The distinctive feature of our approach to Industrial Engineering and Management is that we combine classical industrial engineering, which emphasizes understanding and developing operational processes and complex systems, with a focus on strategic and entrepreneurial leadership. From this perspective, we offer multiple programs, majors, and minors related to Industrial Engineering and Management as well as a wide array of technology-based entrepreneurship and management courses for students from engineering and other disciplines of Aalto University.
We contribute to multiple degree programmes at Aalto University. Our most extensive involvement and closest to our competences are:
The Master’s Programme in Information Networks educates cross-disciplinary thinkers and innovators with technical yet human-centric skills. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between human beings and digital technologies on an individual, group, organisational and societal level.
