Overview

In this master track, you will focus on becoming an authority on Lean Engineering. You will learn to model and validate systems with multiple inputs and outputs using both white box modeling and system identification. You focus on control applications used in industry. You will deepen the knowledge from your technical bachelor. The course provides you with tools to improve manufacturing design and product development. By doing so, you will be able to link technological developments with the needs of business processes.

The course consists of:

  • lectures
  • individual and group assignments
  • experimental research and laboratory exercises
  • model development and simulation exercises
  • group cases and management games
  • minor projects
  • a major project including a management game

Teaching methods and specialization

The academic year comprises of semesters, during which you will be taught by means of lectures, lab sessions, and minor projects. After the taught component of the course, you will do a graduation project (thesis). The total study load is 2520 hours (90 ECTS credits).

The modules are thematically grouped in study units of 15 EC each. When you follow a module in a typical week you first have a lecture to gain theoretical knowledge, then you get practical experience by applying the gained knowledge in labs, continuing by using both theoretical and practical experience in solving a problem from industry in a minor project.

The minor projects allow you to specialize in relevant topics.

Profession

Industrial companies are always looking for well-trained professionals in the field of Lean Engineering. This Masters course is part of the educational programme at many companies and our industry contacts often have job openings for our graduates. Technological developments are important for improving products as well as manufacturing processes. These developments have, direct or indirect, impact on various functions within a company or even functions in the whole supply chain. This creates the need for broadly skilled engineers, having a system view, and being able to contribute to the integrated process and product development. The Lean Engineering master is an ‘integrator’ and has a process view when developing improvements.

The Lean Engineer may work in a variety of functions, technical as well as managerial. Examples are product engineer, production engineer, project manager, lean facilitator, R&D manager, operations manager, and innovation manager.

Countless job opportunities

Lean Engineering offers you a wide world of promising career prospects. There are countless job opportunities in the technical branches of industry. But you will also be qualified to work outside the technical sector: your expertise will be welcome in higher education, research institutes and development groups in companies and organizations.
