Master in Industrial engineering

Master in Industrial engineering

Sustainable industrial engineering 2nd year


Industry is of critical importance for the global economy.

Industrial engineering is the branch of engineering that is concerned with the efficient production of industrial goods as affected by elements such as plant and procedural design, the management of materials and energy, and the integration of workers within the overall system.

Sustainable Industrial Engineering addresses the issue of sustainability of industry in three ways: from an environmental point of view, from a social and societal point of view, from an economical point of view.

Sustainable industrial engineering has myriads of application fields since it encompasses the whole value chain and lifecycle of products: from the development of new and innovative machines, products-services to the market and recyclability



Atouts de la formation

Most of the courses will be taught at Génie Industriel, the industrial Engineering school of the Grenoble INP group. The school is centrally located in downtown Grenoble. You will have access to a high technology platform. Student life in Grenoble is very rich and active (Grenoble is classified N°1 for studies in France – Palmarès des villes étudiantes 2013-2014). Students have the opportunity to follow their interest whether it be in sports (leading center for mountain sports), the arts, non-profit organizations, international relations, or yet other options.

Each student will be required to complete an internship either at an industrial firm or in a research laboratory. This may be undertaken in France or abroad. This is an opportunity to consolidate and discover working methods and to learn how to manage real projects. A written dissertation will be required at the end of the training period to be defended in front of a jury.

Access conditions

The SIE Master addresses students owning a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Engineering or equivalent in:

  • Industrial Engineering
  • Supply Chain, Operations Management, Logistics and Transportation, Operational Research
  • Manufacturing Science, Product Design, Product Development, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Science, Information Systems

  Candidates for continuing education:

You are eligible for continuing education:

  • if you are resuming your studies after two years of interruption,
  • or if you followed a training course under the continuing education scheme in either of the past two years,
  • or if you are an employee, job seeker, or self-employed worker.

 If you do not have the diploma required for admission to the course, you can undertake a process of validation of prior personal and professional experience (VAPP).




The vocationally-oriented international programme, designed for foreign students, aims to train managers in the field of industrial engineering with a specialisation on sustainability issues relating to the product and its logistics chain.

- Industrial engineers with sustainable impact : the students will be able to find jobs in Industrial/ Mechanical/ Production/ Automation/ Aerospace/ Energy/ or Management Engineering

- Researchers in industry : the students will have plenty of opportunities to carry on their studies as PhD among one of the numerous international laboratories of the SIE partners (full members or associates) and the research community in the sustainable manufacturing domain.
