The program is an engineering program leading to the “Cand. Polyt” title. It is designed to extend on Industrial or Business Administration Engineering bachelor profiles and will give you competencies and skills for advanced analysis and solution design for a broad range of management engineering topics.
A range of technical/engineering bachelor degrees in business or industrial engineering fulfill the admission requirements. Please see the degrees in the curriculum. Students with another technical/engineering bachelor degree may be admitted, if the applicant is considered as having comparable educational prerequisites. In order to obtain the best outset for the learning activities requiring solid analytical skills, we strive to recruit students with overlapping skills and knowledge.
We recommend a profile as listed below.
