About Industrial Engineering and Management at Linköping University

The programme provides knowledge in industrial management through a multi-disciplinary approach, giving you the skills to adopt changes in the industrial environment in a responsible and efficient manner.

Core courses in project management and organisation, management systems and sustainability, production planning and control, and quality management will help put your engineering skills in an industrial management context. After the first term, you will follow one of two profiles: Operations Management or Environmental Innovation Management.

The Operations Management profile deals with operations management issues in the manufacturing and service industries, providing approaches for creating and sustaining effective organisations. A central idea is how to improve processes to provide maximum consumer benefits through the best use of available resources. You will gain insight into technological trends and explore financial and engineering consequences of operational decisions. Quality is another important module, which introduces the concepts of lean production and the Six Sigma methodology. For the closing project course (12 ECTS), you will apply your knowledge by solving real-life production management problems.

The Environmental Innovation Management profile focuses on the development and commercialisation of resource-efficient products and sustainable solutions, looking at innovation in major corporations as well as entrepreneurial start-ups. In the final Innovation and Entrepreneurship project course (12 ECTS), you will learn how to tackle challenges associated with innovative activities.

Mandatory CSR courses

In addition to profile-specific courses, the programme contains mandatory courses in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and science and research methodology, to prepare you for the work in preparing a master's thesis. The thesis is usually written with another student and in close collaboration with a company. This may be a small local company or a global industrial corporation such as Ericsson or Scania.

Taught courses are characterised by a close relationship between teachers and students, with smaller classes and lively group discussions. Courses are assessed through written exams and hand-in assignments, and through group-based project work.

Strong industry presence

Linköping University is a Swedish pioneer in management education and has a strong tradition of industrial engineering, going back to the early years of the university in the 1970s. Thanks to our experienced and qualified teachers, you can be assured of reaching success. You will find a warm welcoming environment and a vibrant student community. Furthermore, as is always the case with Linköping University, there is a strong industry presence, with guest lectures from prominent representatives and cases based on real-world examples.

Our graduates enjoy interesting careers as R&D managers in tech-intensive companies, or as CTOs in smaller companies and start-ups. After completing the programme, you will be qualified for engineering positions in companies and authorities dealing with consulting, investment strategies, production planning and control, renewable energy, environmental consulting and waste management. Regardless of which profile you opt for, you will also be prepared for an academic career, should you wish to continue into research and pursue doctoral studies.
