Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Industrial Engineering and Management
Teaching language: English

The Master’s programme Industrial engineering and management aims to give students with a solid base in engineering the tools needed to integrate engineering, economy and mathematics and prepare students for careers as managers and project leaders in the industry.

Building upon the students’ engineering background the programme provides knowledge in industrial management through a multi-disciplinary approach. It also increases their ability to adopt changes in the industrial environment in an efficient and responsible manner.

The first term consists of mandatory courses in Industrial project management, Corporate organization, Corporate finance, and Quality Management which puts the student’s engineering skills into the context of industrial management. The second and following terms, students choose to specialize themselves in the fields of Innovation Management, Operation Management, Finance or Quality Management.

The Operation Management profile teaches the skills needed to apply a holistic view of production and operations management issues in both manufacturing and service industries. This profile is mathematically intensive and utilizes quantitative methods to describe problems, analyze operations issues, and provide solutions for industries facing a dynamic, changing environment.

The Innovation Management profile focuses on developing and commercializing innovative products and new solutions. Central skills are technology and project management, product development and entrepreneurship.

The Finance profile deals with the theories and tools used in the financial markets such as financial instruments, asset pricing, risk management, portfolio evaluation and optimal asset management.

The Quality management profile provides knowledge on approaches for creating and sustaining an effective organisation. Quality management is a set of concepts and practices characterized by core principles such as customer focus, process management, continuous improvement, everyone’s participation, base decisions on fact and committed leadership. One of the central questions is how an organisation can improve its processes to provide maximum benefits to customers through the best use of available resources.

Employment and career opportunities

Following graduation students are prepared for interesting careers in cutting edge industries, for example as a R&D project leader in larger, technologically intensive companies or as a CTO at smaller companies or start-up. Students choosing to specialize themselves in finance may also find careers at larger financial institutions or companies with their own finance divisions.

With more and more people working for multinational corporations or in global supply chains, the study of international human resources and comparative industrial relations is becoming ever more important. Read more
With more and more people working for multinational corporations or in global supply chains, the study of international human resources and comparative industrial relations is becoming ever more important.

The increasing globalisation of the economy and pan-national employment legislation means that the ability to compare processes and practices across continents is a highly sought-after skill. This CIPD-approved course is extremely advantageous in securing a career in HRM. It gives you an understanding of the differences between the employment practices and industrial relations systems of varying countries and multinationals, and how they are influenced by social and economic factors. You also look at the influence of economic integration on changing systems of employment and industrial relations.

CIPD Course recognition
The course is approved by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) to the new equivalent advanced level postgraduate standard. You can enhance your studies by taking additional CIPD components that prepare you for CIPD membership. To qualify for membership you need to attend a series of skills workshops with presentations by guest speakers and complete a range of activities enabling you to develop practical HR skills.

You join CIPD as a student member and when you have passed all course units (including the dissertation) and the CIPD components, your CIPD membership will be automatically updated to Associate Member. Once you have applied your knowledge in the workplace, you can apply for Chartered membership.

There is an additional charge for both the required skill training and the CIPD student membership – contact the Masters Admissions Office for details.

We designed it to provide the business expertise essential for senior managers by combining specific engineering subjects with managing technology and manufacturing systems. You examine the latest business thinking and gain expert knowledge of engineering and technology issues and theories.

We combine topics such as:
-Finance.
-Marketing.
-Management strategy with modern industrial issues such as: project and quality management, manufacturing effectiveness, advanced manufacturing technology, supply chain management.

This mix of subjects reflects the challenges faced by today’s traditional manufacturing organisations.

The course includes the SAP Production Planning e-academy (USCM4e). You also have the opportunity to sit the SAP certification at extra cost. Sheffield Hallam University is a SAP Student Academy and a founding member of the SAP University Alliance.
