The studies of the LUT Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) are based on the combination of economy, engineering and management. The goal of the degree programme is to equip students for organisational development and business process management by merging technology and management skills.
The graduates are professional developers of businesses, organisations and processes. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the degrees in IEM, they are employed by a wide spectrum of industries, research institutions and public administration.
As a result, not tied to any specific industry, the success or failure of individual industries does not have a significant impact on the graduates' career prospects. The graduates have good career prospects, as they are equipped to learn and adapt to different job profiles and industrial contexts.
LUT IEM has been appointed an exceptional three times as "A Centre of Excellence in University Education" by the Finnish Higher Education Evaluation Council in the years 2001-2003, 2004-2006 and 2010-2012. In addition, Bachelor's programme and consecutive Master's programme Industrial Engineering and Management (named Operations Management since 2016) are accredited by ASIIN.
The Degree programme runs a Bachelor's programme (taught in Finnish) and six Master's programmes.
