Master in Industrial engineering

Master in Industrial engineering

Sustainable operations management 2nd year

Presentation and goals

This Master's program is meant to train professional experts in Sustainable Industrial Engineering, able to deploy skills in a global industrial environment and face the future challenges of the transitions (ecological, digital, societal).
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 products and services, to the end of life of the systems.

The specialization in sustainable product development occurs in year 2.

The sustainable operational management course investigates the key domains that will give the students tools to deal with challenges related to the strong environmental impact of human activities, and provides a systemic and interdisciplinary understanding of the situation. Major topics are sustainable supply chain management, data analytics, operational excellence, socio-economic aspects of sustainability for industry 4.0. There is a significant amount of research to be carried out still and this major offers the opportunity to follow a research-oriented path that opens up to a doctoral program. The Industrial path allows to directly claim for a job in industry. Our lectures are at the cutting edge of knowledge and involve teachers from our affiliated research laboratories, such as G-SCOP for industrial engineering (both supply chain and product development), CERAG for management sciences, PACT for sociology and GAEL for industrial economics.

Sectors of activity

The program leads to careers in teaching and research (private or public) with, in particular, a target of 50% of students going on to doctoral studies. Other students tend to go into industry in France or in their countries of origin, in industrial engineering careers. For the Operations management program, in the supply chain : production, procurement, logistics engineer... ; for the Product development program, in product design careers : product engineer, calculation, simulation... and lastly for the Industrial innovation program, careers in innovation: innovation project management, consultants in innovation, monitoring, etc
