Master in Industrial engineering

Master in Industrial engineering

Sustainable industrial engineering

Presentation and goals

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.



Further information

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. 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 Master Thesis will be required at the end of the internship period to be defended in front of a jury.
