Manufacturing Systems Engineering is a unique program in the Netherlands on the interface of machine technology and industrial processes. This program satisfies the needs of industry for "broad engineers" who understand the technology of machines as well as the complex environment these machines are operating in.
Challenge on multiple levels
Because of digitization and automation, the manufacturing industry is now rapidly changing. The whole chain of products, machines, factories, warehouses, and customers, or the Internet of Things, is able to share and exchange information. To fully exploit this network of information for more effective and efficient production, the manufacturing systems engineer of the future should have knowledge of the whole chain: from the technology inside the machine up to the level of supply chains. The master's program Manufacturing Systems Engineering offers this combination of technical knowledge of high-tech production systems and knowledge of production processes and supply chains and shows how to apply this knowledge effectively at both system and network level. In other words: an excellent basis for a directing role in the high-tech manufacturing industry!
Special master's program
This is a joint master's program of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences which can be studied as a special track in either the Mechanical Engineering master's program or the Operations Management & Logistics master's program. After graduation in this special master's program, you receive the degree of Master of Science in Manufacturing Systems Engineering on the diploma of the master's program Mechanical Engineering in the former case and on the diploma of Operations Management & Logistics in the latter case.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO).
