Industrial Engineering and Management

The School for Industrial Engineering and Management's research will lead the transition towards an industry adapted to a sustainable society. New materials, additive manufacturing, sustainable production, new business models, sustainable energy systems, processes for recycling, innovation, and entrepreneurship are just a few of the research areas that gather under the school's umbrella. The school also has research in learning, from preschool to higher education.
