The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Industrial Engineering is a 120 credit point course (ECTS - European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) that can be completed in four semesters (or more as a part-time equivalent). The master course enables graduate students to develop key skills and research expertise in industry growth areas, as well as supporting their own strengths and interests.




The MIE program consists of three main phases: I Module Phase , II Industry Project  and III Thesis Phase.

After being well prepared and theoretically grounded during the module learning phase, the students are expected to apply their newly gained knowledge during the project phase in a real industry environment at a workplace. During the thesis stage students are expected to work on a scientific research project.
