication skills are developed for example through the language studies.

In professional studies the main study areas are business development, logistics and information technology. All the students in the Degree Programme will complete the common core professional studies and logistics, business management and information systems modules.

Project type of studying is applied in the studies in various ways. The students will complete every year at least one extensive project. These projects are completed in cooperation with the local business always when possible.

An optional professional module will be chosen at the end of the second academic year. These module choices are offered so that each year adequate number of students will choose certain modules. This way the timetables can also be planned as efficiently as possible.

The degree contains 15 credit points of optional study units. These can be freely chosen from the courses offered at EVTEK or at its cooperation institutions or other higher education institutions. It is recommended to choose study units offered at EVTEK School of Business Administration or at the international partner institutions. It is also possible to choose a whole elective professional study module, provided that the student has the required background knowledge. Study units that support well the studies in the Industrial Engineering and Management Degree Programme are for example languages and business economy subjects.

Industrial Placement and Bachelor’s Thesis

The degree requirements contain 20 weeks (30 credit points) practical training, which is in most cases completed during summer. Recommended duties during the training are for example production, operation, planning, service and supervisory duties in production plants or in companies providing services.

The Bachelor’s Thesis, which is an extensive research, design or survey project on a sector of the studied field, will be completed during the last study year.
