In addition to the objectives specified in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance, there are also specific objectives for this programme. Graduates from the programme shall:

Knowledge and understanding

  • Demonstrate extensive and substantial specialised knowledge and understanding within the field of Industrial Management and its scientific basis as a complement to, and an extension of, technical, mathematical and scientific knowledge
  • Demonstrate in-depth insight into current research and development in the field.
  • Demonstrate advanced knowledge on the establishment, management, planning, monitoring and development of, in particular, industrial/technology-intensive companies and organisations on the basis of strategic choices and how these choices affect the efficiency of the organisation and its stakeholders' contributions and yield.
  • Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of scientific methods and tools used to analyse, calculate, process and evaluate facts within the field (including engineering, natural science and social science).

Skills and abilities

  • Demonstrate the ability to, through a holistic approach and perspective shifts, critically, constructively and creatively identify, formulate, reflect on, manage and solve technical, economic and organisational problems in industrial/technology-intensive enterprises, both individually (deep) and together (composite), and the ability to place individual operations and technologies in their context and thus contribute to the development of knowledge, and also to evaluate this work.
  • Demonstrate the ability to, both independently and in groups of different composition, put theories within Industrial Management into practical action and create solutions with regard to technical and scientific aspects while taking into account relevant scientific, professional and societal standpoints, in order to achieve economic, social and ecological sustainable development.
  • Demonstrate the ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge within Industrial Management and engineering, and demonstrate the ability to analyse, assess, manage, model, simulate, predict and evaluate events and problems, including contexts with limited information.
  • Demonstrate the skill required to participate in research and development work or to work independently in other advanced contexts.
  • Demonstrate readiness for the successful completion of planning and managerial assignments at different levels within industrial/technology-intensive enterprises, both independently and in groups.
  • Demonstrate the capacity to, in both national and international contexts, both orally and in writing, in dialogue with different groups, clearly account for and discuss their conclusions and the knowledge and arguments on which these are based.

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

  • Demonstrate the ability to perform assessments while taking into account relevant scientific, societal and ethical aspects, and demonstrate awareness of ethical aspects of research and development work within industrial and technology-intensive enterprises.
  • Demonstrate insight into the opportunities and limitations of science and engineering, its role in society and the responsibility of human beings for how it is used, including social and economic aspects as well as environmental and work environment aspects.
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify the need of further knowledge and take responsibility for continuously developing their knowledge and skills.
