Bachelor in Industrial Engineering and Management
You think big, bigger, biggest. In the Industrial Engineering & Management study programme, you focus entirely on international maintenance management.
Every day, hundreds of people board aeroplanes. You are responsible for ensuring that these planes are in a good state of repair. You manage the maintenance of large ships, sustainable energy generation, or machines in factories. Not just for technical companies, but also in the care sector and for the government. You do not carry out maintenance yourself, but ensure that it takes place. And convince management that it is necessary.
You have a flair for technology. You enjoy working with people from around the world. You are quick to see how machines or processes work. You understand what steps you need to take. You are also keen to look beyond borders. You are confident, have self-belief and persuasive powers. And you approach your tasks responsibly.
